HTC VIVE - the VR Headsets Launch You Should Not Miss in 2021

Yet another pair of remarkable devices has appeared on the VR headsets horizon. HTC has been amongst the tech companies making headlines in the past few months. This had to do primarily with the teasers and assumptions revolving around the new HTC VR headsets, anticipated to be officially announced during the VIVECON 2021 on May 11th and 12th. During the VIVECON 2021 HTC has finally announced the two new headsets planned to be launched this year – the VIVE Focus 3 and VIVE Pro 2.

HTC VIVE FOCUS 3

HTC VIVE Focus 3, communicated as the “new era of business VR” is promised to be shipped on June 27th. The new enterprise aimed device will come with a 5K resolution and is expected to deliver the sharpest viewing experience, smooth visual achieved through the 90Hz refresh rate, up to 120° field of view, as well as the 2,448 x 2,448 per eye resolution, ensuring enhanced visual fidelity. Operated on Snapdragon XR2, the VR headset will have the dual-driver speakers enabling for a 3D immersive spatial sound and quad on-board camera tracking.

DANIEL O’BRIEN HTC VIVE Global Head of Enterprise:

“So when it came to thinking about what’s next, we took in all of these data points. We looked at the diverse businesses using Focus Plus and we set about becoming the number one full business-solution provider. We honed in on some areas to deliver the best results, the easiest execution and the fastest and most compliant deployment.”

HTC VIVE PRO 2

The second equally exciting device, announced during the VIVECON was HTC VIVE Pro 2, which is available starting from June 3rd. The high-performance PC-VR headset comes with a remastered 5K display, 120° field of view, 120Hz refresh rate, 2,448 x 2,448 pixels per eye resolution, adjustable interpupillary distance (IPD) along with the 3d spatial sound. The new device is designed to be used for both enterprise and consumers, compatible with a variety of accessories, from VIVE controllers to Base station and VIVE trackers.

SHEN YE HTC VIVE Global Head of Hardware Products:

“Another key cornerstone for VIVE Pro Series is in the consumer market, those who demand the very best from their PC gaming setup are also looking for the best in VR. We’ve always wanted people to have an amazing VR experience, and that means delivering a unique balance between exceptional optics, a wide field of view, supreme comfort, and of course, precise tracking. We constantly listen to the needs of both our consumers and business customers, and innovate around it.”

With every new VR headset, we are coming closer to a more mass integration of immersive technology in both business and our everyday lives. This, without doubt, allows to expand the horizons for many industries in remote learning, upskilling and reskilling, remote collaboration and data processing, while enhancing the future for individuals worldwide.
