As we have earlier reported that HTC is going to launch an upgraded version of the HTC Vive VR headset at the CES 2018, HTC has announced the HTC Vive Pro VR headset along with the HTC Vive Wireless Adapter.

As expected, HTC Vive Pro comes with OLED screens with 2880 x 1600 pixels resolution that provides a pixel density of 615 pixels per inch, compared to 448 PPI of HTC Vive display. It features the integrated 3D audio and a new headstrap is included with a sizing dial that redistributes the weight throughout the headset instead of just front of the headset.

The headphones are attached to the side like wings and there are dual front-facing cameras and two microphones provided too in HTC Vive Pro.

The good thing is that the Vive Pro works perfectly with the existing HTC VR systems, including the original base station and SteamVR tracking 1.0 and onwards. On the Vive Pro, users will be able to pair up to four base stations to create a walkable area of 100 meters square.

HTC Vive Pro will be available for purchase as a standalone headset and there will be no tracking equipment included, this quarter. HTC will also launch a package complete with base station 2.0 and controllers later this year. HTC also confirmed that it will keep selling the original Vive in 2018 along with the Vive Pro for more advanced users.


Along with the Vive Pro, HTC also announced a wireless adapter that works with both Vive and Vive Pro VR headsets. It uses Intel's WiGig technology to make the headsets wireless and it is expected to be available this summer.

HTC has not revealed the price of the HTC Vive Pro and the wireless adapter yet and will provide information regarding it along with the availability information later.
