Coming in 15 ” and 17 ” versions, the Odyssey is a little more flashy than Samsung’s usual minimalist design, with a backlit icon on the cover, multicolored keyboard lights, and a decorative outline around the touchpad.
The bottom has a series of vents across the bottom in a crosshatch pattern, which Samsung calls “hexaflow”, and is designed for cooling and access to the components.
The power inside the laptops isn’t anything groundbreaking, offering pretty standard specs. The 15-inch will have a Nvidia GeForce 1050 graphics card, while the 17-inch GPU hasn’t been officially announced yet, though likely to be a 1070 or 1080.
Both with run on Intel’s new 7th-generation Core i7 Kaby Lake processors, and have 1920×1080 resolution screens with anti-glare coating.
Rounding out the rest of the internals, the 17-inch comes with 64GB of DDR4 RAM with a 512 SSD and 1TB hard drive for storage. The 15-incher will have 32GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256GB SSD plus 1TB of storage capacity.
The Samsung Odyssey Notebooks do not have a finalized price or release date yet, but analysts are predicting a spring 2017 launch.
