The company has been one of the pioneering companies when it comes to VR.
Taiwanese VR giant HTC has debuted a standalone spin-off to the HTC Vive virtual reality headset at ChinaJoy 2017. Think of it as HTC's rival to Samsung's Gear VR, but you don't need a phone or a PC for HTC's to work.
HTC has finally revealed its first standalone virtual reality headset at an event in Shanghai, China. It seems, though, that HTC is targeting only the Chinese market. Or, in the case of Vive, no need to tether the headset to an expensive desktop computer, which is rather restrictive in terms of motion as well as budget. The search giant introduced its Daydream VR headset sometime past year alongside its flagship smartphones namely, Google Pixel and Pixel XL. It's likely that despite many upcoming standalone VR headsets not being as powerful as current high-end VR offerings, they'll reach a much wider audience due to their cheaper price tags and standalone functionality.
This essentially means the Vive Standalone can perform inside-out positional tracking - putting it in close ranks with more sophisticated VR headsets the likes of HTC's own flagship Vive and the Oculus Rift.
Speaking about the launch, Alvin W. Graylin, China Regional President at HTC's Vive division, said: "China is the leading mobile market in the world today, and has the momentum to lead the global VR market as well".
The difference between the eastern VR headset and the Western VR headset is that China version will be powered by the Viveport content platform while the eastern market will get the Android powered model.
The company is quiet about the price so it's not known how much the standalone headset is cost, but it's likely going to be lower than the Vive's $800 price tag.
