What is the Meta Quest Pro?
The Meta Quest Pro, or Project Cambria, is an upgraded version of the Quest 2 by Meta. The headset has been under development since 2021, officially being announced at the Meta Connect 2022 keynote.
Unlike the Quest 2, which is made for gaming, the Quest Pro is more of a super-user device. A lot of its features are made for working in VR and taking advantage of social experiences in the metaverse:
- Wireless charging
- New redesigned controllers
- Face tracking
- Body tracking
The Pro was rumored for a while as an upgrade to the Quest 2, which is the highest selling VR headset of all time.

Here are some video reviews on the Quest Pro:
The Quest Pro features all new pancake lenses, which are 40% smaller than the lenses on the Quest 2. Pancake lenses fold light inside the optical module and reduce the space needed to display images in your head.
Because of the pancake lenses, the Quest Pro is 40% slimmer than the Quest 2.
The Quest Pro features an LCD display with 1800 x 1920 pixels per eye and a default 90 Hz refresh rate.
Meta says that the new Pro display has 75% more contrast than on the Quest 2. This provides a more vibrant color palette and more realism when the passthrough camera is active.
Field of View
The Quest Pro features a 106º horizontal and 96º vertical field-of-view. This is a nice upgrade over the Quest 2, which only has a 90 degree field of view.
The Quest Pro features the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2+ system on a chip. It is the first processor developed since Meta and Qualcomm announced their partnership together. The XR2+ offers 50% more power than the original XR2 found in the Quest 2.
The Pro features 12 GB of RAM.
The Quest Pro headset features full color passthrough. This allows you to see your room surroundings in full color. The passthrough cameras are 4 times higher quality than on the Quest 2.
The headset itself fits like an oversized pairs of glasses. This lets you see your room in your peripheral vision around the edges of the headset. If you want more immersion, you can install the included light blockers and block outside light from getting in.
The Meta Quest Pro features inward facing cameras which track your face and mouth expressions. This is utilized in certain social apps, which can have your avatar mimic your facial expressions.
Some of the body parts tracked by the tracking are:
- Eye movement
The Quest Pro features an automatic IPD adjustment between 55 and 75 mm wide. This is much more than the Quest 2’s 58 to 68 mm range.
The software adjusts your IPD in the display automatically to match the wearer by using the inward facing cameras.
Meta Quest Pro Controllers
The Quest Pro features all new Pro Touch controllers. Each controller has 3 cameras on it and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor in it. This allows your controller to track its position and movement in space all on its own, without the use of the headset at all.
The processor in the controller allows for full 360-degree range of motion.
To promote easier charging and more grab-and-go functionality, the Quest Pro comes with its own wireless charging dock. This dock allows you to charge your headset and controllers at one time on your desk.
The Quest Pro features a unique halo strap which fits around your head. Unlike the Quest 2, the strap is fixed to the frame of the headset and cannot be swapped out, like the Quest 2 can be with an elite strap.
The strap does not have a top loop like the Quest 2 does.
The weight of the Meta Quest Pro is 720 grams. This is 50% heavier than the Quest 2.
The entire Quest Pro ecosystem is backwards compatible with the Quest 2. All existing apps and features will work on either headset, so that you aren’t forced to upgrade.
Notably, this was originally marketed by Meta when the Quest 2 was released, comparing it to the Quest 1. Over time, games that took advantage of the 2’s extra power were released, and support for the original Quest was lost.
How Much Does the Meta Quest Pro Cost?
The VR headset and everything else listed below in the box costs $1,499. This is the most expensive headset that Meta has ever released.
In Canada, the Quest Pro costs $2,299.
