The HTC brand has become a specialist in virtual reality headsets and already has several models to its credit, from version very elaborate with a lighter system. It is obviously preparing a new product whose name and design have started to emerge on the Web before its official presentation which should take place on 14 October .
Helmet HTC Vive Flow could thus be the starting point of an effort to allow the company to inaugurate its own metaverse baptized Viveport Verse , or virtual universe in which we can move and interact in the form of an avatar, and that its competitor Facebook / Oculus sees as the next revolution in virtual reality.
As such, the HTC Vive Flow would not be a powerful device but rather a gateway to this universe, with multimedia capabilities and occasional gaming.
Leaker Evan Blass has since released various renderings of the future HTC Vive Flow headset which shows a relatively light format (to remain comfortable the in time) in the form of large glasses whose computing power would be on board and which could use a smartphone as a pointer.
One of the images reveals the price of 499 dollars and pre-orders that will start on 15 October while marketing is scheduled for early November. We should quickly have confirmation of this information.
