BERLIN — Polaroid’s new Snap camera that prints instant photos without ink is so hot right now, it could catch on fire — and it’s not even out yet.

Snap’s coolest feature is that it can instantly print pictures you take using an ink-free printing system. Polaroid says that “the key to the ink-free system is the patented ZINK Paper, an advanced composite material embedded with dye crystals and a protective polymer overcoat that uses heat to activate and colorize these crystals.” This feature lets the camera print “full-color, high quality, long-lasting and smudge-proof images without ink cartridges, ribbons or toner.”

The photos are 2 inches x 3 inches in size — sometimes also called wallet size — which is a bit smallish but big enough for a quick, printed memory.

If you wish, you can have the photo printed in a larger size later, as Polaroid Snap takes 10-megapixel photos and has a microSD slot holding memory cards with up to 32GB of capacity. The camera has several simple presets — color, black and white and vintage — a selfie timer, and a photo booth mode, which takes six photos in 10 seconds.

Polaroid Snap will be available in four colors — black, white, red and blue — in the fourth quarter of 2015 for $99.
