HTC officially announced the Vive Focus, Standalone VR Glasses. The new headset works with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip and uses inside tracking.

The Vive Focus uses a somewhat simple, three-degree external controller with similar to the larger Vive trackpad devices. The design of the glasses is unusual, resembling HTC’s PlayStation VR and Vive Deluxe Audio Strap.

They also have a bright blue shade. HTC does not give much information about their other specifications, such as screen resolution, for example.

HTC announced its plans to launch Vive Focus in China without being linked to details about a possible date or the cost of the headset.  “China is a huge potential market and we have no plans to take Vive Wave outside of it at this time.”

“China is the fastest growing VR market in the world and where mobile VR is most likely to gain mass adoption first,” Pao told Engadget. “It’s also a marker where fragmentation has occurred due to the lack of a leader open platform. Vive Wave is intended to address both these issues, and it’s clear from today’s cross-industry support that the market as a whole is in agreement.”

If you have an interest in them, there are bad news – HTC has no plans to release the product for the US market.
