Samsung may soon have a new Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headset to show if, if new FCC filings spotted by Road to VR are any indication. Called the Samsung HMD Odyssey+, the headset would be the successor to the HMD Odyssey, which was launched as part of the initial wave of WMR headsets last year.
However, don't expect any wild departures from the original. The specs available through the FCC filing point to a headset that is largely the same as the original. The per-eye resolution remains the same at 1440x1600 and a 110-degree field of view.
The main area Samsung appears to be make changes involve comfort and display tech. The display is labeled as using "AMOLED+SFS," but it isn't clear what "SFS" stands for in this case. The eye box and nose opening are also described as being wider, along with changes to cut down on fogging.
The platforms listed for the Odyssey+ include WMR and SteamVR, but this is likely a reference to WMR's compatibility with SteamVR.
In any case, with the headset's appearance at the FCC, it's likely we'll know much more about it soon. For now, Samsung's current HMD Odyssey headset is available for $399.
