Kodak Releases a New Smartphone Aimed at Photographers

As the cameras in smartphones have improved over the years most of us rely increasingly less on dedicated digital cameras to take photos on our travels as the convenience of a smartphone reigns supreme. For those with a keener interest in photography however there isn’t much that can replace a good DSLR camera, at least that was until Kodak released the KODAK EKTRA, a smartphone designed with photographers in mind.

Featuring a 21-megapixel fast focus camera sensor with f2.0 aperture and a 13-mega-pixel front facing camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus PDAF and f2.2 aperture, the phone is attempting to narrow the gap between your typical smartphone and a DSLR.

At the core of the smartphone is its super fast HELIO X20 Decacore processor which will help power the Android Marshmallow operating system. Taking care of the camera will be a custom built app that will allow a range of adjustments in real time, from HDR, Landscape, Night-mode, Sport and more all from a SLR-style selection dial. The phone will start at £449 and be available in Europe later this year.

Key features:

  • 21MP fast focus camera sensor with F2.0, PDAF, OIS, Dual LED Flash
  • 13MP phase detection auto focus front-facing camera with F2.2 PDAF
  • Helio X20 2.3GHz Decacore processor with 3GB RAM
  • 32GB memory, expandable with MicroSD cards
  • 3000mAh, with USB 3.0 Type C fast charger
  • ANDROID 6.0 (Marshmallow)
