Meta’s premium VR headset comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR2 Plus chip, giving it a 50 percent power boost over the Snapdragon XR2 in the Quest 2.

Paired with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, the Meta Quest Pro is geared up to be an impressive entry to the premium VR headset market.

Other buy options are also available through a couple of other retailers. Best Buy is taking preorders for the Quest Pro, as well as Amazon.

So if you don’t want to go directly through the Meta Store, you have a couple of other options.

Meta’s stepping up its focus on VR

Mark Zuckerberg and the team at Meta have been shifting their focus toward virtual and augmented reality over the last few years. And it all started with the acquisition of Oculus, which made Quest headsets.

Now, Meta is taking a significant step forward with a much more powerful entry into VR hardware in the Meta Quest Pro.

But of course, that upgrade comes with an upgraded price tag. You’ll have to fork over $1,499 to experience Meta’s latest VR headset.
