HTC planned to reveal its new VR headset on Thursday, but a leaker posted about it first.
Evan Blass Strikes Again
Evan Bass is an American blogger and editor. He’s also a prolific leaker. His Twitter account @evleaks has more than 448K followers and features leaks of Sony, Motorola, LG, and Asus products.
His newest “victim”, however, is the Vive Flow virtual reality headset.

In a Twitter thread, Blass posted a series of promotional images. Judging by them, Vive Flow will feature eyeglass-like temples, that will go over the ears. It also seems to have a tether connection to another device.
The device will also feature a dual-hinge fit system, spatial audio, and an active cooling system.
The design is pretty similar to Project Proton, HTC’s mixed-reality headset. The company first announced it in February last year. HTC CEO Yves Maitre explained that the Proton was the first step to creating a headset that looked more like a pair of glasses.
According to Blass’ leaks, the Vive Flow will be available for pre-orders the day after the official announcement. Shipments will start in early November, with the set price being $499.
In addition, those, who preorder, get the chance to enjoy seven free VR content, 2 months of Infinity Visa, and a free carrying case.
HTC’s planned event will be streamed live at Vive.com and in VR on Thursday, at 8 AM PT.
