You might not hear much about Kodak these days, but the brand still exists -- it even released a new smartphone with a humongous camera in Europe last year. Now, that same phone named after its Ektra camera from the '40s has made its way to the US. As a phone, the new Ektra doesn't really have impressive features with its 5-inch 1080p display, 32GB internal storage, deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor and 3GB of RAM. It also ships with Android Marshmallow instead of Nougat. Ektra's main draw is none other than its 21MP camera (with six-axis image stabilization, no less) that takes up a huge chunk of its leatherette-wrapped back.

The company says the camera, which has optical image stabilization features, has a fully-integrated DSLR dial experience and can shoot 4K videos. Its counterpart front-facing camera is 13 megapixels, and both of them use Snapseed as the default photo-editing app. Seeing as loads of better smartphones have decent camera these days, we're guessing Ektra will appeal to those who want that old-timey Kodak aesthetic the most. If this is something you'd buy, head over to the company's website, where's it's selling the phone for $400 as an unlocked GSM device.
