HTC has registered a new trademark titled Vive Focus in the US and Europe. The trademark is expected to be used for the upcoming standalone virtual reality headset that was announced earlier this year.


The new virtual reality headset is a standalone headset that will not require a smartphone or computer to power its virtual reality experience. The trademark filing was discovered by website Letsgodigital.

According to HTC, the headset will feature an integated screen and will run on Google's Daydream virtual reality platform. As such it is likely that the headset runs a heavily modified Android system that only allows access to Google Daydream.

The new headset is said to be simplistic, lightweight and portable, allowing people to carry it around with ease. Because the headset runs its own operating system, it will not be required to be connected to a smartphone or PC to power its visuals.

The headset also comes with Google's WorldSense, a new inside-out positional tracking technology that allows virtual reality applications and content to detect the user's movement in 3D space.

The retail version of the headset will be bundled with Google's Daydream controller, which features a touchpad and two buttons to allow users to interact with content.

The new wireless virtual reality headset is expected to launch later this year.
