Kodak Ektra With DSLR-like Camera To Launch On December 9th!by Sayli Jadhav December 7, 2016
Your phone is not just a phone anymore. It is a calendar, a reminder, almost a personal assistant at times and it’s also the most compact camera. Think about it; there’s so much our phones help us to do with such little effort. Need a torch? No problem! A calculator? Here it is. One major feature for almost everyone is the camera. We’ve all dreamt of going on trips and taking some amazing pictures or the scenic view or just memories spent with friends. This usually happens on the first day or till your camera battery runs out, and you have to face the dilemma to choose between charging your phone or your camera.
Kodak has come up with a solution for this. Kodak unveiled its Ektra earlier this year and is all set to launch it on December 9th in India. Kodak tried its luck on the smartphone’s front with the IM5 but couldn’t do well. The Ektra could break this curse and establish Kodak in the cell phone market too.
The name Kodak makes it really obvious that the phone would be more camera-focused. It comes with a 21MP Fast focus rear sensor and f/2.0 aperture. It also has a PDAF and Dual LED Flash to help you with capturing images in low lighting. The front camera is 13MP with f/2.2 aperture. Now, the exciting part of it! The Camera comes with a DSLR mode that includes: smart auto, Portrait, Bokeh, Night Time, HDR, Panorama, Sports, Marko, Landscape and also allows for 4K videos. For those who are slightly more detailed or particular about the camera settings, you can use the manual mode to adjust exposure, or the Focal length, shutter speed and more.
Coming to the phone aspect of this camera-focused device, it has a 5-inch Full HD screen with a 1080 x 1920 p resolution and 441ppi density. Under the screen is the 2.3GHz Helio X20 deca-core processor paired with a 3GB RAM to handle all your multitasking needs. It also comes with 32GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded with a micro SD Card. There’s going to be plenty of space for those beautiful pictures from your trips or just daily journeys. The battery is a robust 3000mAh and supports type-C Charging.
What makes this even better? It’s like the unicorn of the phone world. You can now order physical printed copies of the picture using a pre-installed app called Print. Yes! You can directly just print from your phone. We’ve all been dreaming about this day for a really long time. You can also use editing apps such as Snapseed that comes pre-installed with this device.
The smartphone has a slight curve, and the DSLR lens has a metal ring to keep it safe and look strikingly stylish. Its unique design and excellent features will definitely give rise to some loyal Kodak phone customers.
Manufactured in the UK, Kodak Ektra will be up for grabs and sold through Deutsche Telekom from January 16th. Although there is no news about Kodak mobile price in India, you can still check it out and get it shipped Amazon, Media Markt, or their official website kodakphones.com.
