Polaroid Mint 2-in-1 digital camera has built-in photo printer

Polaroid is back with two new products, the Polaroid Mint 2-in-1 instant digital camera and the Polaroid Mint pocket printer. The camera is exactly what it sounds like: a digital camera that has a built-in photo printer, making it possible to save images to a microSD card but also produce small instant prints. The new pocket printer, meanwhile, works with a mobile app to rapidly print photos.

The Polaroid Mint 2-in-1 instant digital camera features a 16-megapixel sensor, as well as a microSD card slot that supports capacities up to 256GB. The camera also sports an automatic LED flash and a selfie timer; though the camera doesn't have a front-facing display, it does have a selfie mirror for lining up shots.

The camera itself is available in yellow, black, white, red, and blue colors; it can also print photos in full color, black and white, or sepia. The camera supports adding frames to photos before printing them, which is achieved by pressing the shutter button. This model is available now for $99.99 USD.

In addition, the company has launched its new Polaroid Mint instant pocket printer, a portable instant printer that produces 2x3-inch glossy color photos in less than 60 seconds. The device is small enough to fit in a pocket and promises enough battery life to print 50 photos before needing recharged.

This model obviously doesn't include the digital camera portion of the equation, but that doesn't matter for most users who already have a smartphone. Instead, users download the Polaroid Mint app and use that to print digital images from the photo with the printer. As with other modern instant printers, the pocket printer uses ZINK's ink-free Zero Ink tech.

The Polaroid Mint instant pocket printer is available now for $129.99 USD.
