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.

Features

The Freestyle combines video projection, smart TV features, decorative/party lighting, and music playback which is great for casual lifestyles, partying, and traveling.

  • 1080p native display resolution.
  • As a video projector, you can display 30 to 100-inch images of whatever you’re watching on a screen, wall, or ceiling and can be used inside or outside. For example, you can lay it on the floor and watch a show on the ceiling with its 180-degree cradle stand, or sit in your bed and project your favorite content onto your walls.
  • Built-in Auto Focus, Auto Leveling, and Keystone Correction provide quick and easy setup. 
  • Wireless connectivity includes Wi-Fi. Bluetooth, and Screen Mirroring.

  • For music listening the Freestyle provides immersive 360-degree sound.
  • Voice control via Bixby, Alexa, or Google Assistant is supported via its built-in far-field microphones. 
  • In addition to projection and music listening you can create mood lighting (great for parties) by attaching the provided lens cap. 
  • You can even sync the lighting to your favorite music playlist.

  • The Freestyle only weighs 1.83 lbs, making it a great personal entertainment companion.
