Kodak Ektra Smartphone

Designed specifically for photographers, the Kodak Ektra has a built-in smartphone feature.

Although the new iPhone 7 may boast its high quality camera and the amazing photographs it can take, it’s still first and foremost a phone. For Kodak, a company that’s been in the camera business since the 1880, these new smartphones and their attempts to emulate what a real camera can do must have gotten on their nerves a bit, as they introduce the Ektra, a professional-quality, photography-frist smartphone.

The design has more in common with Kodak’s classic cameras than modern smartphones, with the phone part seeming more like an afterthought that’s been attached to a really good camera. It features a rear-facing 4K video capable 21-megapixel sensors with a 26.5mm lens, a front-facing 13-megapixel camera, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 3GB of ram, and a 5-inch 1080p display. The iPhone and other smartphones pale in comparison when it comes to photo quality, with its DSLR functionality and creative control right at your fingertips. It’s the perfect camera with a built-in smartphone functionality for capturing those stories that are made in a moment.
