Samsung has announced the Freestyle Gen 2 projector with Gaming Hub capability, the successor to last year’s first-gen Freestyle projector. The premise is simple – as long as you have a stable internet connection and space for projects, you can stream content or play thousands of game titles wherever you see fit. Samsung’s Gaming Hub supports Xbox Game Pass, Nvidia GeForce NOW, Amazon Luna, Utomik, Antstream Arcade and Blacknut game streaming platforms.

The Freestyle 2 projector is compatible with many Bluetooth controllers and comes with increased memory for a more fluid experience. You also get a Samsung SolarCell remote that uses sunlight to charge the battery. You can also charge via USB-C.
The rest of the spec sheet is similar to last year’s first-gen Freestyle. The projector can measure from 30 to 100 inches and the resolution is 1080p. There’s HDR10+ support and a 100,000:1 contrast ratio. You also get 360-degree audio with a 5W speaker system, Tizen OS and Bixby Voice assistant. I/O is limited to one micro HDMI and one USB-C port.

The neat thing about the Freestyle 2 is that you can simply point it at a wall and the projector will automatically adjust content output so there’s no need to mess with alignment or manual keystone correction.
The Samsung Freestyle Gen 2 is up for pre-order from the Samsung US Store for $800.
Shipments are expected to begin September 1. Pre-orders are already open and get a free projector case.
