In a recent interview with CNET, HTC CFO Chia-lin Chang said that the Taiwanese mobile giant will be releasing a new mobile VR headset this year that is "not a phone slapped onto a headset" like we see with Samsung's GearVR, or Google's Daydream View headsets.

 

Chang teased that HTC's upcoming mobile VR headset would be similar to the high-end Vive headset - and that has me intrigued.
