Over at the recently-concluded CES, LG introduced the next generation of its Pocket Photo Printer. This portable printer allows you to print photos from your smartphone wirelessly without the use of any ink cartridge.
The LG Pocket Photo 2.0 is very similar to the first Pocket Photo which we reviewed before in terms of functionality. The main difference is that it’s now slimmer with a rounded edge where the paper comes out, and comes in more colors. It also has a longer battery life now allowing you to print 30 photos in one charge.
Through the use of a downloadable app (iOS, Android, WP8), you can edit your photos before sending it to the printer via Bluetooth of NFC. It uses ZINK or “zero ink” paper which allows printing without any ink cartridge. All the colors are on the paper and the device will heat it to bring out the correct color per pixel. Really handy and fun to use during parties.
It’s not a must-have device but with Filipinos being rather fond of taking selfies or taking Instax photos, it’s really a nice-to-have device for the smartphone user.
We’ll keep you posted on local availability and pricing.
