  • CES 2018: Wireless VR and Haptics To Push VR Forward

It'll feature two OLED displays with a resolution of 2880 x 1600 - very similar to the Vive Focus standalone headset - an increase of 78 percent from the original HTC Vive's 2160 x 1200.

This premium resolution enhances immersion for VR enthusiasts, and the improved clarity means text, graphics and overall experience all come into sharper view. The Vive Pro will go on sale later this year, most likely at a premium but we're yet to find out an actual price. "Wireless VR has been on almost every VR user's wish list since the technology was unveiled", Frank Soqui, GM of the virtual reality group at Intel, said in a statement.

While the rival Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR headsets have both been trimmed significantly at various points over the last six months, the Vive has largely remained at its significantly higher RRP.

The headset also interestingly now features dual-front-facing cameras accessible to developers, who can presumably use them for inside-out tracking and mixed reality applications.

HTC is teasing a Vive-related announcement for January 8, the day of its CES press conference. We will update as we get more details.

The Vive Wireless Adaptor will ship worldwide in the third quarter of this year. Featuring Intel's WiGig technology, the unit operates in what HTC calls an "interference-free" 60Ghz band for better performance. There's also new 3D audio which will work with the new and original Vive base stations. While VR, which transports you to a digital world through a special headset, has attracted heavy hitters like Facebook, Google and Samsung, consumers have been slow to embrace the technology. It will be a part of the now existing Viveport Subscription model. HTC revealed the HTC Vive Pro which comes with higher resolutions and Vive Pro Audio.
