Meta's Quest 2 VR is getting some competition in the form of the Pico 4, a lightweight VR headset the company is calling «its best yet.» The lighter, thinner wireless headset is sporting good horsepower and has already nabbed an exclusive game release from Ubisoft.

Unfortunately, US VR enthusiasts might have to wait a bit to get their hands on one of these headsets. The Pico 4(opens in new tab) is powered by a 2.84Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 CPU and sports a 4K resolution display with a refresh rate up to 90Hz on a pair of 2.56 LCD screens.

It comes with a pair of controllers and will launch with what they are calling a «diverse and inclusive» library of games and software.

Bytedance, the company that owns TikTok, acquired Pico last year and is poised to take a big slice of the VR headset market in Europe and Asia away from Meta.
