Early on, the original HMD Odyssey took its place as one of the higher-end Windows 10 Mixed Reality headsets, and this new model - dubbed simply the HMD Odyssey+ - builds on that.

"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", the Microsoftie writes.

Interested buyers can now buy the Windows Mixed Reality headset in the USA via Microsoft store and Samsung.com. It'll be available in other regions including Korea, China, Brazil and Hong Kong soon, Sammy said. However, Samsung is touting an improved display technology that purportedly reduces pattern noise for a "perceived PPI of 1,233". Though the actual pixels-per-inch figure of this headset remains the same as the non-plussed Odyssey at 616 PPI, Samsung claims the new HMD has an "effective PPI" of 1233. According to Samsung, the anti-SDE AMOLED display works by applying "a grid that diffuses light coming from each pixel and replicating the picture to areas around each pixel".

Essentially, it aims to hide the noticeable space by interpolating between pixels or antialiasing slightly in front of the screen. Pricing wasn't announced either, but we can probably expect it to be priced similarly to the original HMD Odyssey. The device also uses AKG audio technology, which gives 360-degree sound to simulate 3D audio. Notably, the Samsung HMD Odyssey+'s controller can act as a flashlight. He added, "With industry-leading display technology and an enhanced, premium design, the new Samsung HMD Odyssey+ offers new levels of immersion, improving upon its already brilliant display resolution for a consumer immersive headset".
