Images have leaked for what could be the next Oculus Quest headset, and it might launch in September.

The controllers might have changed, too. The images hint that Oculus might use input similar to the Touch hardware that came with the Rift CV1 — a good thing for veterans who believe the Quest and Rift S controllers were steps backward.
This future Quest also wouldn’t have the velcro side straps from before. It’s not certain how the mechanism works, but it could involve a spring system that saves you from having to adjust the fit. There’s no triangular strap opening to help the headset stay in place, either, supporting talk that the new Quest is considerably lighter.
There are still some unknowns. It’s not clear what would power the new Quest, although faster refresh rates would dictate a newer platform like Qualcomm’s XR2. If these images are accurate, though, the new version of Oculus’ stand-alone headset could have a few welcome upgrades, albeit with a few tradeoffs.
