HP Teases ‘Next Gen’ VR Headset In Partnership With Valve And Microsoft


HP is teasing a new VR headset which is a followup to its Reverb virtual reality headset made in collaboration with Microsoft and Valve. This announcement comes with the release of Half-Life:Alyx, the year’s most anticipated VR game from Valve.

Although the company leaves a limited detail about its new headset, HP’s website calls its new headset “a more immersive, comfortable, and compatible experience” than the Reverb, and an email from the company calls it a “no-compromise VR headset.”

HP’s Reverb VR headset was launched in collaboration with Microsoft at a price tag of $599. Since HP calls its next-gen VR “a more immersive, comfortable, and compatible experience” than the Reverb suggesting that they are not competing with the cheapest VR devices, like the $399 Oculus Rift S. But it might not cost as much like Valve’s $999 Index. 

As for its physical appearance, the next-gen VR headset from HP looks similar to its previous generation VR. It is seen sporting two black spots that imply the use of Windows Mixed Reality tracking cameras, rather than SteamVR-style external tracking beacons.

As of now, there are no details over the launch date of the new VR headset. However, we can expect to see a delay in the launch of the new VR headset due to the coronavirus pandemics. As soon as we get more details over it, we will update you with the same.
