(Pocket-lint) – In August, HTC filed a trademark for a head-mounted display called “Vive Flow”. Now the company is teasing an event that will take place on October 14 to reveal more.
Over the past few days, HTC has released a number of cryptic images hinting at the reveal. These include relaxing lifestyle photos including a person sitting on a sofa with popcorn, a lady sitting in a yoga pose, and a person reading a book in bed.
The event, called “Go with the Flow”, is expected to take place in a few days and will certainly be interesting to watch. After all, on the one hand, we have hints of a new head-mounted display in the branded app, but we also have HTC showing off a cartridge that couldn’t fit a full-fledged VR headset.
Alvin Wang Graylin, the Chinese president of HTC Vive also tweeted that the company will announce “big news in a small package” and that the device can “access from virtual reality, PC, Mac or phone” .

Does that mean we’re finally getting a standalone headset from HTC to compete with the Oculus Quest 2? We got a glimpse of that potential in April with the Vive Air, but it was later said that it was only a concept device and that it would not actually launch.
The Vive Focus 3 is the closest we’ve got to this offering so far, but in classic HTC fashion, it’s an expensive headset primarily aimed at business users. Are things about to change with a more consumer-centric device? And is this headset actually the AR glasses company’s first attempt?
