Can Kodak make its comeback in the market with this smartphone? 

Kodak on Monday launched its photography-centric smartphone Ektra in India, priced at Rs 19,990. It will be available from 18 July, the Ektra smartphone is already available in the US and Europe and is tuned for the best-image quality.

After shutting its iconic camera division in 2012, Kodak surprised everybody by making a comeback with a smartphone last year.

The smartphone has 21-megapixel fast-focus camera sensor with f/2.0 aperture and 13-megapixel front-facing camera with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and f/2.2 aperture.

The custom-built camera app is controlled by an intuitive haptic touch, SLR-style 'Scene Selection Dial', where adjustments are made in real time via a range of settings, including HDR, landscape, portrait, macro, sport, night-time and panorama.

The camera blends high-quality low-light photography, utilising Arcsoft Night Shot technology and a Kodak-certified lens coating that enables more light to reach the sensor and reduces the ISO noise.

The device runs on Helio X20 Deca core processor, that sadly is running on Android Marshmallow OS and includes editing software from Snapseed.
