The Pico Neo 3 VR headset is apparently out now in China.

https://www.roadtovr.com/pico-neo-3-pro-eye-release-date-price

 

Specs:

- Snapdragon XR2 (same as Quest 2)

- 1832 x 1920 per eye (same as Quest 2)

- 4 camera inside out tracking

- optical tracking 6DOF controllers (the Pico Neo 2 used magnetic tracking)

- Wifi 6

- 90Hz curved screen

- 5300mAh battery (Quest 2 is 3640mAh)

- display port for native PC vr (THIS is how to do a hybrid!)

- Nvidia CloudXR for wifi streaming of OpenXR apps.

- Pico Link for wifi streaming of SteamVR apps.

- Hand tracking

 

In fact most of it (specs, look, etc) seem extremely similar to a Quest 2.

 

In China (where Facebook is banned so the Quest 2 isn't much use), the Pico Neo 3 is a consumer headset. Models range from $390us to $470us.

 

In the rest of the world, the Pico Neo 3 will be an enterprise headset. The Pico Neo 3 Pro at $699us and Pico Neo 3 Pro Eye (with Tobii eye tracking) at $899us will be available soon for businesses.

Very interesting interview (translated from Chinese) with Pico's CEO about how the tracking system (head and controllers) has evolved. Lots of interesting details in there. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https://pu6wskf3ezpag6pcq2gan44ioa-ac4c6men2g...

One thing to remember: while the Pico Neo 3 Pro is $699us, comparing it to the $399us Quest 2 isn't really fair. It's actually competing with the $799us (plus $180us per year to renew support) Quest 2 Business.
