Wireless HTC Vive Focus Details

SlashGear has details on the HTC Vive Focus, a new version of the VR headset that eliminates the wires without the need for a mobile phone (thanks [H]ardOCP). This video shows us what this looks like, though there's no word yet on when to expect a release. Here's a bit on the plan:

The HTC Vive Focus features a high-resolution AMOLED screen alongside a Snapdragon 835 VR Platform. HTC boasts that its model is the first of its kind to feature an inside-out 6-degree-of-freedom tracking tech otherwise known as 6DoF. Focus uses an open platform called Wave VR and can access the Viveport VR content.

The HTC Focus aims to offer something like the best of both current VR worlds ó you get a premium experience as with higher end virtual reality headsets, but with the same portability as things like Gear VR that use a phone to eliminate wires. By eliminating both the PC and the phone requirements, users arenít dependent on any other device for their VR experiences.

How is this message spreading Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt? That is actually what your comment is doing. Also Gear VR is not nearly the same experience as VR units that do head tracking and controller tracking. Different experience and different markets. Vive also has the most software support out of all the VR experiences. PSVR has apparently sold more than all the others combined... I guess I am confused as to why Gear VR is such a great thing to aspire to. Especially compared to modern VR with low latency and full head tracking.

HTC's pr department is in full FUD mode. Don't throw your money away. Daydream is flailing because of lose performance requirements and expensive hardware. Gear VR is doing MUCH better because its using high end phones with top notch displays, and is partnered with the oculus store. There are also tools available for Oculus developers to port games down to the Gear VR.

HTC should have really partnered with Gear VR, no matter how difficult that might have been. Samsung and HTC may be rivals, but I think they would take all the help they can get with getting Gear VR even further off the ground.
