HTC Vive he continues with his campaign to create expectation for the launch of” something big in small package ” next 14 october. After a series of images in which a cylinder and a circular device were placed next to people performing tasks such as meditation, reading a book, eating popcorn or working, in their last tweet they teach what looks like glasses accompanied by the slogan Go with the Fow.
Among the images shown by HTC Vive these last days and the latest patents filed by the company, they have resurrected rumors that what they will present in 9 days will be a new device based on the Proton compact viewfinder prototype.
For some it will be an AIO (All in One) viewer, a wireless VR device intended for the domestic market. For others, some smart glasses with AR capabilities to consume audiovisual content, something more similar to the Nreal Air or Nreal Light than to the Ray-Ban Stories of Facebook.
What is neither a patent nor a rumor is that HTC has filed in the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) register. UU. a new device 2Q7Y100 with wireless features, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11 ac), and with a lithium-ion battery.
Patents, rumors, speculations… as in the month of March HTC has again generated interest to know what they will teach next week. Although it should not be forgotten that the high expectations generated then ended up turning into disappointment, when the result was the presentation of the facial tracking module Face Tracker and the third generation of Vive Trackers.
The same happened months later with the presentation of its new VR viewers, HTC Vive Pro 2 and Focus 3, which did not revolutionize the market or take the industry to another level as announced by the president of HTC Vive in China, Alvin Wang Graylin, at the end of last year.
