The leaked Samsung controllers look very similar, but perhaps with slightly more ergonomic grips, to other ones we've seen demoed with Microsoft VR headsets.

We're excited about Windows for the first time in as long as we can remember, and you will be too after you watch the demo below.
The HMD Odyssey additionally comes with a pair of motion controllers that lets players move around their environment without having to bother about sensors. Featuring dual AMOLED screens and built-in 360-degree headphones, you can immerse yourself in mixed reality deeper than with other options.
Samsung joins Acer Inc., Dell Inc., HP Inc. and Lenovo Group Ltd.in building headsets on top of the Windows platform. Because the company wants to differentiate its mixed reality experiences from VR. Thanks to them, the friendships, weddings, birthday parties, and karaoke nights will keep going. In August, Redmond said, that in addition to games built for the Windows Mixed Reality APIs, games built for SteamVR would also be supported.
The headset has a 110-degree field of view, and each display has a resolution of 1440x1600, with a refresh rate of 90Hz. If it wasn't abundantly clear already, this is not an actual Halo game, so don't go in with the expectations of it being one when it does release. The Samsung Odyssey VR headset launched November 6th for $499 USD.
