Be it called Project Cambria, Meta Quest Pro, or another thing, it’s likely to cost as a high-end device.

In late July, Meta announced that the Quest 2’s base configuration (the main one with 128GB of storage) would leap from the $299 MSRP to $399 and that the more costly model with 256GB would jump from $399 to $499.
