Samsung Unveils Odyssey MR/VR Headset

Samsung joins Microsoft’s VR parade with its new high-end headset for Windows 10

The Samsung HMD Odyssey will feature full support for Microsoft’s Mixed Reality Platform and feature two AMOLED displays, inside-out tracking, a built-in microphone (for Cortana support) and the usual Windows motions controllers. The displays will offer a 110-degree field of view, which is on par with the Oculus Rift. What does set the Odyssey apart, though, is its per-eye resolution of 1440×1600 for the two 3.5″ displays with a 90Hz refresh rate, which is significantly higher than that of rival headsets.

This is the first Microsoft MR HMD that interests me.

I hope the Microsoft Store will have a demo set up soon. This is one I’d really like to try.
