While brands like Facebook, HTC, Oculus, and Samsung are focusing on virtual reality and Apple is focusing on Augmented reality, Microsoft has made Mixed Reality a big part of its Windows 10 operating system. The company is holding a special Mixed Reality event next week where it could launch multiple Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and Samsung appears to be one of its partner brands.
Twitter user Walking Cat has uncovered images of what appears to be Samsung’s Windows Mixed Reality headset. It appears to have six degree-of-freedom tracking, like most other Windows Mixed Reality headsets. It has two cameras on the front and AKG-branded headphones, similar to Oculus’ Rift VR headset. Samsung’s headset could ship with Microsoft’s motion controllers.
Nothing much is known about the upcoming Mixed Reality headset from Samsung as of now, but it could be unveiled at Microsoft’s event and launch next month alongside Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on October 17. As of now, Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, and Lenovo have unveiled their Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and pricing ranges from as low as $299 to as high as $450.
