HP Inc. Philippines launches Sprocket, its newest and smallest photo printer yet

HP Inc. is introducing its newest and smallest lifestyle printer yet: the Sprocket.

The Sprocket is a portable and pocket-sized printer that users can bring wherever, whenever. No matter what the occasion is, anyone can instantly snap and print by simply connecting the Sprocket to any smartphone via Bluetooth and its accompanying app.

At only 0.17 kg and 4.53 x 2.95 inches, the Sprocket is as compact as a typical smartphone, and is one of HP’s most lightweight devices. It goes hand-in-hand with other tech essentials such as powerbanks and portable flash drives.

The Sprocket’s paper tray can carry 10 pieces of photo paper at one go and is rechargeable through a micro-USB that requires 90 minutes to fill up its battery. Charge and status light indicators are also visible at the left side portion of the device, alongside the reset and power button.

Aside from printing photos, this device also lets the users tweak photos through the HP Sprocket app. It is compatible with both Android (v4.4 and later) and iOS (iOS v8.0 and later) smartphones, and is downloadable through the Google and App stores. It also supports a variety of formats including BMP, GIF, and JPEG, as well as TIFF for iOS devices which means any photo can be printed out with ease, whether grabbed online or taken straight from a phone camera.

In 40 seconds, users can print colorful photos with the use of the HP ZINK technology 2 x 3” photo papers that are smudge-proof and water and tear-resistant1. The ZINK Technology feature uses zero ink and has crystals stored on each paper which can produce colors once heated. The photo papers also come with a peel-and-stick back, perfect for crafting personalized items, gifts, or souvenirs.

“We at HP aim to encourage our users to reinvent the way they capture their experiences. Millennials today belong to a snap happy generation, where they can document their entire lives in just a click of a button. Through the Sprocket, we want them to hold onto those memories in the most convenient, mobile, and personal way,” says Pallasena Viswanath, HP Inc. Philippines managing director.

The Sprocket, which comes in black and white, is now available in the Philippines through Lazada.
