HTC teased a better resolution for its Vive VR headset, and while they were correct, the newly announced Vive Pro appears to have some extra perks as well.

HTC also announced the Vive Wireless Adaptor, which uses Intel's WiGig wireless docking tech, as well as improvements to Viveport VR. Apart from that, the new HTC Vive Pro will bare two OLED displays, which makes it similar to the Vive Focus from the same company.

HTC says the Vive Pro also offers dual microphones with active noise cancellation and dual front-facing cameras. The Vive Pro brings built-in audio and wireless options, and, most importantly, an nearly 80 percent boost in screen resolution.

HTC said Vive Pro will be available to existing customers in Q1 2018, and a developer version will be available after.

VR enthusiasts are still the only people likely to buy their own headset, even after HTC and Facebook's Oculus dropped prices on their flagship models. It's a separate accessory to enable fully wireless VR, with interference-free 60GHz communication. The Wireless Adapter will work with the original Vive and Vive Pro and will be available this summer.


"Wireless VR has been on almost every VR user's wish list since the technology was unveiled", said Frank Soqui, general manager of the Virtual Reality Group at Intel, in a statement.

New Hardware Raises the Bar for High-End VR Market, While All-New Viveport VR and Vive Video Dramatically Improves the way You Browse, Discover and Acquire VR Content.

Considered the largest upgrade to the Viveport platform since launch, Viveport VR will take the traditional 2D catalog and show it off will immersive and interactive previews.

Lastly, HTC said it upgraded its native VR video player, Vive Video.

HTC's upgraded Vive headset is a much-needed update for the line. The Vive Pro's headstrap includes a sizing dial so the headset is a lot more balanced, and it hopefully won't feel too top heavy at the front. On the current model, the headphones were only available as an add on.
