Camera giant Kodak launched the IM5 — its first Android smartphone last year. However, it failed to impress users owing to its underwhelming performance. Now, the company is all set to launch another phone named as Ektra with 21MP camera.
The new smartphone is named after an innovative camera which was produced by the company back in 1941. With the Ektra, Kodak aims to bring back the old-school camera experience but in a unique way to attract the current generation smartphone users.
Here’s everything you should know about the Kodak’s upcoming Ektra smartphone.
21MP camera for the photography enthusiasts
Kodak’s Ektra is majorly focussed on the imaging department and the 21MP camera (f/2.0 aperture) on it pretty much explains it all. In addition, the Ektra will also feature Optical Image Stabilisation, Phase Detection Autofocus, dual-tone LED flash, and 4K video recording support.
At the front is a stellar 13MP camera for shooting selfies.
In addition to all the standard camera features mentioned above, the Ektra’s camera app offers support for multiple DSLR-like modes such as Auto mode, Portrait, Manual, Sports, Bokeh, Night mode, HDR, Panorama, Macro, and Landscape.
A large camera protrusion at the back
While we may have been complaining a lot about the camera bump seen on most of the smartphones lately, the massive camera bump on the Ektra only adds to its aesthetics. In fact, the bump gives the whole smartphone a slight touch of retro-classic look.
Unique design language
Speaking of aesthetics, the Ektra flaunts a unique design. The faux leather back and metal-looking plastic at the sides look quite convincing. Also, there’s a slight curve at the bottom to balance the smartphone at a surface level (remember the camera protrusion?).
In terms of specifications, the Ektra flaunts a comfortable 5-inch Full HD display. At the heart of the device is a 2.3GHz Helio X20 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It packs 32GB of internal storage space (which is expandable via a microSD card) and draws juice from a 3,000mAh battery.
