Samsung Freestyle Gen 2 is cheaper and faster than its predecessor
The most notable improvement on the Samsung Freestyle Gen 2 is the bigger memory that results in snappier performance when navigating on the Tizen interface of the device. There is also a new gaming hub that allows you to stream your titles from Xbox or through Nvidia's platform. You can even pair up two Freestyle Gen 2 projectors and output content up to 150 inches wide.
Samsung's Freestyle Gen 2 projector features auto-leveling and autofocus operations. This makes it very convenient as you don't need to fiddle with the other controls when setting up. Furthermore, users get the option to resize the output between 30 and 100 inches (2.54 m) in full-HD resolution and maximum brightness level at 230 lumens (ANSI).
Similar to the original Freestyle, the Gen 2 has the same stand-type design that you can position easily position on ceilings along with 360-degree speakers wrapping the projector can. Alternatively, the battery base accessory enables you to bring the Freestyle Gen 2 on travel even with no AC sources. Plus, the projector gets a micro-HDMI port in addition to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and voice assistants compatibility.
