The Sonic Mini 8K is Phrozen's highest-resolution 3D printer ever. The company has marketed the new 3D printer to both casual users and professionals who desire high-quality and precisely-detailed 3D prints. The device is available for pre-order from October 20.

Phrozen has revealed its new 3D printer, the Sonic Mini 8K. 3D Printing Industry has reported that Phrozen boasted that the new 3D printer is the highest-resolution printer the manufacturer has ever conceived at resolutions up to 22 microns and 1152 PPI. Consequently, the Sonic Mini 8K targets customers who wish to craft finely-detailed and exceptionally accurate 3D objects. A newly designed resin, Phrozen Aqua-Gray 8K Resin, was created to facilitate the printing of these 3D objects at 8K resolution. The company has announced this resin to complement the Sonic Mini 8K.

Phrozen was established in Taiwan in 2016 and has since released a wide range of 3D printers that target a global audience. In June 2021, the manufacturer issued its first 8K-capable 3D printer, the Sonic Mega 8K. The Sonic Mega 8K was part of the company's Sonic Series which mainly consisted of large-format 3D printers. However, the Sonic Mini and Sonic Mini 4K were also designed for budget-conscious consumers.

The Sonic Mini 8K 3D printer attempts to attract both casual and expert users. The CEO of Phrozen has supported this statement by arguing that the new 3D printer is accessible to hobbyists via its large 7.1-inch LCD and experts can appreciate its very precise and professional 3D prints.

The new 3D printer is average-sized with dimensions of 290 x 290 x 420 mm and weighs 15 kg. Furthermore, the Sonic Mini 8K has a build volume of 165 x 72 x 180 mm with a 7.1-inch LCD and USB connectivity at the front. The device prints at a relatively fast speed of up to 80 mm/hr. Pre-orders for the Sonic Mini 8K 3D printer start at US$349.99 on October 20.
