HTC has unveiled the look of its next Vive virtual reality headset, with the Cosmos to have a flip-up design, six cameras, detachable headphones, a faceplate and a vented front. Billed as a premium PC VR system, the Cosmos, first teased at CES 2019 in Las Vegas in January, will have “striking graphics [and] lifelike sound,” HTC said Friday.

The Cosmos will have a “pixel-packed” display that minimizes the screen-door effect of using VR systems, HTC said. The company also touted its new tracking system.

“With wide and accurate tracking, gesture controls and a six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) headset and controller setup, Vive Cosmos promises a deeply engaging VR experience,” HTC said.

The system can be used straight out of the box with minimal setup and also features a more comfortable headset with soft, light and breathable material, HTC said. 

The company also unveiled new Vive controllers that it called gamer friendly, versatile and practical.
