HTC announces Vive Focus standalone VR headset

HTC Vive Focus VR headset

At an event in mainland China, HTC today announced the Vive Focus, its first all-in-one virtual reality headset.

Featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, the device does not require a dedicated PC to operate like HTC’s previous VR headset. In addition, with the help of inside-out positional tracking, the Vive Focus is able to offer room-scale tracking without the use external sensors.

The headset features a somewhat unusual design, at least compared to what we’ve seen from some more recent HMDs like Dell’s Visor mixed reality headset. Included with the Vive Focus is a controller that looks a smaller, more compact version of the company’s previous Vive controller.

HTC did not reveal other important specs like screen resolution, nor did the company say anything about North American availability and pricing.
