The virtual reality industry is getting more competitive, with Meta and LG eyeing Apple’s coming product. In a recent report, netizens are becoming aware that Meta is now partnering with a South Korean tech giant. This partnership will aim to produce a worthy competitor for the coming Apple Vision headset.
You might already be aware that Meta owns a virtual reality headset line-up known as the Quest. However, the existing Meta Quest products might not be up to par to compete with the coming Apple virtual reality headset. One fact to point out the gap between the Apple Vision Pro and existing Meta Quest products is their pricing.
Although Apple hasn’t launched this product yet, its possible price is causing an uproar on the internet. The specification, features, performance, and design of the coming Vision Pro contribute to its pricing. For this reason, Meta might have a large void to fill once this product launches, hence the need for the LG partnership.
Here’s what the Meta and LG partnership aims to achieve in the virtual reality industry
The future of Meta’s Quest Pro headsets now lies in the company’s partnership with LG. Together, both companies will work to produce a worthy Apple Vision Pro competitor. Most netizens would be aware of LG’s display business, and this aspect of the tech giant’s business will play a vital role in this partnership.
Well, Meta will not only be relying on the display part of LG’s business for this partnership. According to the available reports, LG would pull together up to four aspects of the business in this partnership. LG Display would handle the headset’s display and LG Electronics would handle the assembly process.
For the battery that would be put to use here, LG Energy and LG Innotek would man that responsibility. Meta on their part might be the specifications, design, and software aspects of things. This shows that more responsibility in the development of this product would shift to LG.
With LG playing a major role in the development of the coming Meta Quest Pro virtual reality headset, fans should expect some changes. One such change would be visible in the pricing of this coming product. For the available reports, this coming product would cost about $2000, setting it as a worthy price competitor to the Vision Pro headsets.
This product is said to launch in 2025 and would be the first entry from the Meta Quest line-up at that price point. Considering that Apple might retail the Vision Pro at $3499, the Meta and LG competition might be a solid option for buyers. More details on these coming products to the virtual reality industry will become available in the coming months.
