It looks like the HTC Vive is about to get a big visual update, or at least that’s what they seem to want people to think is coming in just a few days at CES. We don’t know for sure what’s in store, but that seems like the most logical assumption.
Just a few moments ago the official Twitter account for the SteamVR headset posted the message below:

The wordplay and design seems to suggest that some form of update to Vive’s display resolution is on the way. Could this possibly mean an updated headset with a higher-resolution than the two 1080 x 1200 panels used in the original Vive? Rumors have circulated that HTC may release an enhanced Vive with a 4K display in the past, so it’s certainly possible. If so, will we see any other updates to the kit?
Crucially, the tease points to a January 8th reveal, which is the day that Vive hosts its CES 2018 press conference. We’ll be following along closely so check back for the latest.
