Kodak announced an Android phone dubbed the Kodak Ektra that borrows design and looks from the 1941 Ektra camera. Kodak expresses that the phone will be specifically more of a camera and not a phone. Kodak mentions that Kodak Ektra is a photography first, professional quality smartphone that has been built by Bullitt.
Just as mentioned is a photography first and that’s why it sports a primary camera of 21 megapixels. Kodak Ektra beats both iPhone 7’s and Google Pixel’s primary camera.
