HTC chose HTC’s unveiling of HTC Vive Focus, the company’s response to Oculus Go, in its standalone virtual reality systems that combine state-of-the-art technologies and do not need to connect to a computer or smartphone to function.
Having decided to take a serious look at this area after Vibe’s release a few years ago, HTC has introduced a new wireless system that does not require external sensors since it has the ability to locate the actual user’s location in the three-dimensional space. A similar system also features Mixed Reality systems that have been introduced in recent months for Microsoft Windows 10.
The HTC Vive Focus incorporates AMOLED screens as well as the Snapdragon 835, the chipset we meet in top-of-the-line smartphones with an eight-core processor. The company has released a first teaser video in which we can see the device’s separate design without any further information beyond the support of the Vive Wave VR platform. In the future, price and date of circulation will be announced, estimated sometime in 2018.
