Samsung’s Freestyle comes to the UK – a super go-anywhere mini projector

Pop-up cinema

There are always plenty of unusual gadgets at January’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but it’s often maverick brands that come up with strange stuff that you think could actually be useful.

This year, however, it was Samsung. Its Freestyle projector bucked the trend. It’s an $899/£999 projector that’s completely portable so you can use it from a campervan, at a friend’s house or anywhere you’d like.

What’s more, it’s no vaporware – the Freestyle has just launched in the UK.

The Freestyle can display an image between 30 and 100 inches. It’s Full HD resolution rather than 4K, but the name of the game here is portability, so you’re not necessarily going to be demanding the tippermost toppermost resolution.

The 830g projector provides 360 degree sound while the Freestyle itself can also rotate 180 degrees, so you can show things on the ceiling, around a corner, wherever you want.

The Freestyle also comes with full auto keystone and auto levelling too so it can automatically adjust its screen to any surface at any angle and so give a perfectly proportional image every time. There’s also an autofocus feature so you don’t need to faff about with getting the ideal image.

The projector can also be powered easily from a USB PD-supporting source or 50W/20V output so you can easily use it where you don’t have access to a traditional wall socket.

It also offers the same Smart TV features you can get on Samsung Smart TVs, with built-in streaming services plus mirroring and casting from both Android and iOS mobile devices. It also includes far-field voice control and you can choose what voice assistant you want to use it with.
