Facebook bought the virtual reality technology company Oculus in 2014 and launched the virtual reality glasses called Oculus Quest in May of last year. Facebook has leaked its all-in-one Oculus Quest 2 VR headset earlier today. The headset will have a higher-resolution and will be a more powerful all-in-one virtual reality headset. The headset has a white strap that looks like it will get dirty easily.
According to several videos leaked on Facebook Blueprint, the Oculus Quest 2 will be lighter and more comfortable than Oculus Quest. The Oculus Quest’s rigid rubber head cage has been replaced with a white “soft-touch” strap that looks like it will definitively stain in a short span of time. The controllers also have been tweaked to be more comfortable.
The new headset has a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage for games and other apps while Quest had Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The display has also been upgraded with nearly 2K resolution per eye, 50 percent more pixels than before, which is going to be the highest-resolution Oculus headset.
Quest 2 will be plugged into a VR-ready PC like the first Quest with the link cable to play PC VR games, but this defeats the purpose of wireless VR.

The release date or price for the Quest 2 has not been announced yet.
