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