HTC is releasing its PC-powered Vive Cosmos VR headset next month. Originally unveiled earlier this year at CES, the Cosmos is HTC’s latest bid at a mainstream VR headset. The Cosmos does not require external sensors and uses six video sensors for motion tracking. HTC has also upgraded the LCD panels, with a combined 2,880 x 1,700 resolution, a 110-degree field-of-view, and even a 90 Hz refresh rate. HTC’s Vive Cosmos is also the company’s first VR headset to ship with the company’s new Vive Reality System, instead of SteamVR. HTC is opening up pre-orders immediately, and the Cosmos will ship on October 3rd priced at 699 USD (939 CAD).

The Verge, Tom Warren, “HTC’s new Vive Cosmos VR headset arrives on October 3rd for $699.”
