A couple of images of HTC Vive Dev Kit 2 have appeared online; showing some notable changes made to the headset and the controllers.
Although there is no confirmation regarding the authenticity of the leaked images, however, if the images are believed to be authentic; the headset appears to has a front-mounted camera. Contrary to the popular belief, the camera is not for augmented-reality application and is just meant to be for external object detection.
You can see the leaked HTC Vive Dev Kit 2 images in the gallery attached below and share your thoughts with us:
HTC Vive Dev Kit 2 is scheduled to be shown at CES early next year in January 2016. Originally, the developers had plans to launch the product around the new year, but later it was confirmed that the Consumer Version #1 will not release until April 2016 — the exact release date is still not known as of this instant!
In addition to this, also note that there is no concrete information as to how the headset will cost or when the pre-orders will begin, but those of you who are hoping to get their hands on HTC Vive Dev Kit 2 before April 2016, the company has announced that they will begin the new year by shipping around 7,000 units.
We will be starting the new year by making an additional 7,000 units available to developers, followed by commercial availability in April 2016. We are incredibly excited about the future and look forward to sharing more information as we move forward towards launch.
