Meta’s Connect Event Will Reveal More Details On The Quest 3 Next Month

Come September, Meta will share more details on its next next-gen virtual reality headset as well as reveal plans for AI, VR and more

Facebook parent company Meta has revealed that users will get more details of its next-generation Quest VR headset next month during its Meta Connect event

The event is scheduled to take place on September 27th and will feature the Quest 3, Meta’s all-new successor to the Quest 2 which the company promised will have many new features. 

Meta previously teased details on Quest 3, which comes in a 128GB model priced at $500 and boasts a 40% slimmer design compared to Quest 2, with pancake lenses, colour passthrough for mixed reality, and new Touch Plus controllers.

“Mark your calendars because we’ll have lots more to share at Meta Connect, which returns this year on September 27,” Meta confirms on its website.

More details on AI, VR and VR

Meta’s Connect event will not only share more details on the Quest 3 but will also discuss and reveal more of the company’s AI and AR plans. 

The company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated during Meta’s quarterly results, “Investments that we’ve made over the years in AI, including the billions of dollars we’ve spent on AI infrastructure, are clearly paying off across our ranking and recommendation systems and improving engagement and monetisation.” 

Meta’s Quest platform already heavily incorporates AI in its features, and the company is actively looking into utilising generative AI. Recently, Meta hinted that Horizon Worlds might receive AI-enhanced building tools.

The metaverse company’s long-term vision involves creating advanced AR glasses that will function similarly to its VR headsets. These AR glasses are intended to support hand-tracking, depth-sensing, object recognition and more. 

Meta is known to save major hardware reveals for its Connect event and with the Quest 3 being its, “Most powerful headset yet,” consumers will be excited for the reveal next month.
