HTC first entered the Virtual Reality (VR) sphere back in 2015 at Mobile World Congress with the introduction of their Vive headset. Now, the company is at CES 2018 with the announcement of the Vive Pro, which upgrades the original model in several different areas.
First, the Vive Pro features a pair of higher-resolution OLED screens, coming in at a resolution of 2880 x 1600, vs 1080 x 1200 on the original. The updated headset also comes with built-in headphones, which was something that came attached to the first model. Furthermore, the new headphones feature integrated 3D audio.
There is a small change in the design of the Vive Pro, which features a lighter build, better ergonomics and comfort, greater overall balance, and a couple other cosmetic changes to make the VR experience much more enjoyable.
Thankfully, the Vive Pro will still work with the original headset’s base stations for room-scale motion tracking. Additionally, everything that works with the original Vive will continue to work with the updated Pro model.
As usual, there is no information as to how much the Vive Pro will cost or when it will be available. What do you think of the Vive Pro? Is it worthy of the upgrade? Let us know in the comments down below, or on any of our social media pages.
