Time and again it has been reported that the company is working on a follow-up to the Vive headset, which will be two years old in February. Apparently, the successor to the Vive headset is codenamed ‘Oasis’. Rumours of the Vive 2 were first leaked in December 2016, a mere few days ahead of CES 2017. HTC has remained silence about its plans to launch the Vive 2 in 2018.
The Vive headset has been HTC’s most talked-about product in recent years. The headset has got critical acclaim from the press and consumers alike. Back in August last year, HTC announced a $200 (or approx Rs 12,655) price cut on the Vive headset, bringing the price down to $599 (or approx Rs 37,901). At the time of launch, HTC Vive cost a hefty $799 (or approx Rs 50,556). HTC is selling its Vive VR headset in India at a price of Rs 76,990.
