Samsung announces brand new Freestyle projector at CES 2023
- Samsung has announced the 2023 version of The Freestyle portable projector.
- The short throw projector includes three lasers and features such as Edge Blending, where you can combine images from two projectors into one.
- There’s no word yet on a release date or price for The FreeStyle 2023.
At CES 2022, Samsung announced The Freestyle, a portable projector with a circular design that could project images on a wall, a table, or even on a ceiling. It also had the same operating system inside Samsung’s smart TVs for streaming Netflix, Disney Plus, and more. The reviews of this projector were a bit mixed, as many reviewers thought that other portable projectors had more features at a smaller cost. Samsung didn’t let that deter it. At CES 2023, Samsung announced the Freestyle 2023, a redesigned version of the projector that adds several improvements to the formula.
Instead of a small can-like design, the Freestyle 2023 is tower-shaped, which Samsung says makes it blend in better in any type of room. Inside, the projector now has three lasers, similar to other ultra-short-throw projectors that are becoming more popular as large TV replacements. It also has Edge Blending technology, which can connect two Freestyle 2023 projectors together for a brighter, wider projection.
The Freestyle 2023 model still has Samsung’s smart TV OS installed, and it allows owners to interact with certain special apps, either by touching the projected image on a wall or another surface or by gestures. Samsung says this will allow for interaction with metaverse-like content.
The new projector will also support auto keystone, autofocus, and more. At the time of this writing, we still don’t know the price or release date of the Freestyle 2023, but we will get that info from Samsung as it becomes available.
