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.
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 left-hand 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.
