“The new Odyssey+ MR headset from Samsung is expected to offer a slightly more comfortable design”
In October last year, the South Korean tech giant Samsung entered the mixed reality headset market with the launch of the HMD Odyssey. Now, the company is rumoured to launch the second-gen variant of the wearable, which is expected to be called the Samsung Odyssey+. While, the brand hasn’t yet confirmed the existence of this MR (mixed reality) headset, the upcoming offering from the vendor has been spotted on multiple certifications website. Recently, the alleged Samsung Odyssey+ bagged FCC certification. Now yesterday, the manufacturer’s next-gen Odyssey+ MR headset has been certified by 3C.
Samsung has received the 3C certification for the upcoming Odyssey+ MR headset under the model number “XE800ZBA”, which is in line with the same product’s FCC certification. The certification reveals that the device will sip power from a computer via USB with 5VDC power input. Sadly, the certification hasn’t revealed anything else regarding the upcoming Samsung MR headset.
If the upcoming Samsung Odyssey+ MR headset’s FCC listing is to be believed, the new headset from the company could arrive with minor upgrades over its predecessor. The new device could offer a slightly bigger nose contact area, which will offer a more comfortable user experience. The wearable is expected to offer a better viewing area and reduced lens fogging due to the bigger nose contact area.
Unfortunately, as of now, there’s no word regarding the other specifications of the upcoming Samsung Odyssey+ mixed reality headset at the moment. Also, the company hasn’t yet revealed the launch date for the headset.
