The Vive Focus will make premium high-definition 6DoF VR experiences accessible to the mass market

BEIJING, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HTC Corporation ("HTC"), a pioneer in innovative, smart mobile and virtual reality (VR) technologies, today announced that its highly-anticipated premium standalone VR headset for the China market, the VIVE FOCUS(TM), will be available for pre-order at 12:00 a.m. on December 12(th) (Beijing time) in most of China's major online stores (i.e. Vive.com, JD.com, Tmall.com) and offline sales channels (i.e. Gome, Suning). Initial customer deliveries are expected in January 2018 to China buyers.

"Two years ago, we delivered the first room-scale PC VR solution to the world; today, we're extremely excited to be, once again, the first to bring 6DoF 'world-scale' standalone VR in the form of the Vive Focus to the VR market," said Alvin Wang Graylin, China Regional President of Vive, HTC. "The combination of advanced capabilities, usability and comfort in an affordable package is unmatched in the current market. This signals the beginning of VR's entry into the mass consumer space in 2018."

The Vive Focus delivers a compelling experience through inside-out 6-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) world-scale tracking, coupled with a 3K 75Hz high-definition AMOLED screen, 110-degree field of view, adjustable IPD control and built-in audio. With unsurpassed clarity and low latency, the Vive Focus will allow users to enjoy the wonders of VR in a portable form factor that can easily be taken anywhere. The Vive Focus is powered by the Qualcomm(®) Snapdragon(TM) 835 chipset and utilizes the advanced features of the VIVE WAVE(TM) VR open platform, including the rich content library on VIVEPORT(TM). The Vive Focus also comes with the ability to link to other devices via a USB Type-C connector, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, while its built-in microSD card slot allows storage expansion of up to 2TB.

Without the need to be attached to a PC or a phone, the Vive Focus is designed to deliver unparalleled convenience and exceptional comfort. It can be put on and removed in just a couple of seconds and immediately turns on/off by sensing the user's head. Its water-resistant padding and ergonomically balanced design allow for all-day wear. It's even designed to be glasses-friendly, so there's no need to remove one's eyewear before use. The Vive Focus gives users the freedom to wander anywhere at anytime.

A few scenarios were showcased during the launch event, including family usage in the home, a multi-user classroom, cross-site collaborative work, and in-flight entertainment. Dozens of unique content were demonstrated to the attendees of the launch event, while the press was given the opportunity for extensive hands-on testing. The Vive Focus clearly demonstrated its potential to serve the needs of both personal and professional users. It represents a new class of devices which consumers will soon interact with on a daily basis. Thanks to the robust, dynamic and global Viveport developer community and the ease of developing on the Vive Wave VR open platform, much more content is expected by consumer ship date.

Available in two signature colors, namely Almond White (3,999 RMB, tax included) and the limited edition Electric Blue (4,299 RMB, tax included), each Vive Focus also comes with a matching Bluetooth handheld controller.
