HTC has revealed the next phase in VR at CES 2018 with the HTC Vive Pro. The new device includes dual-OLED displays at a resolution of 2880 x 1600 combined, a 78% increase in resolution over the current Vive HMD. The new headset features integrated, high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier, a new head strap that was built with enhanced ergonomics and comfort, including a sizing dial for a more balanced headset that decreases weight on the front of the headset. It also includes dual microphones with active noise cancellation and dual front-facing cameras.
