The video shows Cardenas removing the device from its packaging, revealing a black headset and controller with what looks like an updated design. While the headset has three cameras on its front, the controllers feature a design that drops the hollowed-out loop design that houses the sensors for something more solid.
The packaging has the “Meta Quest Pro” label stamped in the top-left corner and a graphic showing the VR headset and controllers. Cardenas also provided a closeup of the label stuck to the box, which says “Not for resale – engineering sample,” and told Srdtf News that the person who stayed in the room has since claimed the headsets.
The images and video surfaced exactly one month ahead of Meta’s Connect event on October 11th, which lines up with the timeline CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed for when the company will reveal its next VR headset. We expect to find out all about Project Cambria / the “Quest Pro” and its other plans for the metaverse, AR, and VR.

In July, Bloomberg reported developer Steve Moser found references to the “Oculus Pro” in Meta’s code, so it’s possible that this is the name Meta has settled on for the upcoming device. Meta didn’t immediately respond to Srdtf News’s request for comment.
Update September 11th, 10:18PM ET: Updated to add pictures from the video.
