HTC VIVE Focus Plus Officially Released: The First Full 6-Degree of Freedom VR


HTC announced the launch of its new virtual reality title Vive Focus Plus, which was announced last month, on April 15th, for $799 abroad. The Vive Focus Plus comes with two motion controllers and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 on board. The autonomy of the glasses is estimated at four hours and is available from mid-April.

The striking blue glasses came with a controller that also served as a remote control to consume media or play basic games. Cost: $599.

HTC has now turned these glasses into a business variant under the name Vive Focus Plus and makes them available outside of the Asian market. The new VR headset has a neutral white color and comes with two motion controllers that support 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF). Thanks to this technology, you no longer have to install external sensors and the two front cameras register the space in which you are and the two controllers.

The two controllers make it much more interesting for the business market. For example, without a PC you could now give training sessions in which your hand movements are translated into the virtual world. The battery life of the VR glasses is four hours, but much depends on the graphic intensity of the applications. Challenging 3D environments have a greater impact on the battery compared to demonstration films.

In addition to the two controllers, the Vive Focus Plus gets better fresnel lenses to reduce the screen effect. The OLED screen has a resolution of 2,880 x 1,600 pixels and a refresh rate of 75 Hz.

HTC is targeting the same market that Microsoft wants to approach with the new HoloLens 2 headset. Companies such as hospitals, schools or architects can get started with the VR glasses without the need for a separate desktop or powerful laptop that provides the computing power.

The 5G cloud VR solution implemented by 5G Hub is also one of the highlights of this VEC. Insta 360 EVO, a new dual-mode 180/360 degree panoramic camera with custom service upgrades adapted to the VIVE Wave platform, with VIVE Focus or any device with VIVE Wave platform, can display VR heads with EVO via Wi-Fi Connected and able to demonstrate the power of VR with the help of future 5G networks.

As i mentioned above, the HTC Vive Focus Plus is available from mid-April and costs $799, The glasses are available in 25 countries. With this new product, HTC responds to Oculus and his Quest, which should also show this year.
