A French start-up has developed a new smartphone case that can print selfies from the phone itself in a jiffy.

The company called Prynt recently presented its smartphone case, which includes a built-in printer.

The case is connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth and can produce a photo in about 50 seconds, RT.com reported.

The developers say their case will soon be printing pictures in just 30 seconds.

“At the moment, only one sheet of paper can fit in the case. However, this will soon be increased to up to 30 pieces,” Prynt CEO Clement Perrot said.

Prynt has been working on the new case since January this year and is planning to launch the smartphone case at the beginning of 2015.

The case was developed for four-inch screen smartphones, but the company plans to make models for larger devices in the future.

The smartphone case has been priced at USD 99, the report said.

If a user takes a snap using the Prynt app, it will record a video of the moment before and after they click the photograph.
