Polaroid details new pocket photo printer
The new Polaroid Hi-Print arrives as one of the brand’s smallest offerings yet. These printers first made some noise when Instagram largely went mainstream a few years back. As technology has improved over time, there’s been a large jump in quality, which seems to be coming together today with this new release.
On the technical side of things, Polaroid is leaning on what it called dye-sublimation technology, which it says allows this printer to create the highest-resolution images yet. Photographs are printed on to adhesive paper and heat-sealed in under a minute to protect from water damage.
Polaroid is also expanding functionality within its iOS and Android apps today, bringing additional features like filters, text, stickers, and more. This will allow users to enjoy even great customization within the app prior to printing out images.
Here’s a full breakdown of features and more:
Find it, print it, stick it: it’s that easy with Polaroid Hi-Print 2×3.
