Many people were looking forward to the release of the standalone Daydream VR headset in partnership with HTC. But that no longer seems to be happening according to Clay Bavor who is the head of the virtual reality team at Google. In a tweet directed towards Tech Crunch, Bavor stated, “Confirmed, no Daydream standalone from HTC, but we remain great partners.”

This is quite shocking as both Google and HTC have been talking about this upcoming standalone VR headset ever since its announcement back at Google I/O 2017. Rather, Google has decided to go with Lenovo in launching the standalone Daydream VR headset.

Clay Bavor states that he has been using the Lenovo standalone headset, running Daydream. We aren’t quite sure if HTC plans on releasing the Vive Focus to the western markets yet. They might be going at this alone or might not even release the Focus outside of the Chinese market.

We don’t quite know the full specs behind the upcoming Lenovo standalone headset but we believe that it’ll be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip which is found in the Vive Focus headset.

Vive Focus also doesn’t have a price tag yet. More updates to follow.
