Yu announces new pocket-sized printer

Printers are devices that we cannot live without but they have a major drawback – they tend to be somewhat large and heavy devices that you can’t carry around with ease. But what if you had a printer that you could take with you anywhere and print docs at any time? Won’t that be really cool?

This is exactly what the pocket-sized YuPix printer promises it will do for you. The device is made by Yu, a company we haven’t heard of, but we now know it is owned by Micromax. In any case this invention is welcome and you will be even more thrilled if you find out that the YuPix printer has full compatibility with modern smartphones so you can have your pictures printed with it right on the spot. The device measures 2.99 x 6.01 x 0.94 inches (7.59 x 15.27 x 2.39 cm) and weighs just 273 grams. The secret to its size is the cartridge inside, which has an integrated ink ribbon and photo paper, thus greatly reducing the overall size of the printer. A 750 mAh battery powers the device in case you wonder.

After discussing the YuPix printer we should also say a few words about the photos it can print. After all you get a printer to print things, right? Well, the YuPix printer can print digital photos up to a size of 2.1 x 3.4 inches (5.33 x 8.64 cm) at a resolution of up to 291 ppi. The YuPix can also print up to 10 continuous copies and the printed photos are also water- and fingerprint resistant.

The new YuPix printer is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones and can be connected to these devices via Wi-Fi or NFC. In order to start working with it, users must install the YuPix app and then use it to print or edit photos with no need for a computer.

The device will hit stores in India first where it will sell for INR 6999, which is around USD 105.
