The pocket photo printer offers high-quality photo prints in just 60 seconds. Since YU YUPIX uses WiFi, it will be faster than other printers that use Bluetooth, says the company. It is a compact printer weighing in at 273 grams and comes with a built-in 750 mAh battery as well. It uses Dye Sublimation technology, offering a printing resolution of 291 dpi and can print 10 continuous copies. The photos printed will be sized 2.1 x 3.4 inch
It uses the cartridge which has Ink Ribbon & Photo Paper Integrated into it, making it water and fingerprint proof. The cartridges would have to be purchased separately when you run out of the box pack, but at present there is no word on the price of the cartridges. Also, it only supports printing of JPEG images

The YU YUPIX is accompanied by an Android App available on Google Play Store – which will be shortly up here – to wireless connect it to your Android smartphone using WiFi Direct or NFC, an iOS app will be available later.
The YU YUPIX Printer comes in blue color and is priced at Rs. 6,999. It will be available from Amazon.in starting from Monday, September 7th, 2015.
In our Opinion, it is rather a good idea to wait until the price of the cartridge is announced – as without the cartridges the YU YUPIX is a useless and expensive doormat.
