The Freestyle, Samsung’s all-new portable screen and entertainment device that displays a crystal-clear image of up to 100 inches in size, is proving a hit in markets that include North America, Latin America and South Korea.
Samsung Electronics started taking preorders for The Freestyle in the U.S. on 4 January, followed by Korea, Latin America, Southeast Asia and Europe. Pre orders for the product has exceeded 10,000 units within the first month of its global launch.
“The Freestyle offers new levels of functionality, and reflects how users are spending their time by allowing them to enjoy high-quality viewing wherever they are, regardless of spatial limitations,” said Executive Vice President Simon Sung from Samsung’s Visual Display Business. “We plan to continue introducing innovative lifestyle displays like The Freestyle to meet the demands of users who want stellar viewing experiences that are also flexible and convenient.”
The Freestyle is gaining attention for its host of innovative features. These include the facts that it weighs in at just 830 grams, is portable enough to carry in one hand, and has the ability to rotate 180 degrees. The Freestyle also offers Smart TV features that are available on Samsung Smart TVs, with built-in streaming services and mirroring and casting features that are compatible with both Android and iOS mobile devices. When it’s not being used to display content, The Freestyle is also able to provide a mood lighting effect with its ambient mode and translucent lens cap.
The Freestyle is also a smart speaker that is capable of analyzing music to pair it with visual effects that can be projected onto walls, floors and anywhere else. What’s more, its 360-degree sound radiation allows customers to enjoy a cinema-quality sound experience no matter where they are. As far as charging, The Freestyle is compatible with external batteries that support USB-PD and 50W/20V output or above. This allows users to take it with them anywhere – whether they are on the move, on a camping trip, or otherwise out and about.
