Micromax-owned Yu has launched a new gadget called the YuPix. As the name suggests, it is a smart mobile printer that lets you print photos from your smartphone. It is priced at Rs 6,999, and will go on sale from Monday onwards via Amazon India.
The YuPix is quite a compact device measuring just 2.99×6.01×0.94 inches, and weighs 273 grams. It is also powered by a 750mAh battery. The printer uses a unique cartridge, which has an integrated ink ribbon and photo paper.
As far as its photo printing capabilities are concerned, the YuPix can print digital photos up to a size of 2.1×3.4 inches at a resolution of 291ppi. It can print up to 10 continuous copies, and the printed photos are water and fingerprint resistant.
The printer is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones and can be connected via Wi-Fi or NFC. One needs to install the YuPix app, which you can use to edit photos and print without the need for a computer.
It is interesting to see Yu adding a unique device to its portfolio that includes smartphones, and a YuFit smartband as well. The company also has a launch event scheduled next week on September 8, where it is expected to unveil a new smartphone.
