The Pico 4 or Pico Phoenix are two names for the same high-end headset. It will have a passthrough RGB camera and face/eye tracking to facilitate MR. A feature of the headset rumored to exist is automated IPD, which would allow the headset to tailor its hardware to the individual user’s interpupillary distance (inter-pupillary distance). After all that, the headset will run on Android Q and some unannounced Qualcomm CPU.
