Samsung’s FCC Filing for New Odyssey+ Mixed Reality Headset

(TheVerge) Samsung may be prepping to release an updated version of the HMD Odyssey, its Windows Mixed Reality headset launched at the end of last year, according to a new FCC filing. The new headset will be called the HMD Odyssey+. The filing shows that the headset’s display size remains the same with dual 3.5-inch screens with a 1440 x 1600 resolution per eye, but now the eye box is wider to prevent fogging. The specs chart below does mention a new acronym we haven’t seen before with “AMOLED+SFS” listed as the display type, but it’s not yet clear what SFS is.
Samsung has a lot to offer the VR world. It makes excellent OLED screens, manufactures respected consumer products, and is one of relatively few pioneers in next-generation chips — including 5G wireless modems, which are expected to play a big role in future VR headsets.
