The Re Vive packs in over 70 sensors and provides a 360-degree tracking to allow wearers to walk around the room and get a feeling that they’re immersed in the virtual world. It also offers 90Hz refresh rate and high-quality audio. The company says that the headset is pretty light. “It’s also really light, so you can wear it for a long time without feeling weighed down,” said HTC’s Jeff Gattis. It will be available with a pair of wireless controllers made by the company which will allow users to manipulate with objects, an example: shooting weapons through hand tracking.

Unlike the Samsung VR, and Google Carboard that require a smartphone to function, HTC’s Re Vive doesn’t possess such requirements. It can directly be plugged into a PC from where a user can access all the content. HTC is touting the Re Vive as a gaming headset, but the company has also partnered with HBO, Lionsgate, Google for video content. As for gaming, the company has partnered with Vertigo Games, Bossa, Dovetail Games, Wemo Labs, and Owlchemy. Also Read - HTC to launch a flagship smartphone after 2 years in July 2020
