HTC and Google scrap plans for Daydream VR headset

HTC want to remove the impression of standalone headsets that do not offer the complete breadth of experiences that a fully integrated VR headset can offer.

The standalone headset can be used as-is and the company claims that the device will be a first of its kind innovation when it hits the market.

There is also no word on the actual release date or the price.

Immediately after confirming the HTC headset was dead, Bavor teased a Lenovo standalone headset, which was also announced at Google IO.
