Lek Appears To Show Meta’s Quest Pro Headset A Month Before Launch
September 12, 2022
Meta’s Quest Pro headset is expected next month, but a leaked video seems to show it in full. It was originally posted to Facebook by Ramiro Cardenas, who said multiple devices (labeled “engineering samples”) had been left in a hotel room.
In the video (tweeted by security expert Kevin Beaumont), Cardenas shows off a black headset with three front cameras that resembles the minimal glimpse we’ve seen so far of the Project Cambria headset previously teased by Meta. It also resembles the model featured in a leaked how-to video. He also unveiled the new controllers, with a new design (again, similar to the one featured in the leaked tutorial video) that replaces the previous loop-through controllers.
The packaging reads ‘Meta Quest Pro’ along with a sticker that reads ‘Not for resale – engineering sample’. It also shows images of the headset and controllers. Cardenas told The edge that the occupant of the room has since claimed the headsets.
With the Quest Pro, Mark Zuckerberg promised a “high-end virtual reality experience”, with a non-wired headset. He hinted that it could have additional sensors that make it useful for activities outside of gaming, along with eye tracking, face tracking, and more. “It’s great for gaming, but it’s not just for gaming,” he said. Previously, the name “Meta Quest Pro” was spotted in metacode by Bloombergso that seems to be the final name.
