The Freestyle 2 is also cheaper than the existing model.

Samsung announced an updated portable projector today, the $800 Freestyle 2. It has inbuilt cloud gaming access and more memory, so it should be snappier.

The cylindrical projector hasn’t changed a great deal from the last model. It’s still around the same size and weight (under two pounds) and can project a screen of between 30 and 100 inches.

That makes it perfect to travel with as a portable big-screen console to rival handheld versions. Thanks to Samsung Gaming Hub, the Freestyle 2 has access to the largest cloud gaming services.

Gaming Hub makes the Freestyle 2 even better

Samsung released Gaming Hub last year on TVs, bundling Xbox Game Pass, Amazon Luna, Nvidia GeForce Now, and multiple other game streamers into one central place. Now it’s on a portable projector, which makes cloud gaming possible anywhere.

The Freestyle 2 has an optional battery base, so it can be used to project a 1920×1080 picture on any surface, anywhere. It can also be powered from USB-C power banks, so you’re not tied to the first-party battery.

It’s also running Tizen OS, the operating system used on Samsung’s TVs. That means access to your favorite streaming services, from Disney+ to Netflix.
