South Korea’s largest wireless carrier SK Telecom Co., stated that it would launch the Oculus Quest 2, Facebook’s VR device, as the company looks to locally expand its presence in the virtual reality market.
SK Telecom would offer the device in South Korea as an extension of its partnership with Facebook. SK Telecom also sold Facebook’s previous Oculus Go last year.
The Oculus Quest 2 can offer approximately 200 virtual reality games and has improved performance via Qualcomm’s XR2 chipset.
Oculus Quest 2 supports games that are developed in association with SK Telecom, such as Crazy World VR. The Oculus Quest 2 can be purchased by customers for $370 (414,000 won) at SK Telecom’s online and retail stores.
SK Telecom has concentrated on developing virtual reality tech since launching the 5G network in April 2019.
SK Telecom’s goal is to reach 10 million Jump service users by the end of 2021.
