Snap Pixy is the first drone camera from the Snapchat creator.

The Snap Pixy price starts at $229 (~₹17,548).

Pixy, Snap’s first flying Snapchat camera, has been unveiled. Pixy pictures and films may be utilized with Snapchat and other apps as well. 12MP photos, 2.7K movies at 30FPS, 16GB storage, 101-gram weight, USB-C connection, and changeable battery are among the Pixy’s primary features.

To begin with, the photographs and movies you take with Pixy may be modified with other applications on your phone or even transferred to a computer. The photos are 12-megapixels in size, with 2.7K definition video clips at 30 frames per second. Although Pixy shoots in landscape format by default, the Snapchat app includes a cropping tool for converting the images to portrait orientation.

You get 16GB of storage on Pixy. You may always use a connected or wireless method to transfer the onboard files/data to a phone/PC. Wireless connection includes Bluetooth BLE and 5GHz WiFi AC.

The drone itself weighs 101 grams (with the battery) and measures 131.7mm x 106mm x 17.6mm in size. As a result, it is relatively light and compact. You are likely to find it cute because of such features and the yellow hue.

It is reportedly easy to use and works without a controller. In case you are wondering, it is compatible with both iOS and Android phones.

On top of that, there’s a silver-colored dial that allows you choose from a number of pre-programmed flying courses, like Orbit (circles around you), Hover (tracks you from your current location), and Reveal (from a set distance, it will fly back to you). You may also create new flight trajectories from within the Snapchat app. Pixy, on the other hand, can only move for up to 60 seconds within a range of 2 to 3 meters.

There are four rotors (with protective casings) that keep the object flying around the dial. Pixy is now rated to fly for 5-8 flights, depending on the flight modes you select. When it needs to be charged, you can either swap out the battery (which is easily removable but must be purchased separately) or charge it using a USB-C socket on the body. Snap says that you can recharge your phone to 80% of its full capacity in 20 minutes and 100% in 40 minutes. You should be aware that Pixy is not water resistant and should not be exposed to “rain, snow, or submerged in water,” among other things.


As already mentioned, Snap has released the Pixy in the US and France at $229 (~₹17,548). The batteries cost $19.99 (~₹1531) a piece. You can order a portable dual battery charger priced $50 (~₹3832). The company notes the Pixy will be on sale until stock lasts. There is no word about its availability in other markets like India.
