Kodak, the iconic camera maker, has introduced a smartphone for the first time. The company has launched an Android-powered phone this week, and it focuses on capturing the pictures.
The phone, namely Kodak Ektra features a physical button, which works only for its camera.
The device also has f/2.0 aperture lens, a retro-style body reminiscent of an old camera leather wrapped around the surface, a curved edge along with a USB type-C port on the side and 32Gb of internal memory.
In a press release, the company said, “Kodak has a rich history in imaging technology, and the launch of this smartphone demonstrates our ongoing commitment to bringing the latest advances in photography to consumers. The original Ektra Camera was launched in 1941 and in its latest reincarnation opens up a world of creative opportunities to all who care about photography.”
Moreover, Kodak has also joined hands with the apps like Snapseed to help the users with editing.
Kodak Ektra has its drawbacks: the processing speed for the pictures is quite slow. Other than this, the device comes with the Android Marshmallow, and it is unclear whether it will upgrade to the latest Android Nougat (v7.0). The phone will soon arrive in the US and then in the other countries for the price of $550.
