HTC's Next VR Headset Could Be For Phones

With Oculus placing bets on both PC and mobile VR with Rift and Gear VR, along with plans for a standalone unit that represents the best of both worlds, many have wondered if HTC might try for a strong mobile VR offering as well. But the VR market is still in its fledgling stages and low-priced alternatives like Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, and the like are stealing market share. The device is created to operate with the HTC U Ultra and may end up supporting other smartphones before being released.

HTC will be showing off an unusual mobile virtual reality headset in the next few months, according to CNET.

Although HTC is keeping the key details under wraps for the time being, Chang said the device will be launching in 2017. "We have learned much from our entrance into the world of virtual reality, and we believe our focused approach to building the ecosystem is the right strategy to enable the whole industry to expand through the creation of compelling content and rich experiences, and that our HTC Vive is at the forefront of that market". Stephanie Llamas, analyst at SuperData Research, said in a statement that the Vive has pulled into the lead in the market so far.

An object moving across the sky was spotted early Tuesday morning in Northern California. She was able to capture it on video, which showed a bright light hovering in the sky.

The company said its new smartphone models launched in the fourth quarter had been well received, as it continued to build the HTC VIVE virtual reality system - including opening the first VIVE-based arcade in Taipei. "We're a VR company, we're going to have something".

Today HTC confirmed that its next virtual reality product would be a mobile headset of sorts. If HTC is cooking up a mobile VR product and you are at all interested in VR, you should probably be excited about this.
