Is HTC planning mobile VR headset?


VR Bites is trying to get that question answered for a while now. During our demo with HTC Vive, we were teased with a smile. Today HTC makes us even more curious with a response on Facebook.

On a post about the HTC One A9, HTC responded to the message: “Sweet phone, wish it could do VR” with an remarkable answer: “Maybe it will be capable of magic with subsequent updates.” With that answer HTC gives price that something is being developed for VR. It doesn’t tell if it is just software or a headset, let’s hope it is a headset.

It would be a logical step for HTC to release a mobile headset for their flagship the HTC One A9. HTC’s competitors Oculus and Samsung developed the Gear VR together. HTC could compete to both of them by releasing a mobile headset for themselves.

No better pairing this holiday season than the HTC One A9 and Android Marshmallow. #BeBrilliant

Robbert As some of you may know, I have been suffering from the aftermath of a traffic accident, a severe case of COVID-19, and a transient ischemic attack (TIA). These events have taken a toll on my physical and mental well-being, and I can no longer keep up with the demands of running a VR website and channel. I want to thank you all for your support and feedback over the years. You have been an amazing community and I have enjoyed sharing my passion for VR and gaming with you. I hope you will continue to enjoy VR and explore its possibilities. I will leave the website and channel online for now, so you can still access the content I have created. However, I will not be posting any new blogs, videos, or news. I hope you understand and respect my choice.
