Take your pictures from on-screen pixels to real prints

Looking at pictures on a smartphone screen is fun, but sometimes you just can't beat having a real print in your hand. LG's PD233 Pocket Photo mobile printer delivers high-quality photo prints and offers the convenience of wireless connectivity, making it the ideal companion for your Android or iOS® smartphone. This tiny device measures just 2-7/8" x 4-3/4" x 15/16", and weighs in at a mere 7-1/2 ounces. It can easily fit in the palm of your hand or inside a jacket pocket when not in use, and its built-in rechargeable battery means you can use it anywhere without plugging into an AC outlet. Simply download LG's free app to your smartphone, then sync it to the Pocket Photo to begin printing bright, colorful 2" x 3" photos that are perfect for sharing or displaying.

I got it about five business days, it doesn't need the ink to print, and it is small enough and light to bring to everywhere. Just need to connect to IPhone, so convenient!!

Product Research


Overview: The LG Pocket Photo (PD233) is an ultra-compact photo printer for use with your iPhone or Android smartphone. It prints full-color, 2x3-inch borderless photos onto special ZINK (Zero Ink) paper. Photos are printed with a resolution of 640 x 1224 dots in approximately 40 seconds. The printer is only 2-7/8" x 4-3/4" x 1" in size, and weighs 7-1/2 ounces, so you can take it virtually anywhere.

ZINK: The Pocket Photo comes with a 10-pack of 2x3-inch ZINK paper for LG. A 30-pack of paper is sold separately. Prints come out dry to the touch, and are smudge-proof, water-resistant, and tear-resistant.

Note: ZINK paper made for other manufacturer's devices does not work with the LG Pocket Photo.

Compatibility: The LG Pocket Photo is compatible with select iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) running version 5.1 and above, and Android devices running version 2.2 (Froyo) and later.

Bluetooth: The Pocket Photo prints wirelessly from your compatible device via Bluetooth. The unit is compatible with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and has a range of approximately 33 feet (10 meters).

Pocket Photo App: The LG Pocket Photo app lets you connect your compatible smartphone to the printer to print your stored photos. In addition to printing, you can make edits to your photos, such as cropping, rotating, or adding text, or applying a color filter. Photos can be shared with others on Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks by creating a QR code. The Pocket Photo app is compatible with Android version 2.2 (Froyo) and later, and iOS version 5.1 and above.

NFC (Near-Field Communications): Tap your NFC-enabled smartphone to the NFC sticker on the top of the printer for an instant connection to the printer. Near-field Communications is only available in select Android smartphones.

Status LED: The Pocket Photo has a side-mounted LED to indicate the printer's status. It will glow red or green to indicate charging level. It will also glow or flash white when communicating via Bluetooth with the smartphone.

Power Requirements: The Pocket Photo runs on a built-in 500mAh Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery. The battery charges in approximately 1.5 hours and provides enough power for about 20-25 prints. You can charge the battery, or operate the Pocket Photo, by connecting the printer to AC power with the supplied Travel Charger, or by USB power (5 volts DC/1 amp) from your computer.
