When we all previously done a good glance at the Vive Focus standalone VR headset with 6DoF “world-scale” tracking, HTC had yet to show its comprehensive specifications or price, however nearly a month later, we lastly possess some responses. Firstly, from December 12th, the device will likely be accessible for pre-ordering in China starting from 3,999 yuan or about $600, with shipping starting in January the coming year. The base price is not far off from the original PC-tethered Vive that is coming in at $599 before tax in the US (in China it will cost you 5,488 yuan which means $830). Even better, that price relates to a brand new white version that, in my experience, is way better looking versus original “electric blue” — that’s now a finite version pricing 4,299 yuan (about $650).htc vive focus release date
Along with pricing and availability, HTC also drop more light on the internal specs. People knew regarding the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset deep inside the Vive Focus, and today we are also told that there is a 2,880 x 1,600 single-piece AMOLED display, which is generally sharper than the Vive’s 2,160 x 1,200 containing 2 AMOLED panels.
HTC’s VR attempts in China ought to be somewhat useful to Lenovo’s future Daydream Standalone VR device, which the rest of the world can certainly still look ahead to.
