HTC has what is arguably the best virtual reality headset on the market with the HTC Vive. In fact it is pretty obvious that they have sunk most of their eggs in the VR headset basket over the past several years. All this work may actually pay off for HTC. They are possibly about to go mobile with their VR division this year. HTC CFO "Chia-Lang Chang" confirmed that HTC is working on a Mobile VR headset that isn't just a phone in a headset like what we have seen with the Gear VR from Samsung.
The HTC Vive is a high end product that requires a powerful PC, and it is more than most of the market is willing to buy. HTC is looking to provide a similar high quality VR experience in a more mobile friendly way. Hopefully the device will have a dedicated display and PC unit built into the headset so you don't have to worry about lugging around a PC in a backpack.
