LG Pocket Photo 2.0 to debut at CES 2014

LG Pocket Photo 2.0

LG Electronics will debut a new, smaller Pocket Photo 2.0 mobile printer at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week, and it will feature a number of upgrades including a slimmer design, 313dpi printing, and a total of 30 prints per charge.

The Pocket Photo 2.0, model PD239, connects wirelessly using NFC and Bluetooth, and prints 2 x 3 inch photos from your phone or tablet, and it’s compatible with most Android and iOs devices. The new model will be 4mm thinner than the original, and the app for the device will also offer more editing features for those who want to customize their images before they hit print.

Like the original, the new model will still allow for embedded QR codes in photos, to bring a little interactivity to your printing, and it uses the same Zink heat-activated technology as the original to make the photos more smudge-proof.

LG will sell the Pocket Photo 2.0 in pink, jewel white and lime yellow, and it will be available some time in 2014 in North America. Although no price point is available yet, the original LG Pocket Photo debuted at the 2013 CES and retails for $159, so shoppers can likely expect similar pricing for the new model.
