CES in Las Vegas has just begun, and here comes the first important VR announcement. The company HTC has revealed a revised and upgraded version of its virtual reality device called Vive Pro.

There are some differences from the primary HTC Vive model.

For example, Vive Pro has a more significant display resolution and built-in headphones. The resolution of Vive Pro is 2880×1600; it’s 78% higher than the current resolution of Vive, which is 2160×1200.

Besides, the Vive Pro is equipped with dual microphones and a dual front camera. It was necessary for the performance improvements of apps using augmented reality.

HTC Vive Pro 1.0 and 2.0 support SteamVR tracking, so the room tracking is available on the device.

The headset has a blue colored design. Its new front cameras remind eyes. In general, the present model slightly differs from the original Vive. The date and price are promised to be released shortly.

The basic Vive model will be on sale during 2018, and the Vive Pro model sales are expected to start this quarter.

By the way, recently introduced wireless adapter Vive will become available at the end of this year.
