Although CES 2022 has already seen a lot of fascinating technological advances, the one from Samsung may be one of the most underappreciated. The tech giant’s fresh new portable projector, the Freestyle, can turn any surface into a smart TV.
The Samsung Freestyle projector, which costs $899, weighs just under 2 pounds and can project a screen ranging from 30 to 100 inches in size with a sharp Full HD 1080p quality. However, it is not developed in the same way as other projectors.
The Freestyle was created as an “ultraportable smart TV projector,” as the name suggests. Many people might think it’s a little pricey; however, it has exclusive features such as auto-focus, 180-degree rotating capability, and Bixby voice activation.
The Freestyle is more than just a “portable smart TV,” as you can see in the video below. It can also project birthday or holiday wishes, any stationary scene of choice, or photos on any suitable surface.
If desired, it might also be used as mood lighting. Finally, the projector includes unrestricted scaling and movement capabilities, allowing you to position the screen wherever you want it.
Samsung revealed several TV announcements during their presentation, including the Freestyle. In addition, it was announced with revisions to their MicroLED and Neo QLED TV models and the latest edition of their The Frame TV.
Is The Freestyle One Of The Most Important CES 2022 Announcements? Perhaps it is, based on early reviews of the new smart TV projector.
Newsweek was one of the first to get their hands on the projector, and their immediate impressions are very positive. First, they commended its size and capacity for projecting a gigantic 100-inch screen, which is nearly unheard of in the TV industry, let alone the projector industry.
Compared to a typical 100-inch 4K smart TV, which can cost up to $5,000, the Freestyle’s $899 price is hard to match.
