HTC has officially revealed the Vive Focus, its all-in-one VR headset. As previously announced, the Vive Focus works on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip and uses inside-out positional tracking. It should be the 1st standalone six-degrees-of-freedom VR headset to see release, tho’ HTC is not saying exactly once it will be available.
The Vive Focus uses a somewhat simple looking three-degrees of an independent controller with a similar trackpad to the larger Vive devices. The headset’s design is uncommon, taking cues from both PlayStation VR and HTC’s own Vive Deluxe Audio Strap, and it comes with a bright shade of blue. HTC hasn’t given lots more away about the Focus’ other specs, like its screen resolution.
