Facebook is readying to announce a new VR headset, and while doing so seems to have accidentally leaked a duo of its promotional videos online.

That new headset is the Oculus Quest 2, a follow up to its earlier standalone VR headset the Oculus Quest. Both the headset and its accompanying controllers have received a visual overhaul and, as noted in the video, the new headset also brings built-in support for controller-less hand-tracking.

One video outlines the device as a streamlined, smaller, and lighter take on the Quest that offers 50 percent more pixels than its predecessor.

Under the hood, the unannounced headset is powered by the VR and AR-centric Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 platform, a display that’s “almost 4K,” 6GB of RAM, and as much as 256 GB of built-in storage. 

Given the timing, it’s likely the device is one of the announcements planned for Facebook Connect, the company’s recently rebranded dev conference, on September 16.
