Samsung has announced the launch of its all-new portable screen and entertainment device, The Freestyle, which offers some new technology and flexibility to deliver a viewing and entertainment option to customers wherever they go.

The Freestyle is essentially a small projector, smart speaker and ambient lighting device all rolled into one lightweight, portable product. When it comes to portability, The Freestyle weighs only 830 grams allowing to change any space into a screen with ease. Unlike conventional, boxy projectors, The Freestyle’s versatile cradle allows rotation of up to 180 degrees, enabling users to show video anywhere – tables, floors, walls or even ceilings – with no separate screen required.

The Freestyle comes with full auto keystone and auto levelling features, which allows the device to automatically adjust its screen to any surface at any angle, providing a perfectly proportional image irrespective of the surface it’s on. Additionally, the autofocus feature allows The Freestyle to display a clear image at any angle, up to 100 inches in size. The Freestyle also comes with a dual passive radiator enabling a clean and deeper bass without distortion.

For powering it up, The Freestyle is compatible with external batteries that support USB-PD and 50W/20V output or above, so users can take it with them anywhere.

When it’s not used as a projector to stream content, The Freestyle also provides mood lighting effect thanks to its ambient mode and translucent lens cap. The Freestyle is also a smart speaker, analysing the music to pair visual effects that can also be projected.

The Freestyle offers Smart TV features available on Samsung Smart TVs, with built-in streaming services and mirroring and casting features compatible with both Android and iOS mobile devices, along with far-field voice control, allowing users to choose their favourite voice assistants when using the device hands-free.

The Samsung Freestyle is priced at $899.99 (around R13,750), but official South African pricing is yet to be confirmed.
