The new HTC Vive Flow is on the borderline between a VR headset and connected glasses of the future. It’s up to you to choose what you do with it.
This October 14, HTC unveiled to the general public a product that will make a big splash in the field of virtual reality. Indeed, the brand has lifted the veil on its HTC Vive Flow, its very first VR headset in glasses format, which promises optimal immersion and comfort. Watch the replay of the HTV Vive Flow announcement here to see it in action.
A small revolution
To differentiate its product from that of competitors, HTC has bet big on the look of its new device. The HTC Vive Flow proudly sports a more compact shape, and lighter than other VR headsets, including those of the brand. Indeed, HTC wanted to press on an important point that was sorely lacking in the sector: mobility.
Thanks to its format, the HTC Vive Flow can be taken anywhere, for moments of relaxation and entertainment whenever you want. To do this, the headset can be connected to any 5G Android smartphone and supports Vive Synch technology that allows you to find other users in realistic virtual spaces.
In addition, its featherweight has everything to seduce. The HTC Vive Flow weighs only 189g, the weight of a smartphone. On the branches, speakers are integrated that provide 3D spatial sound. Finally, at the specs level, we find a 100 ° field of view, a resolution of 3.2 K and a refresh rate of 75 Hz.
Breaking free from gaming to attract a new audience
With an ideology of “better living” at the heart of its communication, HTC hopes to democratize once and for all the use of virtual reality among all audiences. For this, HTC also provides its users with a redesigned Viveport subscription for relaxation activities.
For € 5.99 per month, you can have access to many applications “ covering the themes of well-being, cerebral gymnastics, productivity, games, as well as exclusive content ».
Pricing and availability
The HTV Vive Flow is already available for pre-order on the HTC website at a price of € 549. It will finally be available for purchase in November, on the HTC website and in stores.
