Reports suggest that Meta (Facebook) is developing two new VR headsets, with very different display technologies - one with mini-LED displays, and the other with OLED microdisplays (as we reported in August 2021).

The Oculus Quest Pro (codenamed Cambria) will be based on mini-LED displays, . Meta aims to launch the Quest Pro in the summer of 2022 and hopes to sell 3 million headsets by the end of the year.

The second headset will be the Oculus Quest 3, and this one will be based on microOLED displays. The Quest 3 will be released later, likely in September 2022.

In September 2021 we reported that Facebook is stepping up its investments in OLED technologies for VR and AR applications. We ran a story that speculated on Facebook is working with eMagin on the OLED microdisplays.
