The Oculus Go is being touted as a standalone VR headset that sits right in between the high-end Oculus Rift and the mobile Gear VR solutions. At the Oculus Connect conference last October, Facebook said that the Oculus Go will go on sale in 2018. Now, it looks like the standalone VR headset might be on track as per an FCC listing. The listing lists two variants of the Oculus Go — MH-A32 and MH-A64 featuring 32 GB and 64 GB onboard storage respectively. Facebook is pegging the starting price of the device to be US$199, which could very well imply the price of the 32 GB version.

The FCC listing shows the wireless specifications that the headset will operate on. However, according to a report in Tom's Hardware, the Oculus Go features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC with support for 3 Degrees of Freedom (3DoF). The lightweight headset will have soft, elastic adjustable straps. The lenses use next-gen optics designed to offer better clarity and the same field-of-view (FoV) as the Rift. The displays are fast-switch LCDs having a resolution of 2560 x 1440. The Oculus Go also features integrated spatial audio along with support for a 3.5 mm headphone jack. 

Since the Go runs on Android, VR apps developed for the Gear VR should be compatible with the Go. The controllers, too, should be cross-compatible with both Gear VR and the Go. While Oculus is yet to offer any information about possible launch dates, the FCC listing should mean that the product is not too far away.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
