Kodak has unveiled a brand new smartphone called the Ektra. The name and design of the phone reference Kodak’s original Ektra camera issued way back in 1941. It runs on Android and features a 21 megapixel fast focus camera with a f2.0 aperture. The camera also boasts DSLR functionality and can capture video in 4K. It comes pre-loaded with a number of photography friendly apps like Snapseed, Adobe Lightroom, VSCO and Prisma.

Other spec notables include a 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, room for a microSD card of up to 128GB, a 13 megapixel auto focus front-facing camera and a five inch 1080p display.

This isn’t the first time Kodak has tried their luck at the smartphone game. In 2015 it released the not-so-well-received IM5. But on first glance, this looks to be a more advanced and photographer focussed piece of kit.

The Kodak Ektra will be available in December and costs 449. Head to Kodak’s website to find out more.
