HTC will unveil the Vive Flow tomorrow at a live VR session, billed by the company as 'Go with the Flow'. It seems that HTC did a poor job of hiding Vive Flow assets though, because Evan Blass has leaked 25 images on Twitter.

Supposedly, HTC has designed the Vive Flow for 'well-being and mindful productivity', rather than as a regular VR headset. Based on the images below, the Vive Flow lacks an internal battery, relying on a USB Type-C connection for power instead. Additionally, the device has a fan, built-in speakers and adjustable diopter lenses that support up to -6.0D of focusing power.

The Vive Flow will pair to a smartphone using Bluetooth. Once connected, you will be able to use your smartphone as a VR controller; there are no dedicated VR controllers included with the Vive Flow. Moreover, the Vive Flow supports Miracast for streaming content wirelessly to it from a paired smartphone.

The HTC Vive Flow will be available to order from October 15 for US$499. According to one image, HTC will bundle two months of Infinity Vista, seven 'free VR contents' and a 'free' carrying case with pre-orders. The Vive Flow will start shipping in early November.
