Improved battery life
As you can see, the Oculus Quest 2 has been improved in a number of different areas. It has more processing power - meaning it'll work with bigger and better games in future. It also has improved visuals with better lenses that can display a higher pixel count. There's 90Hz refresh rate on offer too (but only if the right games support it).
Quest 2 now has Oculus Link and hand tracking as standard (out of beta).
Quest 2 has the offer of numerous accessories that include all sorts of extra things like headstraps and controllers. It will also include a battery pack as an optional extra for battery longevity.
Quest 2 has had battery performance improvements, but only in the controllers, with the Quest 2 controllers get four times the battery life out of the single AA batteries vs the original Quest.
