Agree most of the printers require a lengthy connection process and can be quite tricky to use. That’s why many people prefer to use portable photo printers that not only allow you to take excellent photos but also they are easy to carry. Printers from this category leverage wireless printing by using Bluetooth, WiFi or NFC. You shouldn’t be surprised to know there is a portable printer made by Xiaomi. Actually, it is designed by a partner company, Xprint. But we know it’s a common practice for this manufacturer. At this moment, the Xiaomi Xprint Phone Photo Printer aka Xiaomi Portable Bluetooth AR Printer is available for a 35% discounted price tag of $109.99.
The most popular portable photo printers are considered to be the Kodak Dock & Wi-Fi 4×6” Photo Printer, HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer, Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer, and others. But they are overpriced. So if the Xiaomi Portable Bluetooth AR Printer sports corresponding features, it could be the best alternative to the mentioned models
Well, let’s get acquainted with its key features. The Xiaomi Portable Bluetooth AR Printer uses a sublimation printing technology with 256 color levels. It’s based on a CMY3 color fusion with a precise reduction of 16.7 million colors wide color gamut. This product also comes with a Kyocera professional printing head technology, which provides up to 0.087 millimeters of a print head, 54x86mm effective print area, and up to about 300dpi print resolution.
Once the photos are printed, they are automatically covered by a transparent protective film. The Xiaomi Portable Bluetooth AR Printer uses a printing paper produced by a Japanese company, DNP. As a result, the photos can be stored at a room temperature for decades without fading.
All these features sound quite attractive, but the selling point of the Xiaomi Portable Bluetooth AR Printer is the AR photo technology support. This simply means, you can upload any video when printing the photos and sync them. So every time you keep the photo in front of your phone, it will go live. Thanks to the use of this AR engine, the photo recognition response of this printer is less than 280 milliseconds with a tracking speed of up to 120 frames/second.
