By now, you’re probably all well-aware of the messaging app LINE and it’s adorable bunch of characters. But whether you love Brown, Choco or Cony, there’s no denying that the devices displaying your LINE love should be as functional as they are cute. That’s why LG Electronics has teamed up with LINE to release a brand new design for Pocket Photo, the inkless mobile printing device!
The portable and super-sleek LG Pocket Photo is one of the smallest mobile photo printing devices in the market. It prints pictures rendered at a crystal clear 313dpi — perfect for sharing or displaying. After downloading and installing the free Pocket Photo editing app, users can wirelessly connect their smartphones or tablets and begin printing immediately. The accompanying Pocket Photo app also lets users experiment with a wide range of customisation options, from filter effects to frame augmentation features.
If you’re wondering how it’s possible for such a tiny printer to exist, the Pocket Photo uses the proven ZINK® technology, eliminating the need for expensive ink cartridges, ribbons or toner. This technology utilises heat to activate the necessary colour-forming dye crystals imbedded in each sheet of paper. Compared with conventional printing processes, ZINK’s inkless paper system actually preserves images much longer and produces less smearing. The Pocket Photo can even print 30 photos on a single charge, so you can snap away all-day anytime, anywhere!
LG Pocket Photo (model: PD239SF), $229, available from today onwards at all Challenger outlets. LG.com.sg
