Looks like the start of Vive Pro pre-orders isn't the only VR news that HTC has to share this week.
HTC said today that its standalone Vive Focus headset will be sold in "international markets later this year." That's about all that HTC had to say about the rollout, though, so it's unclear exactly which markets will get the Vive Focus and when they'll get it.
The HTC Vive Focus is a standalone virtual reality headset, meaning that unlike the Vive and Vive Pro, you don't need a powerful PC to use it. The headset includes a 2880x1600 AMOLED display and Snapdragon 835 processor, a microSD slot, built-in microphones and speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It features QuickCharge 3.0 charging, and HTC says that you can get up to 3 hours of active use on a single charge.
HTC currently only sells the Vive Focus in China, where it's priced at ¥3,999 ($632 USD) for the Almond White model and ¥4,299 ($680 USD) for the Electric Blue version.
