LG has introduced pocket sized printer called LG PD233 in Indian markets with a price tag of Rs. 14,990. Those of you who love to have 'hard copies' of their sweetest memories may consider this ultra-portable photo printer. The device is compatible & ideal for use with your Android or iOS powered phones or tablets. The gadget is so small that it can literally fit in your pockets or the corner of your business suitcase. Dimensions wise, it measures 72.4x120.9x24.0mm and weighs only 212 grams.


The printer connects with your phone either through NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth or USB. The best thing about this printer is that it uses the 'Zink Photo Paper'. This is a special paper that embeds ink in the paper itself and the photos printed using the paper are Smudge-proof, water resistant, tear-resistant.

LG offers a dedicated App on both iOS and Android platforms called 'Pocket Photo App' that lets you manage all your printing job effortlessly. You can quickly create QR codes as well. We've a video that shows the device in action.

@Abhishek Rawal • 29 Jul, 2013 This is an awesome gadget, Very Pocket compatible.
But what about the additional cost of ink refilling & Zink photo paper, which will be very costly.
@Ankita Katdare • 30 Jul, 2013 Amazing. Bluetooth and NFC. What is the average print time of the device?
@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 30 Jul, 2013 OK , I will buy this! I just loved this 😀 And Interested to know the answer to the question of Abhishek.

Well handy and design looks cool too I think if service and speed is apt we have a new gadget of the year here in the market
@Ankita Katdare • 20 Oct, 2013 I was just reading about this LG Pocket Photo Printer
LG Pocket Photo uses ZINK or zero ink technology. Users get colourful ZINK sheets (2x3 inch) with the device. These ZINK sheets themselves carry colors! Therefore, this device needs no ink.
The printer simply heats the dye in the sheets to reproduce colours and deliver prints. These sheets can be easily loaded by opening the device’s back flap.

I checked the price too. It says - an additional pack of 30 ZINK sheets costs Rs 1,099, so the cost per print is about Rs. 37.

@Abhishek Rawal & @Saandeep Sreerambatla I hope your question is answered.
Answering my own question: Depending on the colours in the image, prints take up to 40-50 seconds.
