Summary

  • A more accessible HTC virtual reality headset
  • An HTC headset different from the competition

Asked by our colleagues from the American magazine "CNet", Chia-Ling Chang, the sales director of the Taiwanese group said that HTC was working on a new model of mobile virtual reality headset. HTC therefore intends to continue the adventure of virtual reality with new products, despite the vertiginous losses encountered by the Taiwanese group, in particular due to the sluggish sales of the company's smartphones.



A more accessible HTC virtual reality headset

The HTC Vive headset is currently the best available virtual reality device. Of very high quality, the helmet suffers from a major problem, its price. Not only, it is necessary to pay about 800 euros to acquire it but it is also necessary to have behind an overpowered computer which adds to the bill. In order to focus on a larger audience, HTC has therefore decided to soon launch a cheaper and mobile product.

According to Chia-Ling Chang: “”. HTC's sales manager adds "".

An HTC headset different from the competition

Can say about his next smartphone-oriented headset, the sales director of HTC, however, clarified that “  "Before adding" ". Without giving further details, Chia-Ching Chang however indicated that the product would be released in the coming months.

The mystery surrounding HTC's future mobile headset is therefore great. Several hypotheses have already been put forward. Some evoke a headset with its own screens but using the computing power of future smartphones from the manufacturer to work, like the LG 360 VR.


Others evoke a headset with its own processor and screens. Everything would be calculated by the on-board equipment without the need for a smartphone and a memory card would allow applications or games to be imported onto the headset.



We will therefore have to wait before knowing more about this next HTC headset and the surprise it has in store. However, it is highly likely that the Taiwanese manufacturer is once again providing a high quality product which would be more affordable this time.
