HTC’s announced its new higher-resolution Vive Pro
HTC just announced its new gaming console with higher-resolution displays and built-in headphones. HTC has increased the resolution of the dual-OLED displays to 2880 x 1600 (1400 x 1600 per eye, and 615 ppi), a 78 percent increase from the 2160 x 1200 (1080 x 1200 per eye) resolution in the current Vive. The result is incredible you can read text from far away clearly.
besides the resolution quality, the design also making an impact and addition of headset make it more attractive and comfortable for users.. The original HTC was facing some design and weight issues although company have tried to resolve these issues in this version.
HTC has taken feedback and added a sizing dial at the rear so you can adjust the comfort level accordingly. It now feels like you’re putting on an Oculus Rift headset and adjusting it. The weight and balance also feels better, and the subtle changes make for a better headset. Although the press images make it look really blue, it’s actually a dark navy blue that looks subtle from afar.
If you’re not interested in wires dangling to your PC, HTC is planning to launch a wireless adapter for the original Vive and Vive Pro. It snaps into the rear of the headset and means you won’t need to run a cable to your PC. This puts HTC’s Vive headset closer to Oculus’ Santa Cruz standalone prototype, and the changes make it closer to being as comfortable as the Oculus Rift with the improved tracking that HTC provides. We’ll have a full review of the HTC Vive Pro once it’s available in the next few months, but the early results look promising. All we need to know now is the price, and that could be key.
