We have heard about the coming Apple mixed reality AR/VR headset for a long time, but as the release gets closer and closer, new details are emerging and this latest report by Bloomberg reveals that the gadget will come with the new M2 processor in the base version and will have a whopping 16 GB of RAM.
The alleged M2 chip/16GB RAM combination also clearly shows that this device will be expensive. A comparably spec’d Macbook Air would cost north of $1,400, and given the all-new components used in the mixed-reality headset, we can clearly see any of those rumored over $2,000 price points are well justified.
Now’s also a good time to say that Apple’s plan for AR is just getting started with this cool and expensive mixed reality headset, but the company is also expected to follow suit with a second device that looks a lot like regular glasses with less powerful components and features. AR capabilities only (no VR headset).
