Hands-on: Samsung The Freestyle portable projector

At CES 2022, Samsung released a new portable smart TV projector called The Freestyle. And recently, we were invited to Samsung 's office to have a hands-on experience with the new entertainment device. Weighing 830g, the Freestyle is set in a cradle that allows it to rotate around 180 degrees so users can watch content just about anywhere, from tables, floors,...

Weighing 830g, the Freestyle is set in a cradle that allows it to rotate around 180 degrees so users can watch content just about anywhere, from tables, floors, walls or even ceilings.It also has a 5W built-in speaker that Samsung says comes with dual passive radiators enabling a clean and deep bass and delivering 360-degree sound.

This allows the Freestyle to automatically adjust its screen to fit virtually any surface or angle it's put on, helping provide a proportional image, even on uneven ground.The Freestyle can also be used outside if you have an external battery that can support it.

And recently, we were invited to Samsung's office to have a hands-on experience with the new entertainment device. Weighing 830g, the Freestyle is set in a cradle that allows it to rotate around 180 degrees so users can watch content just about anywhere, from tables, floors, walls or even ceilings. The 8-year-old boy raised his arm to block the blow, but had a pencil in hand. It can project an image that ranges from 30 to 100 inches in size at Full-HD resolution. "I have enough experience and I came here to fix issues that, maybe, are coming from five years ago," said Benitez who was a controversial choice as Everton boss in the close season. According to Samsung, the minimum distance required for a 30-inch picture is 0. The incident occured on New Year’s eve last year.8 metres and the distance required to project a 100-inch picture is 2. "We have to win our next game now to make sure we qualify and we will do our best to go as far as we can in the tournament.

7 metres. The father was unhappy with the boy’s handwriting and instructed his son to redo the work, to which the boy continually refused. I have to do my job. Brightness is rated at 550 nits. It also has a 5W built-in speaker that Samsung says comes with dual passive radiators enabling a clean and deep bass and delivering 360-degree sound. PHOTO: WEIBO The boy was rushed to hospital, where medical staff performed emergency surgery. In terms of inputs, there's a Micro HDMI port. Everton fans unfurled banners calling for Benitez to go and chanted against the Spaniard and the club's board. However, users can also stream content wirelessly over Samsung's Tap View or Apple's AirPlay 2. It had missed his spinal canal by mere millimetres, said the doctor, an injury that could have caused paralysis. However the referee ruled out the goal after reviewing the images, judging that Balde had grappled Egypt right-back Omar Kamal to the ground.

It also has support for major streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, and YouTube. The Freestyle comes with full auto keystone and auto-levelling features, and from what we saw, it does all the adjusting and focusing very quickly."Everyone came here expecting us to win and we couldn't. This allows the Freestyle to automatically adjust its screen to fit virtually any surface or angle it's put on, helping provide a proportional image, even on uneven ground. Handily, it doesn't even need the screen to be white as The Freestyle optimises projection based on the wall colour. Another nifty feature is the ability to project images off centre. Their third league win of the season moved them to 18th place and just a point behind Watford who they face next.

In the bedroom, this means you can place the Freestyle on your nightstand and still project an image that's in the middle of your bed. The Freestyle can also be used outside if you have an external battery that can support it. Samsung will ship its own external battery but using one from a third party can be more difficult as The Freestyle is only compatible with external batteries and power banks that support USB-PD and can deliver an output of 65W/20V or above. "I hope everybody, certainly our fans, can go home today a little bit more pleased and see a little bit more light at the end of the tunnel. The external battery isn't the only accessory that Samsung will be bringing for The Freestyle. There is an add on lens cap that can match with The Freestyle's Ambient Mode to display mood lighting.

The Ambient and Cinegraph modes are also why Samsung says that The Freestyle is more than a projector that only projects content. Like Samsung's The Frame, The Freestyle can project content like animated wallpapers, pictures, and messages. Even though the unit we experienced wasn't the final item (it was a pre-production unit), we were impressed by the picture quality. Being in a dark room certainly helps, but the pictures it projected were sharp and bright. The speakers were impressively loud and exhibit noticeable distortion at high volumes, but the bass could be better.

Fortunately, Samsung told us that it expects the final version to have significantly better sound quality. Pricing and availability Local pricing and availability of The Freestyle have yet to be released. We reached out to Samsung but all they would say is that there is an online site for registration of interest. We will update this article when we receive more information. That said, Samsung is taking pre-orders now in the US at US$899.
