The images of what appeared to be a prototype virtual reality headset were discovered on Imgur by Redditor 2flock.
However, UploadVR’s sources confirmed that the device in the images was indeed the upcoming Valve VR headset.
The Valve VR headset will feature a 135-degree field of view, with resolution to match the Vive Pro, the sources said.
In addition, the device may be sold in a bundle with Valve’s Knuckles controllers and a Half-Life VR game, which may be a prequel to the series instead of the highly anticipated Half-Life 3 .
It is unclear when the VR headset will be released, but it is very likely that Valve has made progress on its prototypes as the clock on the monitor in the image indicates that the pictures were taken in July.
