According to the Mobile Print document and your user manual, your printer supports Wi-Fi Direct.

Wi-Fi Direct is a Wireless connection directly from the printer to your computer without the need for a router / network.

Print from your Android, iOS, or Amazon Fire device with the HP Mobile printing app.
