Starting with the new viewfinder, it is a “stand-alone” device without cables, redesigned to be 10% smaller and lighter than the first generation to ensure a much smoother VR experience. It has the highest performance and resolution among all Oculus headsets released to date.
And this new viewfinder has a new quick-change LCD screen with a 1832×1920 pixels resolution. But they abandon OLED screen and that is actually very surprising. However, the increased size of the screen supported by a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Platform processor, up to 6GB memory and 256GB internal storage and an improvement in the autonomy of its battery make the Oculus Quest 2 one of the best immersive experiences available.
