Oprah has named the Samsung Freestyle among the things to gift this holiday season

Samsung Electronics announced that The Samsung Freestyle, a portable smart screen launched earlier this year is included in 2022 list of Oprah’s Favorite Things to gift this holiday season.

The Oprah’s Favorite Things annual list is a must have holiday shopping guide with the most decadent desserts, ingenious gadgets and finest finds in home, fashion and beauty. This marks the fifth time a Samsung TV has been selected, with The Freestyle joining The Serif, The Frame, Q7FN QLED TV and most recently, The Terrace in previous years.

This year’s list features a variety of wonderful items for you and your loved ones, most of which have been selected from small businesses. The Freestyle is available for purchase in the Oprah’s Favorite Things gift guide exclusively in Amazon’s store as well as via the Amazon shopping app for customers to conveniently shop anytime. As Oprah says,“Point onto any wall to turn it into a big screen. You can use your favorite streaming apps from it, and it’s got powerful speakers, just like a movie theater.”

Since the Freestyle was introduced in Kenya in April, it has drawn great interest from young Kenyans as well as corporate clients who are keen on the flexibility that the portable smart screen offers. “We have seen the uptake of the Freestyle locally, mainly among our younger consumers as they seem to like it because they can use it for different aspects of their life like watching movies with friends and family, presentations in schools/offices as well as ambient lighting for parties” said Samsung East Africa’s Head of Consumer Electronics Division Mr. Sam Odhiambo. He further went on to add “The second category that has contributed to the purchase of the Samsung Freestyle is Corporate clients who are replacing their old projectors. The Freestyle offers the advantage of portability hence allowing them to move it from one room to another for presentations coupled by a seamless connection from laptops and phones. We are hopeful that even more young and Tech enthusiast consumers will want to purchase The Freestyle, all we can say is watch this space.”

The Freestyle offers flexibility that lets users watch TV, enjoy movies and even have a lightshow wherever they go. The Freestyle is a portable display, smart speaker and ambient light all rolled into one lightweight, portable device. Its versatile cradle allows rotation of up to 180 degrees, enabling users to show high-quality video anywhere — tables, floors, walls or even ceilings — no separate screen required. With the optional battery base and case (sold separately), The Freestyle provides entertainment everywhere, with no limitations.

The Freestyle is a portable entertainment device that provides the ultimate versatility by letting users take it in anywhere,” said Stephen Coppola, Senior Director, Lifestyle TV Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “The Freestyle is a fun and adaptable portable display that can be used in many creative ways. On the ceiling before bed? Outside on the fence while roasting treats? The sky is the limit!”
