HTC Announces Snapdragon 835-Based VIVE VR Headset for Chinese Market

Standalone HTC Vive Headset Announced

HTC's next headset isn't going to be a Vive II, but will instead be a standalone headset within the Vive family. First, they are disconnected from a PC and don't require attachment to a desktop for processing or display output.

What does the standalone HTC Vive headset look like? The company has also been testing a Viveport launcher using VR through smartphones.

Near the end of the video, after the ambulance arrives, Bieber speaks with the police, although it's not clear what he's saying. It is then claimed that he left in a auto "leased by Kourtney Kardashian", who was having dinner with her sister, Kim, nearby.

The catch? It's only coming out in China.

"China is the leading mobile market in the world today, and has the momentum to lead the global VR market as well", said Alvin Graylin, China regional president of Vive at HTC, in a statement.

Here, we discuss all the latest standalone HTC Vive VR headset release date rumours, along with the latest design and feature news. Back at Google I/O, Google, HTC, and Lenovo all announced plans to release standalone Daydream headsets that could be used without a smartphone. The headset, because it makes use of Qualcomm's all-in-one reference design, will feature inside-out tracking, thanks to depth-sensing cameras on-board.

1st Ford Carrier Commissioning Set for Saturday; Navy Adm. John Richardson Comments
Ford enlisted in the Navy following the attack on Pearl Harbor and was commissioned as an officer in the Naval Reserve in 1942. Several dignitaries will also be in attendance, including Chief of Naval Operations Adm.

The Vive Standalone will be powered by Snapdragon 835 mobile VR platform. If you've been holding off on taking the VR plunge due to the cost of entry, there's ample reason to watch HTC's efforts to produce an affordable standalone headset, in China and elsewhere. Needless to say, the VR headset will neither require a PC or a smartphone and is completely wireless. If true, this could make for an interesting battle between Oculus and HTC in the Chinese VR market, though admittedly, HTC already has a huge presence in China as it stands. And as the latest reports have come in, the Taiwan-based tech giant is all set to launch an exclusive edition of their VR headset for the Chinese consumers. The recent similar announcement of the HTC Vive HDM project is no accident as HTC wants to get the developers around its project.
