Unveiled at CES 2022, the Samsung The Freestyle portable projector marked the Korean manufacturer’s grand entrance into the pico projector market. In 2023, the manufacturer will release an improved version of this Samsung The Freestyle projector with two significant new features: the ability to merge the image of two projectors to project in cinemascope format, and the Samsung Gaming Hub to play wirelessly without a console or PC via cloud gaming!
The Freestyle 2023: the all-purpose projector
Portable, exhaustive and easy to use, the Samsung The Freestyle caught users’ attention as soon as it was released in early 2022. Light enough (800g) to be carried in one hand, this projector can be powered by an external battery for mobile use when not connected to a power outlet at home.
The Samsung The Freestyle can be rotated 180° to project onto the ceiling, automatically adjusts the projected image (focus and geometry) and broadcasts sound at 360°. Connected to the Internet, it streams movies and series from Netflix, Disney+, AppleTV+ and even YouTube and projects them onto any wall of the house.
The Freestyle 2023: 21:9 cinema image
The Samsung The Freestyle 2023 portable projector brings a new feature to moviegoers: Smart EDGE Blending. This allows users to combine two Samsung The Freestyle projectors to project a large 21:9 cinema format image.
In this case, each of the two projectors projects one half of the image. The left and right parts of the picture are automatically assembled, without any misalignment and without any manual adjustment by the user.
The Freestyle 2023: Samsung Gaming Hub
The other major new feature adopted by the Samsung The Freestyle 2023 projector is its compatibility with the Samsung Gaming Hub. We talked about it on this blog, this service allows you to free yourself from your console or PC to play your favorite games on any 2022 Samsung Smart TV. Now it’s also possible with the Samsung The Freestyle 2023!
Samsung has not yet announced a price or release date for the Samsung The Freestyle 2023. If you’re not planning to project in cinemascope or exploit cloud gaming, the first-generation Samsung The Freestyle is still perfect for big-screen streaming and console gaming anywhere at home, at friends’ houses and on vacation!
