What the Meta Quest 3 VR Headset and Controllers Look Like

Meta Quest fans got an unexpected treat recently. A surprise unboxing video popped up on the internet, showing what the Meta Quest 3 VR headset and controllers look like. Posted on Reddit first, and then on X (previously known as Twitter) by user VR Panda. Alex From CHN, the video quickly generated a lot of buzz.

While it offers limited information and leaves many Meta Quest 3 specs still shrouded in mystery, the leaked video does provide valuable visual confirmation of the device’s design and aesthetics.

The Unboxing

In the video, we see a brown Meta Quest 3 box being opened and the VR headset and two Touch Plus controllers taken out. The headset stands out with its streamlined design, which is noticeably thinner than its predecessor, the Oculus Quest 2.

Meta has already confirmed this, highlighting a 40% reduction in the headset’s profile on their website. Such a compact design suggests enhanced comfort, which is likely to be a hit among users who indulge in extended VR gaming.

We also get a good look at the Touch Plus controllers. The design of the controllers align with what Meta had teased earlier in June. Interestingly, one thing that’s missing from the video is the charging dock. Though Meta hasn’t officially announced it, an FCC approval hints that such an accessory will be launched — potentially as a separate purchase.

Meta Quest 3 is Coming Soon.

Price-wise, the Quest 3 is set to have a tag of $499. For this cost, buyers can expect a device that promises superior clarity and enhanced features compared to the more budget-friendly Quest 2. Mark Zuckerberg, the big boss at Meta, has shared his excitement about the Quest 3. He believes it stands out because of its advanced mixed reality capabilities and its sleek, modern design.

We’re all eagerly waiting for the grand reveal on September 27th at Meta Connect 2023. Even though we’ve seen a bit of what the Meta Quest 3 VR headset and controllers look like in the leaked video, we’re more excited to find out all the things the device can do.
