The original HTC Vive was released in April 2016. But after a relatively short period of its existence and not-so-satisfying sales results, the company decided to start over and announce the second HTC Vive device.

Rumors all over the internet originally suggested that HTC has already started working on a second-generation version of its Vive VR headset, codenamed Oasis. Most recently, the company’s spokesperson, Rikard Steiber, recently confirmed these rumors to be true and revealed some additional details about the upcoming device.

According to Stieber, the new HTC Vive device will focus on the “design factor” and “performance” the current headset apparently lacks. The exec also said that the device was set “to evolve”, which means we should expect some hardware improvements, as well.

“This is year one as far as this set of virtual reality experiences go,” Steiber told TechCrunch. “I think with the amount of innovation going on in the space and the amount of players coming into the space, I do think that innovation cycles will be sort of annual.”

Of course, we don’t know anything about the alleged device. Its exact specs are still unknown as well as the list of actual improvements and enhancements compared to the original HTC Vive. As Stieber didn’t confirm the device’s name, it could easily be changed during the development process.

Some sources suggest that HTC will unveil the Oasis at next year’s CES event, or at least reveal some more details. Whatever happens in the next few months, we’re going to make sure to let you know about it.

What do you expect from VR going forward? And what do you think about HTC Vive? Tell us in the comments.
