Xiaomi is no longer a little-known Chinese brand. The tech company has been best known for producing affordable high-powered smartphones. What many consumers don’t know is that Xiaomi has a wide range of products. Its latest innovation is a printer that generates images that can be seen in augmented reality using the smartphone. When printing, a code is generated that can be read by the mobile phone from three to 60 seconds to the printed image.

The printer’s specs
The printer is in the process of crowdfunding on a site already well-known by Xiaomi fans, YouPin. The name of the device is Jiyin Gramophone Photo Printer. It is compact at 20.5 x 12.4 x 8.5 cm in size and weighs only 1.4 kg. So far, it is only available in China for $100 (¥699) and, according to Xiaomi, can generate up to 40 photos with 300 dpi. Obviously, there are various themes to create more interesting photos, like puzzle effects, effects for additional texts, and much more.
To ensure product quality, Xiaomi stated that it has used a differentiated coating that is fade-proof, a quite common effect in photographs on traditional papers. It also promises to remove oxidation and fingerprints, to facilitate not only preservation but also ease of handling. The Pocket Photo Printer is not the first Xiaomi printer of this type.
An innovative tool to print photos
Although it is not a great revolution, it is still a cool idea with a rather innovative effect. While launching its various products, Xiaomi maintains its investments in the smartphone sector, bringing news also to mobile phones. The fourth-largest manufacturer in the world at the moment, Xiaomi recently registered a patent for a smartphone with an extendible screen, which can be expanded 100%.
This novelty comes a few months after the presentation of the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha, a smartphone with a surround screen, which also brought a 108MP camera and Snapdragon 855 Plus.
