A Pro-tier headset may be called either the Pico 4 or Pico Phoenix. It will include face and eye tracking, as well as a passthrough RGB camera that enables mixed reality experiences. The headset is rumored to have automatic IPD – meaning it can automatically adjust its hardware for the wearer’s IPD (inter-pupillary distance). Finally, the headset will be powered by Android Q and an unidentified Qualcomm processor.
