The HTC Vive Focus Doesn't Need A PC Or Mobile To Work

The HTC Vive Focus Doesn't Need A PC Or Mobile To Work

With 12 third-party hardware partners already supporting the platform, and over 35 developers already creating content for the platform, Wave's future is looking bright... at least in China. Therefore it seems likely that those companies intent to integrate Vive Wave into their hardware.

Earlier this year, HTC was forced to drop the price of their Vive VR system from $799 to $599 after Oculus dramatically sliced the price of its similarly capable VR system from $798 to $399. According to Graylin, China's standalone VR market's revenue share grew from 5 percent to a whopping 24 percent in Q3 alone, while mobile VR still has 50 percent revenue share in the same region, so he believes that both markets will appeal to developers across the world.

While today marked the official unveiling of the Vive Focus, HTC is still mum on availability and pricing. "As the VR industry leader in China, it is our duty to help reduce market fragmentation and provide content developers with more ways to make money".

"As the world continues to become more mobile and connected, we've been working closely with Vive through our HMD Accelerator Program and advanced VR software features to enable immersive virtual reality experiences without the need for wires or PCs", said Hugo Swart, senior director, product management, Qualcomm Technologies Inc.

The HTC Vive Focus features a high-resolution AMOLED screen alongside a Snapdragon 835 VR Platform. While Oculus executives have outright noted that they are not particularly interested in making money off of hardware sales, there aren't many other options for HTC which has done a poor job of becoming a platform company in the United States despite being first-to-market.

Predictably, the Vive Focus headset is fully compatible with the Vive Wave open platform and Viveport content distribution system.

But that's not to say that developers can't add 6DoF hand input to the Focus. If you were holding out for that standalone Vive Google Daydream headset, meanwhile, there's bad news - HTC and Google have cancelled their plans to bring it to the US.

The HTC Vive Focus's release date hasn't been stated, but developers can apply for a dev kit.
