A new challenger has entered the VR headset space, HP's Reverb G2. Designed with help from Valve and Microsoft, the G2 is a $599 device that may just hit the sweet spot for those looking to get into VR.
The G2 has an 2,160 by 2,160 per eye resolution which compliments the LCDs with lenses designed by Valve. HP has also added a new IPD toggle that allows you to adjust the distance between the lenses to accommodate the gap between your pupils better. When you put on the G2, the speakers will sit about 10mm away from your ears and deliver fully immersive spatial audio.
The G2 features four cameras that HP claims can capture more movement for tracking. You won't need to use external sensors in conjunction with the G2 to move around in games and other VR experiences. You can pre-order the Reverb G2 starting today. HP expects to release the headset in fall 2020.
