HTC intros Vive Focus standalone VR headset in China


HTC has finally introduced Vive Focus, its first standalone VR headset for the China market. Being a standalone device, there is no need to attach the headset to a PC, or slide a smartphone inside it, because all the sensors, processing power and display are built into the headset for an untethered VR experience.

The Vive Focus VR headset provides 'world-scale' tracking through inside-out 6-degree-of-freedon tracking (6DoF). There's also built-in water-repellent padding, instant-on support, and the device comes with a single three-degrees-of-freedom motion controller.

The headset sports high-resolution AMOLED screen to deliver immersive VR experience, with low latency and unmatched clarity. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 VR Platform and utilizes the Vive Wave VR open platform, which includes rich library of VR content available on the Viveport.

Unfortunately, HTC did not reveal the pricing and availability details, but the standalone VR headset's availability is likely to be limited to China. Having said that, in other markets, the Vive Focus will be based on Google's Daydream VR platform, instead of Wave VR platform.
