  • CES 2016: Updated HTC Vive headset leaked before the convention!

Previously HTC claimed their Vive demo at this year’s CES will make a breakthrough in Virtual Reality.

The HTC Vive headset supposed to make its debut at CES 2016 was just leaked on Reddit.  On Thursday the photos of the Vive headset were posted on Reddit.

The photos revealed the HTC Vive headset and controller has an updated design. The headset pictures were posted by the Reddit user Heaney555. According to Heaney555 the new headset could be either a new development kit or retail-ready hardware. 

The HTC Vive headset along with the Oculus Rift, are expected to take center stage at CES. The Vive headset has been updated with an additional layer of polish, according to Digitaltrends.

There are also some compositional changes and steps taken to keep wires and sensors out of site on the headset. As a result the headset features a smoother faceplate with a small camera.

Although the distinctive sensor divots remain, the sensors have been sealed in the new set. The HTC logo has now been placed at the end of the vertical strap. Previously the logo was in the center of the plat on the headset. 

The HTC controller on the other hand has been refined greatly by the update. The large hexagonal plate at the top of the handle has been replaced.

The plate has been replaced with a smaller oval shaped sensor. Even the touchpad has been redesigned from an embedded circle to a finger-grooved oval shape.

The buttons on the touchpad which are above and below are now covered. The headset by HTC will mark its official debut at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016. The CES is organized by the CTA and will contain 3600 exhibitors this year.
