The most notable aspect of Kodak Ektra is its design language. It flaunts a leather cover with steel rimmed big circular camera module, well crafted frame with metal-finish around the edges and a smooth curvy bump at the bottom. When the device is held horizontally to capture an image, it gives a nice grip reminiscing Kodak's most popular analog cameras.

It houses the proprietary 21MP Kodak camera with non-reflective lens cover, f/2.0 aperture size, OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), dual-tone LED flash, autofocus, PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus), HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K video recording.

The primary camera also boasts intuitive touchscreen with DSLR Dial (having haptic touch), customisable manual mode (with adjustable shutter speed and ISO rating), horizontal two-step shutter release option and a plethora of scene mode selection.

On the front, it houses a standard 13MP shooter, decent enough to get good quality selfie.

Other stipulated features of Kodak Ektra include 5.0-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, Android Marshmallow OS, MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core CPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage (expandable), Type-C USB port and a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging technology.

The Kodak Ektra is expected to release in the US and other select markets in coming weeks.
