HP reveals the Reverb G2 VR headset

In collaboration with Valve and Microsoft, HP has revealed its new Reverb G2 VR headset made for seamless integration with Windows Mixed Reality and SteamVR. This headset was teased by HP a while back when it was in the development phase. It features a revamped controller, new lenses and speaker from VR pioneer Valve, and more tracking cameras. Let’s talk about the specifications of the VR headset in a bit detail.

The Reverb G2 VR headset comes with 2160 x 2160 LCD panels per eye and full RGB stripe with a 114-degree field of view, like its predecessor. Although it features a refresh rate of 90Hz, the impressive and comfortable off-ear speakers balance it out. Thanks to HP, we get to see the spatial audio on speakers that sit 10mm from the user’s ear.

Also some notable improvements have been made in the camera. The VR headset now uses four-camera tracking for 1.4x better movement capture. According to Mark Bolas, partner director of incubation at Microsoft, “With four cameras, the controller tracking feels even more like an extension of your hands, making the sense of immersion that much stronger.”

As for the price and availability, the Reverb G2 VR headset will be up for purchase this fall for around $599 (45,274.52 Indian Rupee). You can pre-order the VR headset today on Steam, HP.com, and selected partners.
