Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality platform has seen encouraging support from hardware manufacturers. Several OEM partners have launched their Windows Mixed Reality headsets and many more are working on theirs. It appears that Samsung might have one in the pipeline as well. Renders of a purported Samsung Windows Mixed Reality headset have been leaked online today.

Not much is known about this handset so far. Samsung hasn’t said anything and neither has Microsoft. It’s unclear when Samsung is planning on launching this device.

The renders show a wearable headset with built-in AKG headphones. That won’t be surprising, given that AKG’s parent company Harman International is owned by Samsung.

Samsung’s name is plastered across the headband while Windows Mixed Reality is mentioned on the side of the headset. The controllers look interesting as well, unlike any we’ve seen so far in other headsets.

No further information is available at this point in time. It’s unclear what kind of specs this head is going to boast. The images suggest that there’s a pair of depth-sensing cameras on the front which should power room-scale tracking. The headset is likely going to have six degrees of freedom tracking like many of its rivals.

Samsung has not yet confirmed or denied the existence of this headset. Microsoft is conducting an event on October 3rd in San Francisco. Perhaps we’ll hear more about the headset at the event.
