It doesn't appear HTC has mentioned any pricing at this time, though the company does say that more than 100 developers are now working on content for Focus.
It's unclear, but unlikely that this will play fully blown Vive VR games such as L.A. Noire and the like, but it'll be interesting to see where this kind of tech goes in the near future. Focus uses an open platform called Wave VR and can access the Viveport VR content.
HTC Vive report it is concerned by the continuing fragmentation of the VR market, particularly in China. It's a standalone VR headset that doesn't require a PC or mobile phone. "Vive Wave will assure a higher consistency in the user experience on a variety of mobile VR devices across various price points, making quality VR more accessible to the mass market". The VR headset is exclusive for the Chinese market only but its availability and pricing details haven't been announced. Today, the company announced that the headset would be known as the Vive Focus.
HTC didn't reveal many new details about the device, but the company confirmed that it would feature a low-latency, high-resolution AMOLED screen. HTC are hoping that this open platform will prevent the fragmentation of VR standards, and and as such are integrating the existing Viveport platform into Vive Wave. It's basically Google Daydream, but changed enough to be allowed into China. The representative that we spoke with declined to discuss the full specifications of the hardware and would not say how much the Vive Focus would cost or when it would be available. The Vive Focus is a head-mounted display equipped with 6 degrees-of-freedom, and world-scale tracking.
The HTC Focus aims to offer something like the best of both current VR worlds - you get a premium experience as with higher end virtual reality headsets, but with the same portability as things like Gear VR that use a phone to eliminate wires. The company said that it handed out 500 priority vouchers to developers who were present at VDC 2017.
