Portable prowess: Samsung Freestyle

Samsung Freestyle portable projector

The compact Samsung Freestyle is a nifty portable projector intended to provide a big-screen Samsung TV experience on the go. Able to project an image up to 100 inches and provide accompanying 360 degree sound, it also sports an Ambient Mode and a range of optional translucent lens caps that bring mood lighting effects to its mix of talents.

In addition to mains power, the Freestyle is compatible with power banks that support USB-PD and 50W/20V output or above, making it a versatile entertainment centre for camp grounds and other away-from-home sites, as well as backyard movie nights.

The Freestyle can rotate up to 180 degrees, allowing it to project video almost anywhere – onto tables, floors, walls or even ceilings – without the need for a separate screen. Its auto focus feature enables it to display images clearly up to 100 inches, regardless of the surface, according to Samsung, while auto keystone and auto levelling means it can compensate for uneven surfaces and angles to produce a proportional image.

While the Freestyle provides Full HD resolution, Samsung has not specified brightness or sound output levels.

Samsung Smart TV goodness is built-in, providing access to streaming services as well as mirroring and casting features from Android and iOS devices. There’s also far-field voice control, so you can use your preferred voice assistant for handsfree operation.

The Freestyle costs $1499 and is available for online pre-order in Australia from January 17.
