Speaking with The Verge, a Samsung spokesperson said that the Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality headset will be released in the U.S., but it won't be coming to Europe. There's no indication as to why Samsung is skipping the European market, but it's a move that will likely come as a disappointment to some.
Samsung's Odyssey headset is largely seen as the frontrunner among the current lineup of Windows Mixed Reality headsets. While most of the headsets feature very similar specs, Samsung's offering stands out from the pack with OLED 1400x1600 displays and a wider, 110-degree field-of-view. The Odyssey also packs its own set of integrated headphones. The headset also comes at a premium of $499.
Microsoft only just added support for Windows Mixed Reality in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which launched this week alongside a lineup of headsets from hardware partners like Acer, HP, Lenovo, and Dell. Samsung's headset is set to launch on November 6 in the U.S. for $499.
