The resolution of your Oculus Quest 2 isn’t as high as you imagine, but that’s not a problem

Cheon Hong Kim, a Meta display engineer, revealed various information regarding the Meta Quest 2

The Quest 2 has a 1920 x 1832 resolution display for each eye, however due to the lenses, we don’t see that resolution (via UploadVR).

For starters, because the lenses are circular and the screen is rectangular, the corners are cut off – and Meta has literally sliced the corners off the displays to save space.

Furthermore, as you switch between the lenses’ three IPD settings – which alters how far apart they are – the portion of the screen that can be viewed changes.
