We're mostly speculating at this point, but looking back at those schematics Google showed off at I/O in May (seen above, left), the similarities between it and HTC's new headset are uncanny.
DigitalTrends reports that the Chinese headset is expected to have front mounted cameras with fisheye lenses, a gyroscope, accelerometer, and motion sensing tech inside. The headset will only see a limited release at first though, with plans to only launch in China for the time being.

The China stand-alone VR headset will more than likely features Qualcomm's hardware infrastructure, but will not have anything to do with Google and its WorldSense technology.
The launch for HTC's Vive Standalone VR headset comes just weeks after rumours surfaced that Oculus is also working on a wire-free VR device that'll cost just $200 (around £155). It looks much sturdier with a head-strap akin to that used by the PlayStation VR headset, the VR headset with, in our opinion, the most comfortable fit of all VR headsets now on the market. The recent similar announcement of the HTC Vive HDM project is no accident as HTC wants to get the developers around its project. As is the case with all tethered headsets, it requires a powerful PC setup to function. HTC's landing page for the headset also says it will run games and other apps from Viveport, HTC's own app store. Built using Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 mobile processor, it will act independently of a PC and will use battery power for a few hours of operation.
