    Samsung launched its first Windows Mixed Reality headset last month. It's called Samsung Odyssey and requires a compatible Windows 10-powered computer to function. Samsung started taking pre-orders for the headset last month and it's is now available for purchase via Samsung's website.

    This isn't a standalone headset so it will be of no use until it's hooked up to a compatible Windows 10 PC. Samsung's mixed reality headset has much better specifications compared to the other headsets that have been launched so far.

    Samsung Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality Headset

    Instead of LCD panels, the Samsung Samsung Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality Headset has dual 3.5-inch AMOLED panels for a combined resolution of 2880×1600. That's significantly more than the 1440×1440 resolution of competing headsets.

    The headset also features inside-out position tracking with a Six Degrees of Freedom sensor. This means that users aren't restricted to a limited space during their VR experience.

    The headset boasts up to 110-degree field of view and refresh rate of up to 90Hz. It even has integrated AKG headphones with support for 360° Spatial Sound. The bundled motion controllers feature haptic feedback with thumbsticks and button control for ease of use.

    Samsung has launched the headset in the United States first. It has already confirmed that the headset will be released in China, Hong Kong, Korea and Brazil later this year.

    The Samsung Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality Headset can now be purchased via the company's website for $499.
