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.
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
