The HTC Vive Focus is a standalone virtual reality headset, which means you don’t need to plug it into a PC or game console and it doesn’t depend on a phone to work. Everything is built into the headset itself.
The headset features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 2880 x 1600 pixel AMOLED display with a 110 degree field of view and built-in proximity and 9-axis sensors for position tracking with 6 degrees of freedom.
While HTC had initially panned to launch a standalone VR headset that utilized Google’s Daydream virtual reality platform, the company switched gears when it introduced the Vive Focus as a device that will use the company’s own Vive Wave platform.
Users will be able to download apps and games from the Viveport store.
