The Meta Quest 2 is Meta's latest all-in-one virtual reality headset and the most popular VR headset on sale today. The latest generation of the headset packs a display with 1832X1920 pixels per eye and comes in a package that is much cleaner and even a little bit lighter than the first generation. The new Touch Controls are much more comfortable than the first generation and add more functionality to your hands.

The Quest 2 also comes with Qualcomm's Snapdragon XR2 processor and 6GB of RAM, a big boost over the first generation that results in a much more responsive experience while playing games and hopping around the user interface. It also supports 60, 70, and 90 Hz refresh rates for smooth gaming.
