The Quest Pro touts a number of upgrades over the existing Quest 2, including a more capable processor, slightly improved displays, a new design for the body and controllers, inward-facing cameras for eye and face tracking and colour video feed for mixed reality applications.

Pre-orders are now open, with the headset hitting stores on 25 October for US$1,499.99. The package includes the headset itself, Meta Quest Touch Pro controllers, stylus tips, partial light blockers and a charging dock.

The Quest Pro is essentially a beefier version of the Quest 2, which will continue to be sold for US$399. The former is supposedly being marketed towards businesses and VR enthusiasts, while the latter is for gamers and fitness buffs.
