This was published on a Dutch site and then quickly taken down. People think they posted it too early and got in trouble.

1440x1600 per eye
New valve lenses
Improved headstrap & comfort
Integrated audio
Lighthouse 2.0
Knuckles Controllers
Wireless add-on option later on.

No word on price.

This looks so bulky. They are calling this a 1.5 version, but Vive 2.0

The VR podcast I listen to has 4 hosts. 3 of the sold their Vives when they caught wind of the Pro model coming out Q1. They wanted to sell before the market was flooded with used ones.

Turns out HTC is ONLY releasing the headset Q1, with the full bundle coming Q3ish. LOL at the hosts selling all their stuff and screwing themselves. They had heard $349 for just the headset, which is actually way less than I would have guessed.
