HTC announces new Vive Flow VR glasses
HTC has just officially announced a new VR device, this time not as VR as we have seen before. In fact, HTC has redesigned its look to look more modern and body. Small, slim, different from other common VR.
HTC’s new VR is part of the Vive line, fully known as the Vive Flow VR. Process as well as to make other commands instead. The new VR weighs in at just 189 grams and comes with built-in speakers, as well as a function that captures hot air from the user’s eyes from the VR to help users feel good. Even if wearing it for a long time.
Both of its internal screens have a resolution of 1600 x 1600 pixels, can be displayed in 100 degrees (FOV) and have a Refresh Rate of 75Hz. An interesting point is that the VR above comes with a battery, but not for full operation, just leave it for use when the user changes the power source to not turn off.
However, for the power to supply VR above, HTC has designed an external battery that is promised to last up to 4 to 5 hours. Vive Flow VR uses a Qualcomm XR1 chip along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, as well as support for more than 100 applications. Among the programs that HTC introduced are Meditation, Socializing, Video Streaming and some simple games.
The VR device can be paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth for general control, and it can also be connected via a 5GHz Wi-Fi connection so that apps on Android phones can mirror into VR. Please note that Vive Flow is not supported with iOS, so only Android is the way to use it, while HTC has also placed an order on their website with a price of 2 million riel or $ 499.
