HTC presented it last February. A 5G mobile hotspot that also allows video streaming and serves as a voice assistant. It also has a certain potential on the side of virtual reality ...
Announced for May 31, in a few days then, the accessory could in particular stream virtual reality content to the Vive Focus without the need for another computer. An attractive compromise, but which still seems far away.
Why is this opportunity so interesting? Well, the idea of not needing a computer should appeal to as many people as possible. However, it is also a promise that requires much greater connectivity and cloud infrastructures that have nothing to do with the current ones. The 5G Hub device is therefore launched from May 21 in the United States with pre-orders that are already available.. It's also in a partnership with Sprint at present, an American company. The parallel price is $ 60 for 100 GB of data. The speed will be limited to 2G once the credit is used.
For the moment, HTC promises VR streaming feature coming "soon" but Sprint on his side does not mention it, so it will probably be necessary to be patient. All the more so when the Vive Focus is not available to the general public at the present time. Once it does, HTC hopes to make it the heart of your digital business. 5G would effectively make it possible to stream virtual reality content that is particularly resource-intensive.
