On the other side of the field, hardware manufacturers will finally be able to standardize their devices in order to boost VR experience across the industry. The headset is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform and supports inside-out tracking to enable 6 DOF (degrees of freedom) tracking in real time and without additional trackers. Vive Wave is a toolset that lets developers support third-party mobile VR HMDs on HTC's Viveport content distribution system.
The HTC Focus aims to offer something like the best of both current VR worlds - you get a premium experience as with higher end virtual reality headsets, but with the same portability as things like Gear VR that use a phone to eliminate wires.
While the U.S. has been a slow struggle platform-wise for Vive, China has been a different story where the company has already grown its smartphone-based mobile VR brand thanks to a software launcher tied to its Viveport content store. With the Vive Wave SDK, vendors can integrate accessories - be it a Leap Motion, gloves or even outside-in solutions for 6DoF input (and potentially eye-tracking solutions to ease up rendering resources). The VR headset is exclusive for the Chinese market only but its availability and pricing details haven't been announced. HTC said that the no-hassle publishing system would support Viveport for PC VR and mobile VR content.
HTC didn't reveal many new details about the device, but the company confirmed that it would feature a low-latency, high-resolution AMOLED screen. The company said that it handed out 500 priority vouchers to developers who were present at VDC 2017.
Unfortunately, HTC is still keeping some information close to the vest like the unit's price and when it will become available to the public. Graylin only made it clear that there won't be a Daydream version of the Focus yet, as HTC is, ahem, "focusing on the Focus for China" for the remainder of this year.
