Pocket photo printers may well be the next gadget trend. Otherwise, how would one explain the fact that two of China’s leading gadget makers have released two new portable printer models almost simultaneously. Just a few days after Xiaomi have released their new generation mini photo printer, Huawei have followed with the Huawei Portable Photo Printer. What new features does the printer come with and is it the new must-have? Let’s find out.

Compact and lightweight design
Huawei’s new printer looks more like a power bank than a printer — measuring just 4.72 x 3.15 x 0.88 inches and weighs less than 195 grams. The printer is rectangle in shape and is made in clean white color. It is a very nice looking gadget and would definitely be a stylish addition to your portable gadget pack.

There is a single power button on the printer used for switching the device on and off, a charging port and a Bluetooth indicator.

Easy printing, AR capabilities, 23 photos per charge
Huawei’s portable printer works on Zink inkless printing technology and Bluetooth connection. The transmission speed is an impressive ten second and printing time in under one minute. The printer supports Huawei Share one-click printing, so you will be able to print your photos instantly without installing any apps or additional software. The printer is compatible with Android 8.0 OS and above as well as iOS 10.0.2 and above phones.

Despite the printer’s miniature size, it sports a ten-piece carton capacity and can produce printed photos sized 50mm x 76mm — but you also have the option to change settings and alter the size of the photos you need printed. With the 500mAh battery, the printer can print 23 photos at a time before a recharge is required.

The Huawei Portable Photo Printer also comes with a few interesting extras.
First, the photo printer can also print DIY business cards and comes with a variety of templates. It’s a nice feature to have onboard as you will be able to print a business card practically on-the -go without complicated editing tools. You will also be spending quite a bit on the services of a printing agency.

Another interesting feature is the printer’s ability to print AR (Augmented Reality) photos. You will simply need to print out the key frames of the video and then scan them with your mobile phone for AR effects. This is a fun feature to have on your printed photos — plus, this opens up doors to a variety of other uses for your printed materials: they can be used as edutainment for children, promotional materials, home decor, etc.

The verdict
So, is the Huawei Portable Photo Printer special and should you spend almost $90 to print your photos on-the-go?

Let’s take a look at the printer’s key features once again:
● compact size, lightweight
● 10-second transmission
● 1-minute printing time
● prints 23 photos without a recharge
● supports Huawei Share one-click printing
● prints DIY business cards and comes with several templates
● prints photos with AR effects
●​ compatible with both Android and iOS systems

The Huawei Portable Photo Printer’s $158 price tag (original price) puts in a whole different price category compared to the earlier released MIJIA Photo Printer by Xiaomi priced at a bit over $74. But, you don’t get AR effects as well as a few other features you will find on the Huawei Portable Photo Printer. Depending on how important it is for you to have your digital photos come into tangible life, the Huawei Portable Photo Printer may be either a great deal or an overpriced hyped up gadget you will never use more than a few times.

If you love scrapbooking, enjoy DIY projects or are working on an album of you most liked Instagram posts, the Huawei Portable Photo Printer would be the perfect addition to your gadget family. If this is the case, you are in luck: Huawei’s new AR mini photo printer is now available n GearBest with 43% off bringing the price down to only $89.99.
