Samsung Just Unveiled Its New Mixed-Reality Headset For Windows 10

Recently, in partnership with the tech giant Microsoft, the South Korean giant Samsung just announced its brand new mixed-reality headset which is designed to work with the tech giant Microsoft’s Windows 10. This headset is made to work with the Windows Mixed Reality platform, which brings applications and mixed-real-life games to Windows.

In partnership with the tech giant Microsoft, the South Korean giant Samsung announced the HMD Odyssey, a mixed-reality headset designed to work with Windows 10.

The gadget comes with two 3.5-inch AMOLED screens, each with a resolution of 1440 × 1600 pixels. With a 110-degree viewing angle and 90-Hz refresh rate, HMD Odyssey images should look sharp; and experience, more immersive.

This headset is made to work with the Windows Mixed Reality platform, which brings applications and mixed-real-life games to Windows such as Halo Recruit – it will arrive with the Fall Creators Update update on October 17th.

There is more: the Odyssey HMD has two cameras in the front, which guarantees six degrees of freedom of movement – front, back, left, right, up and down. In practice, this means that you have full autonomy to move using the gadget (just be careful not to stumble on anything!).


The headset also comes with the proximity sensor, microphone (to work with Cortana) and volume and focus adjustment.

Moreover, the Odyssey HMD weighs 625 grams (against 470 grams of Oculus Rift and 579 grams of HoloLens). At least you do not need to install an external motion sensor for the headset to function properly.

For $499, the HMD Odyssey comes with headphones from the AKG Austrian brand. The difference is that the model that comes with the headset is over-ear, offering a more immersive and spatial sound. However, the deliveries will begin on November 6th, 2017.
