Samsung has announced a new advanced display technology for the HMD Odyssey+, bringing true-to-life visuals to its entry in the Windows Mixed Reality space that delivers an improved life-like and immersive experience.
To push visual boundaries, the headset has dual 3.5-inch AMOLED displays and a combined resolution of 2,880 x 1,600. And on the audio end, it integrates AKG’s premium audio technology for exceptional and dynamic sound performance. You’ll feel truly in the moment with built-in 360-degree Spatial Sound support that simulates 3D sounds, delivering clear and precise acoustics from every angle. There are also built-in volume controls.
You’ll experience true, distraction-free immersive viewing with the Samsung HMD Odyssey+’s exclusive Anti-Screen Door Effect (Anti-SDE) Display innovation . When fine lines separating pixels become visible in some displays, the “screen door effect” can hinder immersion and even lead to dizziness or nausea over time. This headset deploys its cutting-edge display technology to fight irritating fixed-pattern noise for an enhanced MR experience.
And for those moments when you need to get back to reality, its controller can act as a flashlight so you can see the world around you – delivering a more comfortable and convenient way to stay aware of your surroundings.
But while you’re wearing the headset, you’ll find you can enjoy it longer, thanks to its improved ergonomic design. It weighs only 1.3 pounds and has a wider eye box to help match your facial features.
And now, anyone can find that perfect fit because everything from the headband to the display position, to the Inter-Pupillary Distance (IPD) wheel, is easily adjustable. The breathable anti-fog material of the face padding ensures the inside of the eye box doesn’t mist up, so you can enjoy your MR experience in greater comfort for extended hours, while the detachable design makes the headset easy to clean.
When you’re gaming with the headset, you’ll find built-in Bluetooth and Inside-Out Position tracking features, along with an easy plug-in setup with a compatible PC – you can jump into MR from just about anywhere. It also comes with pre-paired controllers, so you can start playing right out of the box.
With precision 6 Degrees Of Freedom (6DOF) tracking, you can indulge in richer mixed reality experiences. The 6DOF controller can detect your every move and distance traveled inside your MR world, responding quickly to the slightest motion, ensuring your gameplay movements are more natural, and significantly reducing any dizziness from in-game motion.
The Samsung HMD Odyssey+ will be available in the U.S. starting Oct. 22 at the Microsoft Store and Samsung.com, and will be soon available in other regions including Korea, China, Hong Kong and Brazil.
It will also be on showcase at Unite Los Angeles at the Microsoft booth 309-310 from Oct. 23 – 25.

 Samsung Anti-SDE AMOLED Display solves SDE by applying a grid that diffuses light coming from each pixel and replicating the picture to areas around each pixel. This makes the spaces between pixels near impossible to see. In result, your eyes perceive the diffused light as part of the visual content, with a perceived PPI of 1,233PPI, double that of the already high 616PPI of the previous generation Samsung HMD Odyssey+.
