Why it matters: HTC's new virtual reality headset launched later this week, and while the company released a trailer, it doesn't show much of the device. And of course the leaked images have been posted online giving the Vive Flow a good look.

As reported by Protocol, HTC has been mocking its unveiling event, which will likely take place on Thursday, for the past few weeks with a "stay tuned" line. The company used several images in its campaign showing that the lightweight headset is ideal for meditation, media consumption and similar activities.

< p> Thanks to documents from the Bluetooth SIG Consortium, we know that the Vive Flow, which uses the internal "Hue" name, is a versatile headset, and most likely a standalone VR headset that doesn't need to be connected to a computer or phone for power.

The protocol reminds us that the Vive Flow will have more powerful chips than those in the Oculus Quest 2, but it has 6 Degrees of tracking freedom making Facebook more versatile than the discontinued Oculus Go.

Thanks to an active Evan Blass leak, we now have photos and information about the new HTC headset. This one has a dual hinge system that fits different head sizes, built-in face pads, surround sound, adjustable lenses, and an active cooling system. Users can also pair it with the phone via Bluetooth and use their phone as a virtual reality controller.

Vive Flow pre-orders begin October 15 and shipments begin early November. It costs $499. It's $200 more expensive than Steam's most popular VR device today, the Oculus Quest 2, and half the price of Valve's benchmark, which is arguably much more powerful.

This week also saw the launch of Magic Leap, which, having raised $500 million, will launch a replacement for its AR headset. The company-focused Magic Leap 2 will arrive next year with several improvements over its predecessor.
