Today, Kodak is back and they did it by creating a new phone that's named after their iconic 35 mm camera, the Ektra.
This photography centric phone is housed in a body with metal looking plastic and faux leather back cover design. The Kodak Ektra is equipped with a 5 inch FHD screen, Helio X20 deca core chip, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage, and large (for a 5 inch phone) 3,000 mAh of battery capacity.

The special thing about this phone is the camera, of course. The Kodak Ektra, looks like a camera, designed like an analog camera, and has a capable camera sensor inside. It sports a 21 MP camera w/ f/2.0 lens, OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), PDAF and dual tone LED flash for stills and 4K video recording. In front, Kodak placed a 13 MP camera for selfies.
This device also comes with a lot of image editing features that includes nostalgic grains, vignettes and Super 8 filters.
