We all want bigger, brighter TVs in our homes, but these huge screens aren’t exactly portable. Trying to disassemble your 85-inch 4K TV and move it to another room sounds as fun as watching a Christmas episode of EastEnders. Fortunately, it looks like Samsung has come up with a neat new way to make it easier to move the big screen from one room to another.
The company’s new Freestyle tool is a small projector that can send content to any surface inside and outside your home.
Samsung says the lightweight device is powerful enough to create an image up to 100 inches in size which should be ideal for anyone who wants a cinema-style experience without buying a bulky TV. Freestyle also includes some cool tricks including a special cradle that allows it to rotate up to 180 degrees – allowing users to project high-quality videos onto tables, floors, walls, or even ceilings.
There’s also autofocus, so you don’t have to fiddle with any settings to get crystal clear content and auto leveling is included so things don’t look shaky.
Samsung has made sure this device is easy to use, and it also comes with built-in streaming apps so you can watch Netflix and Disney+ without the need for a smartphone or tablet.
In addition to indulging in box sets and watching movies, the Freestyle has many other features including powerful speakers with a dual passive radiator that enables clear and deep sound.
And that’s not all as this device can also be converted into a smart speaker or smart ambient light to add some different ambiance and music to your rooms.
“The Freestyle Projector is a unique projector geared towards absolute versatility and flexibility to meet the changing lifestyles of consumers,” said Simon Song, Executive Vice President and Head of Sales and Marketing, Visual Display, Samsung. electronics. “Without limitations in space and form factor, the Freestyle is a fun and versatile device that can be used in any way consumers prefer.”
There is no price information yet but expect more news about the full launch in the coming weeks.
Freestyle isn’t the only gadget Samsung launched this week for watching TV.
The company just revealed its new TVs that will all launch later this year and now include better screens, improved sound, and an easier way to find content. We have full details of Samsung’s launch here.
There’s also a new remote control that now uses the power of the sun and home Wi-Fi to get a refill which means the end of the hunt for AAA batteries.
