Kodak Ektra is the company’s latest attempt to revive the camera smartphones Nokia once pioneered. Ektra is a unique mixture of “photography innovation and DSLR functionality“, it comes with a back made of faux leather and with metal-like but plasticky frame. The phone feature a 5-inch Full HD display, it is powered by MediaTek’s Helio X20 deca-core processor that’s juiced up by a 3,000 mAh battery.
In addition, Kodak Ektra has 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory storage (microSD card slot included), a 21MP main camera at the back (a hump) with f2.0 aperture, optical image stabilization and 4K video recording. The front-facing camera is a 13MP selfie snapper. Whats cool about this gadget is that thanks to its leatherette bundle of accessories, it looks very stylish and it can be carried around like a camera strapped to your neck or shoulder. Also there’s a Camera app that comes with a rotary menu and lots of visual effects, filters and so much more.
The Kodak Ektra will go on sale later this year (December) in the UK for £450 and if the sales go accordingly, it might hit other markets as well.
