Oculus Go VR Headset Could Be Here This May

Facebook’s standalone virtual reality headset Oculus Go will launch in early May, according to a Variety report.

Quoting a few sources close to Facebook, Variety states that the Oculus Go will be present at the Facebook F8 Developer Conference. This makes sense as a Facebook rep teased back in February that the F8 will bring the “biggest AR/VR news” to date. #realitymagic

The $200 Oculus Go was announced last October and drew the attention of those looking to get a budget VR headset. Unlike Samsung’s Gear VR, the Oculus Go is a standalone VR headset that isn’t just compatible with Samsung phones, but with other Android smartphones and iPhones as well. It can also be used without a smartphone due to its huge, 1000 app portfolio. 

While it has the same field-of-view as Oculus Rift, the Oculus Go won’t come with inside-out tracking or completely tracked motion. However, it does come with a 2560 x 1440 screen with spatial audio, meaning you won’t need to wear headphones.

Here are the complete specs:

    • 2,560 x 1,440px resolution LC screen
    • three degrees of head tracking freedom (3DOF)
    • built-in integrated spatial audio and 3.5 mm headphone jack
    • comes with Oculus Touch controller
    • rumored to come with a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset
