HTC launches VR headset with significantly reduced weight… “189g, price 499 dollars”

HTC has unveiled a new VR headset ‘Vive Flow’, Cnet and other foreign media reported on the 14th (local time).

Unlike existing VR headsets, this product is small in size and light in weight, greatly improving the wearing comfort. The weight is 189g, which is significantly lighter than the 500g of the existing VR headset.

In addition, it is worn like glasses rather than wrapped around the head with a band or string, and can be folded and stored in a carrying case like sunglasses. The inside of the headset and a small cooling fan are installed to exhaust the hot air to the outside, improving the wearing comfort.

Two cameras are mounted on a 32-megapixel display with a refresh rate of 75Hz. Like other HTC VR headsets, it works on the HTC Viveport UI and is available in about 50 apps early on. It is equipped with a Qualcomm XR1 chip, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and stereo speakers with spatial sound support.

In order to reduce weight, this product does not have a battery, so power must be supplied through the USB-C port, and unlike standalone VR headsets such as Oculus Quest 2 and Vive Focus 3, it must be used in conjunction with a smartphone.
