According to VR-specialized media Road to VR , HTC has submitted documents to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) about the new VR headset ahead of its online event scheduled for October 14.

In addition, since HTC has been promoting the concept of a metaverse 'Viveport Verse' that can be accessed from multiple devices, Protocol says that it is making ambitious efforts to build a virtual world with 'VIVE Flow and Viveport Verse'.
