The Eastman Kodak Company, commonly known as Kodak which is an American technology company has entered the modern photographic world. On Thursday, the company launched an Android based phone called “Kodak Ektra”.

The device is available for purchase in the U.K and will soon be in the U.S market priced at $550 ( Approximately Rs. 80,842. ).

The device consists a 21 megapixel back camera and a 13 megapixels front camera. It’s packed into a retro-style body reminiscent of an old Kodak camera. It features a big f/2.0 aperture lens, leather wrapped around the surface and a curved edge, which makes it easier to hold.

The device also has a physical camera button on the frame to take pictures and a wheel to change the settings.

However, not everything is retro. There’s a USB “type C” port on the side, so that one can easily port photos onto your computer. It also comes with 32GB of storage, which means users won’t have to transfer photos over right away.

At the same time, users can still surf the web, download and use apps, make calls and do all of the things you would with an Android device.

As of now, Kodak Ektra runs its mobile operating system, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but it’s unclear whether users will be able to upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Kodak partnered with apps like Snapseed to make editing on the device easy, too.
