Samsung Electronics introduced The Freestyle, an all-new portable display and entertainment device at CES 2022. The latest technology and exceptional flexibility deliver high-quality picture in any conditions and plenty of additional entertainment for all who don’t want to give up tech comforts even on the road.
Freestyle is primarily designed for Generation Z and Millennials. It can be used as a handy projector, speaker, or mood lighting device. With its compact shape and weight of only 830 grams, it can be carried easily. Unlike traditional cabinet projectors, the free-standing design allows you to rotate the device up to 180 degrees. Thus it can display a high quality image for example on the table, on the floor, on the wall or even on the ceiling. You do not need a separate screen for this.

The auto focus function ensures a sharp image up to 100 inches in size. The Freestyle is also equipped with a dual passive tweeter with a powerful bass component. Sound propagates in all directions around the projector.
In addition to being plugged into a standard electrical outlet, The Freestyle can also be powered by external batteries that support the USB-PD fast charging standard of 50W/20V or higher.
