HTC already released the Vive Focus stand-alone VR headset in China last year. Recently, the company announced to release the Vive Focus in the US later this year. The new listing on Amazon could mean that a release is sooner than expected.
The price of the Vive Focus for the US has not been announced yet. It will need to be cheaper than it sells for in China. The Chinese price is around $650 for the Vive Focus. The comparable Lenovo Mirage Solo is priced at onl $399.
The stand-alone virtual reality headset market is going to be off to a flying start. Lenovo and Oculus will release stand-alone VR headsets. Lenovo will ship the Lenovo Mirage Solo in May and you can pre-order the Lenovo Mirage Solo with advanced head tracking now.
Facebook's Oculus is expected to release the Oculus Go in Spring as well. The Tracker app also offers in-stock alerts for the Oculus Go, which is listed on Amazon.
The HTC Vive Focus offers enhanced comfort for extended use, easy on-off capabilities, and is the first commercial standalone device to deliver inside-out 6-degree-of-freedom tracking (6DoF) which Vive calls “world-scale”.
