HTC Unveiled New VR Headset after Images Leaked

HTC will launch a VR headset within the week and the company unveiled the product recently. A collection of Vive Flow images has made its way online, courtesy of evleaks, before the launch event.

According to Protocol, the Vive Flow is a lightweight headset developed for consumers under the internal name “Hue.” The Bluetooth SIG consortium previously published documents describing Hue as a VR AIO product, which means the device could be a standalone headset that doesn’t need a phone or doesn’t have to be tethered to a PC to work.

HTC wants to position the Vive Flow primarily as a way to consume media, with some access to gaming. Its chip is less powerful than the Oculus Quest 2’s, Protocol says, but it will have six degrees of freedom tracking.

The images leaked online also gave more information about the device, including a dual-hinge system to make sure it fits most people, snap-on face cushion, immersive spatial audio, adjustable lenses and active cooling system. Once you pair your phone with it via Bluetooth, you can use your mobile device as a VR controller and to stream content to VR using Miracast tech.The headset will set you back US$499, which is $200 more than the Quest 2’s launch price
