The company previously posted a photo showing a small part of a black device in a teaser ad for Vivecon, which at least confirms that we can expect a new hardware reveal. Back in April, a leak from the World Design Guide awards showed a fitness-focused VR headset called the Vive Air with four tracking cameras like the Oculus Quest. A spokesperson told us it was just a concept, but that its “design language has elements and inspirations you’ll see elsewhere in [the company’s] products.”
If HTC truly does launch the Vive Focus 3 Business Edition, it will most likely be positioned as a much more expensive enterprise-level Oculus Quest competitor. We tested its predecessor, the Vive Focus Plus, in 2019, and found its controllers much improved over the original model’s. Meanwhile, we found the first Vive Pro comfortable to wear and powerful enough to run a variety of VR titles without hiccups. We’ll found out for sure whether HTC is unveiling new VR headsets at Vivecon, which will be held virtually on May 11th and 12th.
