However, in terms of the core SoC, although many sources have indicated that Quest 3 will be equipped with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, which is rumored to be called Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2
Gen 2, but at the Qualcomm Summit at the end of last year and this year’s CES 2023, Qualcomm did not release any information. In this regard, Lynch believes that this incident is related to the agreement between Qualcomm and Meta in September last year, which delayed the release of new chips.
So far, what we can know is that Quest 3 will use a thinner and lighter Pancake lens module, and the screen will still be LCD; the front panel has two color cameras and a black and white camera for color see-through; the bottom has contacts so it’s compatible with the Meta Quest Pro’s charging dock.
Considering that the newly launched VR all-in-one machines basically use Pancake modules and higher-resolution screens, it can be seen that VR has entered a new stage in terms of display.
