According to reports, Meta has settled on the name of a new VR headset. Although the device is no longer expected to arrive as the Quest 2 Pro, it will be the long-rumoured Project Cambria. The Meta Quest Pro could cost upwards of US$1,000 when it arrives this autumn, though.

Mark Gurman has outlined more details about a next-generation Meta VR headset, initially thought of as the Quest 2 Pro. For context, Ming-Chi Kuo has been making predictions about a new Oculus VR headset for months, most recently in June. Also, Meta has demonstrated several prototypes codenamed Butterscotch, Half Dome, Starbust and Holocake 2, discussed separately.

Incidentally, the latter resembled Project Cambria, which Gurman claims that Meta will launch as the Quest Pro, not the Quest 2 Pro. While Meta has not started teasing a new VR headset release yet, developer Steve Moser discovered references to 'Pair Meta Quest Pro right controller' within code strings. Unfortunately, Moser has not reported on any other Quest Pro references yet.

Gurman adds that Meta could unveil the Quest Pro in October, but for upwards of US$1,000. In comparison, Meta sells the Quest 2 for US$299 or US$399 with 256 GB of storage. As we have discussed previously, the Quest Pro is believed to contain significant hardware upgrades from the Quest 2, such as higher-resolution displays, eye tracking, new controllers and superior external cameras for colour AR. If Meta's prototype teasers are anything to go by, the Quest Pro could be the first VR headset that supports HDR too, among other features.
