During Joe Rogan's Spotify podcast, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that Meta's next virtual reality headset would arrive in October this year during the company's annual Connect event.
The headset has some important features, Zuckerberg said, discussing virtual reality at the beginning of the podcast. The device would focus on "social presence" with eye and face tracking features. Zuckerberg said the headset is designed to capture users' facial expressions and change your digital avatar's facial expressions according to yours in real time to improve communication in virtual reality.
At last year's Connect conference, Meta announced a high-end headset codenamed Project Cambria, and from what Zuckerberg said, the headset released in October is its final consumer version.
Earlier leaks hinted that the official name of the Project Cambria VR headset could be Meta Quest Pro. Project Cambria is expected to be significantly more expensive than the current Quest, which has gone up in price to $399 since August.
