Meta appears to have confirmed the name of its next virtual reality headset: the Quest 3S. In a Quest Store listing spotted by UploadVR, Meta lists the Quest 3S as a supported device.

At this time of writing, you can see the Quest 3S listed alongside the Quest 3, Quest, Pro, and Quest 2 in the listing for the upcoming Alo Moves XR app. Other upcoming titles, such as Miracle Pool and Rival Stars Horse Racing: VR Edition, also include the Quest 3S. The Verge reached out to Meta with a request for comment but didn’t immediately hear back.

The Quest 3S could be a more affordable version of the Quest 3 headset the company launched in October 2023, but there’s a lot unknown about the new device. In March, a leaked image shared by @ZGFTECH showed what could be the cheaper Quest 3 with no passthrough cameras. However, a more recent leak seems to contradict this, claiming it comes with two 4MP RGB passthrough cameras.

Last year, The Verge’s Alex Heath reported on an internal presentation made by Mark Rabkin, Meta’s vice president of VR, that referenced a cheaper Quest headset on the company’s product roadmap. During the presentation, Rabkin mentioned launching a more “accessible” headset codenamed Ventura. At the time, Rabkin said the goal was to “pack the biggest punch we can at the most attractive price point in the VR consumer market.”
