Earlier immediately Dutch publication LetsGoDigital revealed an utility made by HTC final week to each the European Union Mental Property Workplace (EUIPO) and the US Patent and Trademark Workplace (USPTO) for the title. The request was made by Grünecker Patent und Rechtsanwälte PartG MBB, the identical company that managed the unique HTC Vive utility in Europe again in 2015.
The HTC standalone headset will function on the Google Daydream platform, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835. The hardware can also be confirmed to function a 3DOF movement controller identical to the one used for the Google Daydream View.
