ByteDance has unveiled the Pico 4, the fourth generation of the Pico VR headsets. The Pico 4 will be a direct competitor to the long-rumored and recently leaked Meta Quest Pro (Project Cambria), also released next month. The device will only be available in Europe and Asia, not the US.

Pico 4 will cost €430 for the 128GB model and €500 for the upgraded 256GB model. Pico’s latest headset will feature upgraded specs across the board with a 72HZ/90HZ refresh rate, 4.7MP per eye resolution, powered by the snapdragon XR2 processor; the device will also have 8GB of RAM.

But how do these specifications stack up to its competitors? Well, pretty good. The current Oculus Quest 2 features only 6GB of RAM and a 3.5 MP resolution. The Pico 4 also outshines its competitors with its new pancake lens, making immersion seamless.

Besides its attractive technical specifications, the Pico 4 will likely be much cheaper than the upgraded version of the Oculus headsets, the Oculus Pro releasing next month, making Pico an attractive offering for buyers.

Nevertheless, there will surely be heated competition between Pico, Meta, and other VR companies who want to throw their hat into the ring over the next year. For more information about Pico, the metaverse, and the latest developments in VR, make sure to follow the Metaverse Insider.
