Yu, the Micromax-owned company that has been selling online-only smartphones and even a couple of fitness accessories since quite a long time now, has decided to venture out into more territories now. It has released a wireless printer named YuPix which prints photographs instantly, and costs just Rs 6999.
The new Yu YuPix compact printer is being sold already via Amazon which seems to be its exclusive seller in India, just like it is to all the products manufactured by the company. Think of this product as an old school Polaroid camera which prints photographs for you without any hassles.
You can capture a beautiful shot on your Android or iPhone, edit it in the YuPix’s official app (Android only) and command it to issue a print instantly. Your prints will be of 2.1 x 3.4-inch size however, which is sort of a downside. Their resolution will be 291DPI, while their printing time will be 60 seconds.
Weighing in at 270gms, this Yu device connects to your Android or iOS devices via Wi-Fi or NFC. It apparently uses Dye Sublimation technology for printing your photographs.
The gadget has been revealed to feature a cartridge that does not need a cleaning roll, while it even has an integrated ink ribbon and photo paper. The battery of the YuPix is a 750mAh rechargeable unit. Its cartridge is also on sale right now through Amazon in exchange of Rs 649.
The Yu YuPix compact printer – referred to by the company as a smart pocket printer – can be grabbed now via Amazon at Rs 6999. Its Android app is available for download through the Google Play store, and while it also works with iOS devices, there is no app for them.
