The Freestyle also features a twin passive radiator that enables for a clean and deeper bass without distortion, as well as 360-degree sound radiation that lets users to enjoy cinema-quality sound no matter where they are.
The Freestyle may be powered by external batteries1 that support USB-PD and 50W/20V output or higher, allowing users to carry it with them wherever they go, whether on the go, camping, or otherwise. Apart from compatibility with the typical wall plug option, the Freestyle is a pioneer in that it is the first portable screen that works when attached to a regular E262 light socket without the need for special wiring.
The Freestyle’s ambient mode and translucent lens cover provide mood lighting when it’s not being used as a projector to transmit content. The Freestyle is also a smart speaker that analyses music to create visual effects that may be projected on walls, floors, and other surfaces.
With built-in streaming services, mirroring and casting functions compatible with both Android and iOS mobile devices, the Freestyle offers Smart TV functionality available on Samsung Smart TVs. It’s the only portable projector in the industry to be certified by key OTT partners across the world, ensuring users get the finest video viewing experience possible. It’s also the first projector with far-field voice control, allowing users to use the gadget hands-free while utilising their favourite voice assistants.
The Freestyle will be on display from January 5 to 7 at CES 2022, and will be available for pre-order on January 4 in the United States, with availability increasing to other worldwide markets in the coming months.
