There are first pictures and also a possible release date for the successor of the Questauge (test): According to Walkingcat, the new VR headset may be released on September 15, 2020 with a schedule in the area of the developer conference OC7 lies. According to the pictures and some photos, the head-mounted screen is very similar to the previous Oculus Quest.
The original model was released in early May 2019 and is the most successful VR headset from Facebook subsidiary Oculus. According to an earlier Bloomberg report, the new model should be significantly lighter at around 450 grams instead of 571 grams and more comfortable to wear thanks to the weight reduction. As with the Rift S, the fabric cover must be replaced with plastic. The photos of a preliminary device support this statement. The two Velcro straps should also be more elastic.
A higher frequency of up to 120 Hz was mentioned for the two screens. However, due to the battery life, Oculus decided to limit it to 90 Hz. In the Oculus Quest, the two OLED panels work with 60 Hz for videos and with 72 Hz in games with 1,440 x 1,600 pixels per eye. The Pupil Removal (IPD) slider is no longer available in the quest sequel.
In addition to the Oculus Quest, Facebook currently only sells the Oculus Rift S. Oculus Go (test) was discontinued in June 2020. As of December 2020, no new apps or updates for existing software for the 160 euro VR headset will be accepted. In the future, the focus will be on the search for his successor and the Rift S. That’s why Facebook also bought Ready at Dawn, the studio behind Lone Echo, an excellent VR title.
