Oculus Quest Hits FCC on Its Way to Spring 2019 Launch
As we head into 2019, there’s a growing sense of bated breath within the VR industry as the Oculus Quest launch draws near. Today the headset popped up in FCC listings, seemingly indicating that things are on track for the Spring 2019 release.
After showing off prototypes in years prior, Oculus formally announced Quest in September, saying that the high-end standalone headset would launch in Spring 2019 priced at $400. Now filings for the headset from Facebook have appeared at the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The FCC is tasked with certifying products with electromagnetic emissions to be safe and compatible with regulations. Products utilizing radio, WiFi, infrared, etc. need certification before they can be distributed for sale. Certification by the FCC marks one step closer to the launch of consumer electronics product.
