Xprint portable wireless AR photo printer: design

The Xprint measures just 5.24 x 3.15 x 1.06 inches, which makes it one of the most portable photo printers out there — it should be the perfect fit for an average-sized pocket. In fact, the printer is not much larger than a phablet.

Xprint portable wireless AR photo printer: features and performance

One of the features that jumps off the page in Xiaomi's portable photo printer is its AR function. Augmented reality is technology that allows the elements from the "real" and "digital" worlds to interact.

Here's how it works in the case of Xiaomi's Xprinter:

The printer comes with the associated app. If you use this app to take a photo, together with recording an image, it also records a mini-video of the moment. Once you have printed the photo on the Xprint printer, you can view it through your phone's camera and watch it "come to live". The process does not take long — the video is recorded at 120 frames per second and takes less than half a second.

Print speed

It will take about 60 seconds for the XPrint photo printer to print a photo, so you may need to wait for a minute for the photo printing. And the carton can hold 10 pieces of printing papers at a time.     


The Xprinter lets you have your ready photos in very decent quality — the max. Printing resolution is set at 291 x 294dpi and there are 16 million colors at your disposal. Your printed photo will come out to be 54*86 mm in size. What's more, adopted fully automatic coating technology, the transparent film on surface can prevent the damage from water, light, air, ultraviolet ray, fingerprints and scratch. Together with Japan imported DNP photographic paper, your photos can last up to ten years without color fading.

When you are ready to have your photo printed, you can easily connect the printer to your phone via Bluetooth. Xprinter also supports NFC connection, which makes things even quicker. The printer runs on the familiar Android 5.0.
