Oculus is announcing their new Oculus Rift S VR headset, developed in collaboration with Lenovo.

This headset improves upon the original Rift headset design by jumping from 1080×1200 to 1280×1440 per eye.

This now matches the smartphone-only Oculus Go headset. Except the Rift S uses superior OLED vs the Go’s LCD panel. Furthermore, it also brings the Oculus Quest’s Inside-Out tracking capabilities. Albeit, using five cameras instead of four.

When Will the Oculus Rift S VR Headset Arrive?

The $399 VR headset is due for launch sometime in spring 2019. This is slightly pricier than the original Rift for $349. Although it will ship with updated Oculus Touch controllers, which are the same ones found on the Quest.
