LG's range of inkless smartphone printers updated with LINE character motifs

If you’re a fan of LINE’s unnervingly adorable characters, you’ll be pleased to know that LINE and LG got together to bring a new LG Pocket Photo inkless mobile printer, decorated with LINE motifs. The special edition inkless smartphone photo printer is available in Singapore, at all Challenger outlets, with a retail price of S$229 (~RM694).

The LG Pocket Photo is a small, pocket-sized mobile photo printing device that does not require ink cartridges. Using its proprietary ZINK technology, the Pocket Photo uses heat to activate the color-forming dye crystals found inside its unique printing paper. It can print 30 images on a single battery charge, and pictures will be rendered at 313dpi – sharper than what the human eye can perceive.

As a smartphone printing device, the LG Pocket Photo requires its Pocket Photo app to work. The app contains other editing features, on top of wirelessly connecting the Pocket Photo printer to your smartphone. On the app are filter effects and frame augmentation options, and the ability to embed QR codes into your photos to connect a physical photograph to an online community.
