Excitement is building around the potential launch of Vision Pro. A new rumor from a Chinese news source claims the headset could launch on January 27 in the United States.
The leak comes from Wall Street Insights, a site with a limited track record on Apple rumors. It states the Vision Pro will debut this coming Saturday based on exclusive sourced information.
However, a Saturday product release seems highly unlikely for Apple. The tech giant traditionally stages launches on weekdays to maximize coverage. Fridays are most common.
This timing discrepancy suggests the Chinese report may instead refer to a January 27 launch in China. For the US, that would translate to a Friday, January 26 unveiling – much more plausible.
Noted Apple analyst Mark Gurman also hinted that a late January media event in the US followed by a February retail release makes sense based on current plans.
In any case, excitement is clearly building for the Vision Pro’s announcement. Apple itself has only guided that the advanced headset will launch “early” 2024.
The Vision Pro is expected to feature dual ultra-high resolution displays, hand tracking, and advanced augmented reality capabilities. Apple aims to make the device mainstream after focusing initial sales on developers.
Pricing remains a major question, with speculation ranging from $2,000 to $3,000. That places the Vision Pro in an exclusive luxury territory for now.
While January 27 appears unrealistic, Apple fans may only have to wait days or weeks until the Vision Pro finally sees the light of day. The product represents Apple’s first big leap into the future of computing since the original iPhone.
