Kodak EKTRA Camera-First Smartphone Launches in the United States


Eastman Kodak Company is bringing a U.S. GSM version of the KODAK EKTRA Smartphone to the U.S.

The U.S. launch coincides with a software update addressing requests from photo-enthusiast consumers-including RAW support, improved auto-focus performance, and optimizations to auto-white balance and color saturation.

The KODAK EKTRA has a look-and-feel similar to a DSLR camera experience with a wrist-strap, a dedicated dual-press shutter button, and a large-glass cover on the 21 megapixel/f2.0 aperture lens. The KODAK EKTRA is preloaded with apps including the SNAPSEED photo-editing tool, prints, and the Super 8 app featuring filters and vignettes including EKTACHROME and KODACHROME Films.

Powered by a Media-Tek Helio X20 core processor running the GOOGLE ANDROID system, the KODAK EKTRA also features a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, and a rear-facing camera with the ability to capture 4K video. Scene selection modes ensure images based on the context including HDR, Landscape, Portrait, Macro, Sport, Night-time, Panorama and Bokeh. Manual mode gives access to additional advanced settings and controls, allowing adjustments to exposure, ISO, focus, white balance and shutter speed. GOOGLE SNAPSEED is also pre-loaded for additional image editing and enhancement features.

The KODAK EKTRA Smartphone is available for $399.99, sold unlocked and SIM free at retailers including B&H Photo Video, Best Buy, Amazon and kodakphones.com.
