HTC has announced that its PC-powered Vive Cosmos VR headset will be made available next month. The company had showcased the Cosmos earlier this year at CES. The device will also be made available in India.

The HTC Vive Cosmos doesn’t require any external sensors like the original Vive and can fully track motion using its controllers. The company has also upgraded the LCD panels built into the headset. HTC Cosmos sports a combined resolution of 2,880×1,700 pixels with a refresh rate of 90Hz and has a 110-degree field-of-view.

With the HTC Vive Cosmos, the company uses inside-out tracking to get an accurate read at the user’s body.

Another feature is that the headset includes a modular faceplate, which allows users to customise the headset over time with extra functionalities.
