The XR Elite has a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 SoC, 12GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 110-degree diagonal field of view, a 90Hz refresh rate, and 2K pixels per eye. The headset is notable for having a glasses mode that essentially makes the headset lighter. The weight is reduced by about 240 grams by removing the strap and battery and replacing them with a pair of plastic pieces that lay over your ears.
Numerous games and pieces of software that HTC previously made available for use with its previous generation of VR headsets are all supported by the new XR Elite. Additionally, the device’s mixed reality feature enables full-colour passthrough video. The Vive XR Elite is designed to be a productivity tool and passive media device in a lighter package, not only for gaming.
The HTC Vive XR Elite headset weighs only 625 grams, making it significantly less than the Quest Pro, which weighs 722 grams but heavier than the Meta Quest 2. For enhanced situational awareness, it has mixed reality functionality with colour cameras and a depth sensor. Originally, Meta intended to make this available on the Quest Pro too.
Price & Availability
The Vive XR Elite costs $1,099 and comes with two motion controllers, one battery and the headset itself in the full package. Pre-orders are up for the headset on HTC’s official website, and global shipping will begin by late February 2023.
