In case you are patiently waiting to search out the new HTC Vive Focus stand-alone VR headset, you may be thrilled to know that preorders will open in China on December 12th, 2017. With any luck indicating that a worldwide release is edging a bit closer. Priced at ¥4,299 for the electric Blue VR headset and ¥3,999 for the finished Almond White focus. The HTC Vive focus consists of world scale monitoring imparting 6 degrees of freedom way to its 9 axis sensor and proximity sensing technology.

The Vive Focus is HTC’s first attempt at a standalone VR HMD. The company first of all partnered with Google to create a Vive-branded headset that might perform on Google’s Daydream VR platform. HTC additionally deliberate to launch the identical headset in China that would operate on its Viveport platform.

Further to pricing and availability, HTC also shed greater light at the inner specifications. We already knew about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset deep within the Vive recognition, and now we’re also informed that there’s a 2,880 x 1,600 single-piece AMOLED show, which is clearly sharper than the Vive’s 2,160 x 1,2 00 made from two AMOLED panels. Whilst each headsets have the identical a hundred and ten-degree field of view, the Vive recognition’ 75 Hz refresh price is a touch slower than the Vive’s 90 Hz. Unluckily, the mechanism of the interior-out tracking module remains a thriller for now. There may be also no discern at the weight but, but we recognize that it felt lighter than its tethered counterpart.
