    Facebook prepares a smaller, lighter Oculus Quest with a screen up to 120Hz


    For some time now, we knew about the fact that Oculus, the division of Facebook focused on the development of virtual reality devices, was already working on a new version of its Oculus Quest headphones . Initially scheduled to go out later this year, supply chain problems stemming from the current global pandemic have delayed their launch in 2021.

    Despite the great expectation generated by the original Oculus Quest , being the first independent VR device that did not require a connection to a PC, the complaints of the vast majority came due to its large size and weight, even branded as being quite uncomfortable for prolonged use. Although other comparisons with the Oculus Rift also emerged, the company’s flagship headphones, which, understandably, offered greater power and features when jointly supported by a computer.

    That’s why now, beyond a problem, the company has seen this delay as an opportunity .

    As they have shared from Bloomberg, it seems that Facebook has not yet finalized the final design of the new Oculus Quest, seeking a reduction in size and weight of up to 15% with its predecessor model. However, the main challenges will be focused on offering this reduction along with some hardware improvements, highlighting a possible performance upgrade through its display.

    And it is that as confirmed by sources close to the company, it seems that Oculus would be testing new panels with refresh rates of 90 Hz and 120 Hz , an improvement that would not only provide a more fluid visual experience, but would be a huge leap over the current model and the main devices of the competition, currently included between 60 Hz for movies and 72 Hz for VR experiences.

    However, it should be noted that the Oculus Quest have not yet reached one year of life, so it is expected that this new set will only come as a review of them , and not as a new model.

    At the moment we only know this information from anonymous informants without having announced anything official by Facebook itself, so we will have to wait at least until the beginning of summer to confirm its arrival.
