Though HTC's smartphone business is going down, the Taiwanese giant is growing strong in the Virtual Reality segment with their VIVE products.

"There's a clear need in the VR market for a premium VR experience with high resolution display, integrated audio and the best components available today in a headset", Daniel O'Brien, general manager of HTC's VIVE in the USA market, said in a statement.

Display resolution has been upped to 1440 x 1600 per panel (2880 x 1600 combined) from 1080 x 1200 (2160 x 1200 together) on the standard Vive.

"There's a clear need in the VR market for a premium VR experience with high resolution display, integrated audio and the best components available today in a headset", said O'Brien.


VR enthusiasts are still the only people likely to buy their own headset, even after HTC and Facebook's Oculus dropped prices on their flagship models. It also comes with headphones buillt in, thus users don't require a separate pair of headphones connected to the headset.

Of course, there are a few adapters out there that would allow users to have a wireless experience with the HTC Vive VR headset but because of the interference and low latency, it was not the ideal solution.

Its second front-facing camera allows for exterior depth perception, while dual microphones provide noise cancellation as well as an Alert Mode and Conversation Mode so wearers can get the best of both worlds. This will enable both the VIVE and VIVE Pro VR headsets connect to the computer wireless.

However, HTC did not reveal the pricing and availability of their newest VR offering yet.
