HTC Vive Adapter was unveiled together with Vive Pro. The said Pro version will have a pixel count of almost 80 percent higher than the core model, making the resolution 1,440 x 1,600 per panel (2,880 x 1,600 combined), which is quite a step up from the default 1,080 x 1,200 (2,160 x 1,200 together) of the standard model.

Despite the increased resolution putting extra demands on the wireless bandwidth, the newly announced cable-free module that's due to ship after the summer will still work with the Vive Pro. At CES 2018, the company updated their VIVE VR headset by announcing a Pro version. "At this year's CES, it felt like a smithy unveiling a new range of instruments". The new adapter supports automatic restart, wireless interference reduction, and automatic wireless channel detection that substantially improves the stability of the Wireless VR connectivity.
HTC's original Vive headset first launched nearly a couple of years ago, and VR headsets, particularly on the higher-end, have come a long way since then.
The next generation of headsets might include even more advanced technologies like eye-tracking, which could allow ultra high resolution rendering of graphics at the exact point on the screen where users are looking. Some expectations go as far ahead as 2019, but in the meantime, the Wireless Adaptor is expected to launch sometime during the third quarter of 2018.
