An Oculus Quest 2 successor sample has popped up online, and it looks like Project Cambria will arrive in the form of Meta Quest Pro. Leaked clips give us a glimpse at the company’s next best VR headset and shiny new controllers, but not much has changed when it comes to its packaging.
In Rough and Ready Unboxing, Creator Ramiro Cardenas (aka Zectariuz Gaming) shares footage of the successor to Oculus Quest 2 a few weeks before the unveiling of its Meta Connect. Oddly, Cardenas found a seemingly upcoming VR headset in a hotel room, which suggests it was left behind by a forgetful early adopter.
The Meta Quest Pro is undeniably part of the Oculus Quest 2 bloodline, but the newcomer boasts a black aesthetic and various AR bells and whistles. Clips from Cardenas reveal the front-facing headset cameras and additional lenses on each controller, something that will improve the device’s tracking and provide access to augmented reality.

In addition, the short video shows off Meta Key Quest Pro packaging, but it looks like the Facebook firm is sticking with its current branding. The retail rendition of the VR headset essentially looks like the Quest 2 Rework, complete with the Quest Pro label on the left corner and a different product image.
in a statement made to ledge, Cardenas says the VR headset’s caretaker has retrieved the device, but it’s not clear exactly whose it belongs. The front of its box is clad with the label “Not for Resale – Engineering Specimen,” so it could belong to either a developer or even a Meta employee.
The leaked Meta Quest Pro footage appears to be legit, but we’d still recommend taking a quick viewing with a grain of salt. Engineering samples don’t necessarily indicate a final product, so the headset may look a little different when it debuts at next month’s Connect conference.Get latest news and articles related to gaming only at Gaming Strat.
