“The HMD Odyssey+ is likely to offer support for both Windows Mixed Reality and SteamVR platforms”
It seems like Samsung is close to launching its second-ever virtual reality headset dubbed the HMD Odyssey+, shortly. The successor to the last year’s HMD Odyssey was recently spotted on the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) site detailing its schematics and key specifications. Interestingly, the headset has now made its way to the Bluetooth certification agency, which hints that the upcoming Samsung HMD Odyssey+ could have support for Bluetooth to pair it with a gamepad or any other accessory.
The listing further reveals that the Odyssey+ comes with model number XE800ZBA, which is the same as the one on FCC. It also confirms that the headset will have the support for Windows Mixed Reality platform. Notably, the Bluetooth agency has certified two different VR headsets, which means that we could see two variants of HMD Odyssey+ upon launch.
As for the specifications, the Samsung HMD Odyssey+ is expected to feature a built-in 3.5-inch AMOLED panel with a screen resolution of 1,600 x 1,440 pixels for each eye and a 110-degree field of view. Apart from supporting Windows Mixed Reality, the headset might also support SteamVR platforms to offer VR games on the go. That’s not all; it’s further expected to come with a ‘Wider Eye box, Wider Part of Nose, Anti-fog,’ for a comfortable fit. There are also features like AKG-tuned audio, HDMI, and USB port.
The pricing and availability of the Samsung HMD Odyssey+ are unknown at the moment. We’ll keep an eye on the device and bring you more updates as and when they emerge, so stay tuned.
