Of course, on paper spec sheets don’t inform the entire story – we now have Pico 4 hands-on impressions right here and we’ll be posting a full evaluation when it ships.
Weight & Form Factor
Pico 4 is the primary totally standalone headset with pancake lenses to launch outdoors China. Pancake lenses assist smaller panels with a shorter hole to the lenses, and thus a slimmer & lighter design.
But this isn’t the one method Pico diminished the burden of its visor. Like its predecessor, Pico 4’s battery is housed within the rear of the strap. Quest 2’s battery is within the visor, which provides to the front-heavy feeling.
Whereas Meta’s Quest 2 with fresnel lenses and the battery within the entrance weighs 470 grams with out straps, Pico 4 with out straps is nearly 40% lighter at 295 grams. We’re itemizing the burden of the visors somewhat than the entire headsets as that’s what you’ll truly really feel in opposition to your face.
Resolution & Field Of View
Quest 2 makes use of a single 3664×1920 LCD panel. Headsets with a single panel can’t make the most of the entire pixels as a result of there’s an unused hole between the lenses. And since Quest 2 has lens separation adjustment, Meta needed to go away much more unused area. That means the precise decision supplied to every eye is notably lower than 1832×1920.
Pico 4 makes use of two LCD panels, one for every lens, with a decision of 2160×2160 every.
Pico says Pico 4’s area of view is 105° diagonal. Meta doesn’t present an official area of view determine – and totally different firms are inclined to measure in another way anyhow – so we’ll provide you with a comparability of the actual area of view in our evaluation.
Each particular person has a barely totally different distance between their eyes – their interpupillary distance (IPD). If a headset’s lenses aren’t carefully aligned along with your eyes, the picture will be blurry and it could actually even trigger eye pressure.
Quest 2 solely provides three preset lens separation distances: 58mm, 63mm, and 68mm. You transfer the lenses between these three positions manually along with your hand.
Pico 4’s lenses are stepless and motorized, supporting interpupillary distances (IPDs) of 62-72mm. You set your IPD within the interface inside VR, and the lenses transfer themselves to match.
Quest 2 makes use of its nook monitoring cameras for passthrough, fed right into a reconstruction algorithm. Its passthrough mode was initially solely supposed for room setup – these cameras have a low angular decision and don’t output shade.
Pico 4 has a devoted 5K RGB digital camera within the heart for shade passthrough. In our hands-on we famous there’s nonetheless distortion on close by objects, and it doesn’t look anyplace close to as clear as actual life. But it’s nonetheless a noticeable enchancment over the grainy black & white of Quest 2.
Chip & RAM
Pico 4 and Quest 2 are powered by the identical Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor as different main present standalone headsets. XR2 is a variant of the Snapdragon 865 smartphone chip first shipped in early 2020.
Quest 2 pairs this with 6GB of RAM whereas Pico 4 pairs it with 8GB.
Both Pico 4 and Quest 2 use their 4 nook fisheye cameras to trace infrared (IR) LEDs beneath plastic geometry on their controllers.
But whereas Quest 2’s controllers home these IR LEDs in a hoop in entrance of your hand, Pico 4’s controllers have them in an arc over your fingers. Pico factors out this implies your fingers can get nearer collectively with out bashing the controllers collectively, for actions similar to cocking a pistol or pouring water right into a cup.
Pico additionally says its new controllers have a “HyperSense broadband motor” for extra reasonable haptic suggestions. We’ll be testing this in our evaluation.
