According to German VR publications VRNerds, HTC is set to debut a new "Vive Pro", a refresh of their VR headset featuring an improved resolution of 2,880 × 1,600 (compared to the 2,180 × 1,200 of the original) bringing 76% more pixels into the mix with a solid 3K resolution. This was also part of the HTC Vive Pro presentation which will make use of this new feature when four base stations are connected. But with a barrage of Windows Mixed Reality headsets offering higher resolution for cheaper, HTC needed to step up its hardware game.
The highlight of the new system is the improved combined 2880 by 1600 resolution from its dual-OLED displays, which the company boasts is a 78 percent increase over the original Vive.
Another improvement over the OG Vive is the integration of a dual front facing camera, dual microphones and headphones with a built-on amplifier.
The Vive Pro will be available this quarter as a headset upgrade to existing customers and as a standalone headset to all consumers.
The Vive Wireless Adaptor will feature Intel's WiGig technology to make wireless VR a reality. The Wireless Adapter will work with the original Vive and Vive Pro and will be available this summer.
"Wireless VR has been on almost every VR user's wishlist since the technology was unveiled", said Intel GM Frank Soqui.
