HTC is going to present the new Vive Flow virtual reality headset tomorrow. Thanks to an insider @evleaks there was an opportunity to take a look at this new product before its official presentation. Although the information provided does not reveal the specific technical characteristics of the device, it is safe to say that the new product will be autonomous. That is, it does not require a computer to work.
The new Vive Flow VR headset will be able to work with smartphones. The device will connect to mobile gadgets via Bluetooth.
In addition, the smartphone can be used as a controller to control the Vive Flow interface. Support for Miracast technology is not excluded, with the help of which it will be possible to broadcast content to the headset from a smartphone. Also, apparently, there will be a wired connection via a USB Type-C cable.
According to the portal EngadgetThe Vive Flow will have six degrees of freedom, but none of the images shown above clarifies this point.
It looks like the device also comes with dual cameras and a pair of integrated speakers.
We can note the use of an unusual headband and the presence of an active cooling system. This may indicate the presence of a fairly powerful processor inside.
In addition, the headset will suggest focal length settings.
According to the leak, HTC will begin accepting pre-orders for the Vive Flow headset from October 15th. The device is scheduled to start shipping in November. The headset will cost $ 500.
The set includes seven VR apps, a two-month subscription to Infinity Vista and a carrying case for the headset.
