Kodak has found the answer to the ultimate phone-camera mashup, the new Kodak Ektra.
Kodak was once one of the biggest names in photography in the world. But with the rise of the digital camera, the company failed to adapt and eventually lost popularity. About a little more than a decade later, camera phones became a hit, and the digital camera seemed obsolete. However, the American photography powerhouse is back with the answer, the all new Kodak Ektra.
The Kodak Ektra has already been released in the UK, and will be coming to the US and the rest of the world in the upcoming months. Whether it is a smartphone with a very powerful digital camera, or a digital camera with a smartphone attached is not clear, but it’s specs speak for themselves.
When it comes to looks, Kodak truly kept it traditional, which makes it look retro-great. It resembles an old school camera, and is wrapped with leather all around with a curved edge.
The camera part of the phone has the power of 21 megapixels, making it one of the most powerful cameras ever incorporated into a phone. It also features a big f/2.0 aperture lens, and a 13 megapixel front camera.
The Ektra has type-C USB ports on both sides, and comes with 32GB internal memory, making it easier to directly edit photos and videos on your phone. Several testing testimonials have reported that the photo quality of the Kodak Ektra is impressive and unlike any other quality they have seen by a phone, which makes it perfect for photographers and selfie-addicts.
Don’t forget that you can also use it like a regular phone as it has all the features of anything on the market.
