HTC dropped a big hint recently that the company has new VR gear to show off at CES 2019, and we may be getting a first-hand look during a special press event that’s taking place Monday.
The event is scheduled to take place on Monday, January 7th at 1 PM PST (local time here) here at CES in Las Vegas. We’ll feet on the ground at the event and will be liveblogging it as it goes. See the liveblog stream below:
HTC tweeted earlier in the week that “[t]he cases are packed with some new gear we can’t wait to unbox for you.” The picture attached to the tweet shows a number of boxes; one in the lower right corner prominently features a blurred out label.
While we’re none the wiser what’s in the box, it could be related to the ‘Vive Cosmos’ headset trademark the company filed a few months ago, which is supposed to be the name of a VR headset.
At CES 2018, HTC held a similar press event that saw the unveiling of Vive Pro, the pricey prosumer headset that introduced a number of critical refinements including higher resolution displays, better ergonomics, and SteamVR 2.0 tracking.
We’ll be attending, so tune in for our liveblog, which will be posted below a few minutes before the clock strikes 1PM PST.
