Home viewing devices, such as projectors, appear to be increasingly in demand.

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA — The trend of watching from home seems to be increasingly enjoyed by many people, especially during the pandemic. This makes watching devices from home start to be seen, one of which is the projector.

Samsung Electronics Co.’s new portable projector, which was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week, sold out in South Korea as well as overseas in the pre-order session. Pre-orders for the device, which ran from January 4-10 in North America, are currently on hold after the initial stock of 3,600 devices sold out.

Consumers in South Korea will also have to wait until this week when pre-orders resume, adding that they will start pre-orders in other major markets, including Europe and Latin America, next week. Quoted Yonhap, Monday (17/2/2022), Samsung’s new product called The Freestyle is an entertainment device, light, and portable screen, especially aimed at Generation Z and the millennial generation.

Without the need for a split screen and a stand that rotates up to 180 degrees, the device allows users to view video anywhere from the table to the ceiling. The device was first introduced during the keynote address of Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman and CEO Han Jong-hee at the global technology trade show in Las Vegas on January 4.

The Freestyle, which will officially go on sale later this month, is packed with features that allow it to automatically adjust the screen to any surface at any angle and deliver a crystal-clear picture and cinema-quality sound experience, the company said. The device also supports Smart TV features through partnerships with global OTT services such as Netflix and Disney+. When not being used as a projector, the Freestyle can transform into a lighting device thanks to its ambient mode and see-through lens cap.
