LAS VEGAS--Using NFC technology (as well as Bluetooth) to receive photos from your LG smartphone, the LG Pocket Photo is a mobile printer that's compact and stylish.

Though there are no plans yet to bring the device to the U.S., it has been available in South Korea since September. In addition to orange, it comes in silver and pink.
The printer measures 4.76 inches tall, 2.83 inches wide, and 0.94 inch thick. It prints out 2x3-inch photos.
Aside from owning an LG handset with NFC, users will also have to download the LG Pocket Photo app. The app can take photos using the phone's camera, edit pictures, and if you want, it can also generate QR codes to print out.
To print photos, the device uses Zink, or Zero ink, paper technology. The printer heats up the dye crystals embedded inside the paper, triggering it to change colors corresponding to the photo.
