  • Meta’s “internal road map” of VR hardware shows it plans to release four headsets by 2024, codenamed Cambria, Funston, Stinson, and Cardiff.
  • Project Cambria is rumored to cost $800, though a Meta spokesperson said it would cost “significantly higher.”
  • Cambria will run on Android hardware but will be marketed as a work device.
  • Cambria’s follow-up, Funston, will arrive in 2024. And two cheaper Quest devices will ship in 2023 and 2024.

Meta has plans to release four virtual reality headsets by 2024, two lower-end Quest models and two pro headsets designed to be a “laptop for the face,” according to a source for The Information (subscription required). 

Meta may very well push these dates back, but it’s clear the company wants to flood the market with Quest devices before competing products arrive.
