HTC’s Vive Pro, the forthcoming upgrade to one of the leading high-end virtual reality systems, will ship April 5, and cost $799, the company says.
The Vive Pro features integrated headphones (rather than a jack for third-party audio devices), bringing it in line with Facebook’s Oculus Rift. As well, the new headset has duel-OLED displays, with a resolution of 2880 x 1600 combined, a boost in resolution of 78% over the current-generation Vive.
HTC says it’s also lowering the price of a regular Vive by $100, to $499. A comparable Oculus Rift currently costs $399.
