Kodak today launched its camera centric device, the Kodak Ektra in India. The device features a 21 MP f/2.0 camera with OIS, PFAF and dual LED flash. The phone was launched by the former imaging giant in October last year, running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a Mediatek Helio X20 processor. Named after a 35mm camera launched in 1941, the Kodak Ektra is the company’s second such smartphone with a focus on imaging.
Kodak Ektra Specifications
The Kodak Ektra comes with a 5 inch full HD display, with a pixel density of 441 PPI. The camera phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with a stock UI and a multitude of Kodak apps built in.
Powering the Ektra is a deca-core Mediatek Helio X20 SoC, with a tri-cluster architecture and Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. The phone comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, with the ability to expand it further using a microSD card.
The main focus of the Kodak Ektra is on imaging. Not surprisingly, it comes with a very good pair of cameras. On the back, you get a 21 MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture. The rear camera also features Optical Image Stabilisation, Phase Detection Autofocus and dual tone LED flash. You can record up to 4K resolution videos with the phone. On the front, you get a decent 13 MP camera for selfies and video calling.
To help you get the best out of the camera, Kodak has bundled a range of features and apps to let you play around. You get a number of rich image editing features and filters.
Other features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS support. It also comes with a USB Type C port. A 3000 mAh battery powers the Kodak Ektra.

The Kodak Ektra has been priced at Rs. 19,990. The device is available only in black color option. The phone will be sold exclusively on Flipkart from tomorrow, starting at 4PM.
