This year, 2016, was a great year for technology, especially for virtual reality. Many companies already released their virtual reality glasses and headsets including Samsung, Sony, HTC, and Microsoft. Some of the products were great, some were too expensive, all in all, they are now on the market.
One of the products that sold really well this year was HTC Vive. Maybe this is the reason why the company decided to release HTC Vive 2.0 in 2017. There is no official statement saying when they are going to release it. It is believed that HTC might launch HTC Vive 2.0 at CES next year.
Because the first HTC Vive was so good, people expect the best from the company for their next products. This is why their new device needs to have some great features if they want the same results.
One of the features that are most expected is a wireless connection. HTC Vive could only be used if it was connected via USB to a PC of another device. The headset could also be connected to another special HTC device which was wireless and costs more than $200. This is why people are expected to see an HTC Vive 2.0 that has a wireless connection.
Another interesting feature that HTC might add to its new product is the 4K screens. Gamers, the main audience for virtual reality, have been complaining about the fact that Vive doesn’t have 4K. The new product is expected to have these 4K screens.
Room-scale VR is the next feature that should be added to the HTC Vive 2.0. The current device has room-scale VR but it is not as good as the one expected. Maybe the new product will have a better version.
In order for HTC Vive 2.0 to be better than the current device the company needs to add some of the features that people have been mentioning. They also need to fix some problems that users have been complaining about. The launch of the new product is likely to happen next year in January at CES 2017. This device needs to be better than the previous one if the company wants to keep their place on the VR tech market.
