Oculus Go headset launch slated for May 1

Posted on Monday, March 19 2018 @ 12:16:10 CET by


Word is going around that Facebook will launch its Oculus Go standalone VR headset at its F8 developer conference on May 1. This is not a high-end device, it's more akin to a Samung Gear VR like device without the need for a separate smartphone. The Oculus Go will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC and will be offered in 32GB and 64GB versions.

One key difference versus the Oculus Rift is the lack of positional tracking technology, the VR experience will thus be less immersive. The Go was supposed to be on the market by now, but got delayed due to unknown reasons.
It’s not entirely clear what caused the delay, with possible reasons including concerns about supply shortages. However, Facebook could also have decided to wait with the launch until May to align it more closely with its overall product launch strategy, which has been increasingly focused on f8. In fact, Facebook’s VP of AR and VR Andrew Bosworth tweeted last month that the conference would feature “the biggest AR/VR news from Facebook to date.”
The base price will be $199.
