HTC is planning to release two Vive virtual reality headsets at the upcoming ViveCon 2021 conference on May 11 and May 12, according to measureWhile the original Vive and Vive Pro headsets were more involved in gaming. But the high-end Vive Pro 2 and Vive Focus 3 Business Edition are reportedly aimed at the enterprise sector.
No specs or images of any of the headsets appear, so it’s unclear whether they will be connected headsets that require PC or will have a wireless standalone design to be used with the Oculus Quest 2.
Report from measure Given that both headsets were mentioned in HTC̵7;s filing, they were also briefly listed on European e-commerce site Alzashop, before those store listings were removed.The Vive Focus 3 Business Edition costs 1,474 euros. ($ 1,771) and Vive Pro 2 are priced at € 842 ($ 1,012), according to measureBoth headsets are reported to be released sometime in May.
These headsets are exciting in their own way. But another piece of equipment I hope to see on the ViveCon is the exercise-focused Vive Air. Images leaked two weeks ago showed an interesting standalone VR headset with a breathable fabric design and made HTC say, unfortunately, that was just a concept. But that’s probably just what the company is trying to ignore. Exciting announcements can be said, right?
We’ll find out more information on May 11 at HTC’s VR conference, where the company said it will release a “game-changing VR headset” during the keynote.
