Meta’s “Quest Pro” VR Headset May Have Leaked in New Video


- Advertisment -

Images and, later, a video of a “Meta Quest Pro” virtual reality (VR) headset surfaced online, posted to Facebook by Ramiro Cardenaswho claims the device was left in a hotel room (Thanks, Peter! via Reddit). The device shown resembles the Project Cambria headset that Meta has been publicly teasing since late last year and resembles the device spotted in leaked installation videos.

The video shows Cardenas unpacking the device and revealing a black headset and controller with what appears to be an updated design. While the headset has three cameras on the front, the controllers have a design that ditches the hollowed-out loop design that houses the sensors for something sturdier.

The packaging is labeled “Meta Quest Pro” in the top left corner and an image of the VR headset and controllers. Cardenas also provided a close-up of the label stuck to the box, which reads “Not for resale – technical sample,” and told The edge that the person staying in the room has since claimed the headsets.

The images and video surfaced exactly one month before Meta’s Connect event on October 11, matching the timeline that CEO Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed for when the company will unveil its next VR headset. We expect to learn all about Project Cambria / the “Quest Pro” and his other plans for the metaverse, AR and VR.

Cardenas originally shared the images in the comment portion of a message on the Oculus Quest 2 Facebook group and said multiple devices were left behind. It’s a remarkable story, but not without (handy) precedent, including iPhone 4 prototype was left in a bar in 2010 as the most famous event, while more recently the unreleased Pixel 7 was sold on eBay, and a Pixel Watch prototype was also apparently lost in a restaurant.

The sticker on the box indicates that it could be a ‘technical monster’.

In July, Bloomberg reported developer Steve Moser found references to the “Oculus Pro” in Meta’s code, so it’s possible this is the name Meta chose for the upcoming device. Meta didn’t immediately respond to The edge‘s request for comment.

Update Sept 11, 10:18 PM ET: Updated to include pictures of the . to add video.
