HTC Vive Standalone VR Headset With Snapdragon 835 SoC Unveiled
Jul 28, 2017, 00:15
It's not clear if the standalone Vive VR headset will make it to European or USA markets however, as the HTC press announcement only makes reference to a Chinese launch. In fact, we know that a USA -bound and HTC-made headset in will run Daydream and use Google'sWorldSense tracking in favor of Viveport and Qualcomm's setup.
We're also still waiting for the specs, although we do have some dark images showing an apparently light and plain headset. However it's now only coming to Chinese markets. The search giant introduced its Daydream VR headset sometime previous year alongside its flagship smartphones namely, Google Pixel and Pixel XL.
Could this be the future of VR? But there's also a middle ground between higher-end setups like the HTC Vive and entry-level headsets like Daydream View.
According to a report from AnandTech, HTC is, "making it very clear that this headset has no bearing or impact on their previously announced standalone Daydream headset".
Yes, it'll remove the need for an expensive PC or decent smartphone to run, but that lack of processing oomph means an overall experience that won't touch HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
One of the biggest highlights of the new premium standalone VR headset is that it will be powered by the QualcommSnapdragon 835 SoC.To recall, Qualcomm had launched its Snapdragon 835 SoC-powered reference VR headset in February this year, alongside a hardware accelerator programme for OEMs. What we do know is that it'll be completely wireless and won't require any kind of base stations like the PC-powered HTC Vive, meaning it should be fairly simplistic in design. Moreover, buyers will have to invest separately in a high-end PC to make the Vive work.
"China is the leading mobile market in the world today, and has the momentum to lead the global VR market as well", said Alvin W. Graylin, HTC's China regional president for Vive, adding that partnering with Qualcomm will help make the device powerful yet affordable.
Introduced at the ChinaJoy Expo in Shanghai, It looks practically the same as HTC's upcoming standalone Daydream headset, but because Google's VR standard is blocked from release in China it has to use different technology instead.
