CES 2022: Samsung’s Unusual Portable Projector, The Freestyle

The Freestyle by Samsung is an interesting entertainment party gadget that combines a projector, decorative light, and music player.

Samsung The Freestyle Portable Projector Lifestyle

These days, most people don’t spend as much time sitting on the couch watching TV and listening to music, but that doesn’t mean they are necessarily forgoing a fun entertainment experience. 

With that in mind, Samsung builds on its “screens everywhere” concept with the introduction of a unique lifestyle device, dubbed The Freestyle by Samsung.

Although, not an ultra-short-throw home cinema projector like The Premiere by Samsung, The Freestyle is designed for fun experiences while opening up new use cases. It offers a big screen TV entertainment experience wherever there is a white wall — even the ceiling. And because it can be powered by a battery (optional), The Freestyle is truly a go-anywhere projector.
