Sam­sung

has joined Asus, HP, Acer, Len­ovo and Dell in part­ner­ing with Mi­crosoft to make their own Mixed Re­al­ity head­set, but rather than shar­ing the same specs as the other head­sets, and, con­trary to the idea of all head­sets be­ing the same, the Sam­sung Odyssey fea­tures a higher res­o­lu­tion and wider FOV than any of the com­pet­ing head­sets. The Odyssey will boast dual AMOLED screens with a res­o­lu­tion of 1400x1600 (rather than the stan­dard 1400x1400) de­liv­er­ing a 110 de­gree FOV rather than the 95 on the stan­dard head­sets. The head­set will also fea­ture an ad­justable in­ter­pupil­lary dis­tance for a lit­tle more cus­tomi­sa­tion. De­spite the slightly dif­fer­ent specs, the Odyssey will still be fully com­pat­i­ble with the Mi­crosoft Mixed Re­al­ity API as well as SteamVR. The head­set is ex­pected to go on sale Novem­ber 6 for $499 USD with a pair of mo­tion con­trollers in­cluded.
