Kodak Ektra Smartphone

With Samsung’s seemingly unsolvable battery explosion issues and the subsequent folding of their production and sale of Galaxy Note 7 phones, there probably hasn’t been a better time to get a foot in the door of the Android-based smartphone industry. And that makes long-time photography giant Kodak’s announcement of their first foray into smartphones particularly well-timed – especially for the increasingly large consumer base who appears to value the quality of their phone’s camera above all else.

As a phone, the Kodak Ektra is impressive. It houses a Helio X-20 Decacore Processor, 3 gigabytes of RAM, and a 32 gigabyte hard-drive (with an SD slot for drive expansion), but the real selling point is in the onboard cameras and their capabilities. The main camera shoots in 21 megapixels and features Kodak’s non-reflexive lens coating, whereas the front-facing camera shoots in an impressive 13 megapixels. The cameras also feature 4K video capture, optical image stabilization, Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), and HDR Imaging. The phone’s onboard software even comes with an intuitive touchscreen DSLR Dial, scene mode selection, horizontal two step shutter release, and a manual customization mode. And that can all be accessed via the 5″ full HD IPS display protected by super-durable Gorilla Glass. You can register for information yet to be announced as the brand releases it on their site.
