Instant Photos On The Go With LG Pocket Photo Printer
Enjoy ‘Inkless’ Photos with Palm Size Printer
Singapore, 21 March 2013 – From the craze of ‘Neo Prints’ to the popularity of Polariod, instant photos continue to hold the nostalgic charm of capturing photo moments with your friends and families. Combining the convenience of mobile photography with smartphones and the fondness for instant photos, LG Electronics introduces LG Pocket Photo Printer — a palm size pocket printer that instantly prints any photo taken from mobile phones using inkless paper.
The nifty device measuring the size of a palm (4.76-inches tall, 2.83-inches wide and 0.94-inches thick) slips comfortably into most pockets and handbags, making it the ideal portable pocket photo printer. This compact gadget takes mobile printing to a new level as it functions on zero ink, meaning that consumers need not worry about ink catridge replacements.
This is made possible with the Zink (Zero Ink) photo paper 2.0 (3 inches by 2 inches), guaranteeing high-quality photos that are printed on the spot. The printer heats up the dye crystals embedded inside the paper, triggering it to change colours accordingly to the photo.

LG Electronics’ new Pocket Photo Printer, which comes in Silver and a metallic finish, allows you to print your photos by transferring them instantly from Android phones via Bluetooth and Near Field Communication (NFC)-tagging connectivity. This printer continues to delight users with its Smart Editing Function available through the LG Pocket Photo App which can be downloaded from Google Play Store.
The Smart Editing function means that each printed photo is customisable with various photo frames for invites, birthday cards and even proposals. Users can apply different styles on the photos by adding filter effects to change the photos’ colour tones.
Consumers can also pick and choose from different partition options for passports, ID cards and business cards.

With the NFC or Bluetooth technology, users can easily tap their Android phones on LG’s Pocket Photo Printer and instant photos will be transferred from a file in the phone to users pocket in just 45 seconds.
Compatible with an Android version 2.2 (Froyo) and above, D-Days (reminder note for special days), messages and even QR Codes can be created with the Pocket Photo App instantly linking to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube when scanned.
The Pocket Photo is available now at all Starhub Retail Outlets at S$249.00 and the Zink Media Photo Paper at S$18.00 for a pouch of 30 sheets.
