Roughly one year ago, Oculus execs made it known that there would be no Quest Pro or Quest 3 headset anytime soon, with the company poised to continue supporting and pushing its best-selling Quest 2 headset for the foreseeable future. Now one year on, things may have changed, with reports indicating we'll see a Quest Pro later this year with beefed up specifications.
According to notable analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who has primarily been associated with Apple devices in recent years, Facebook/Meta is currently planning a new VR headset. Initially thought to be the Quest 3, Kuo now believes that this new headset will be known as the Quest 2 Pro.
Some of the upgrades expected for the Quest Pro include 2160×2160 Mini LED displays, a new dual-element lens design and possibly some new features like facial expression recognition and perhaps eye-tracking.
Currently, Meta is working on a higher-end VR headset known as Project Cambria. As pointed out by UploadVR, this device isn't planned to be the Quest 3 and appears to be more of a mixed-reality device, with eye tracking, face tracking and passthrough cameras.

KitGuru Says: The next couple of years are going to be quite exciting in the VR space. With any luck, we'll see a new Valve headset or VR game, the PlayStation VR2 and new VR tech from Oculus over the next couple of years.
