Kodak announced its own smartphone called Ektra
The Kodak brand is back to life as the Eastman Kodak and the Bullitt Group introduces a smartphone built with the company’s expertise.
The Kodak Ektra is the first handset to carry the Kodak brand. It almost a reincarnation of the former Ektra cameras back in the 1940s. Its design is similar to its great grandfather with a large assembly of lens and a dedicated shutter button. It uses a Sony Exmor RS sensor (either IMX230/IMX338) at 21MP with a dual-LED flash. Of course, Kodak made sure that the photography experience is similar to traditional cameras especially with the UI and manual controls.
It’s powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It’s got 4G LTE and the latest USB Type-C as well.
