You might remember Kodak as the company that used to create some great cameras and film back in the day but times have changed and Kodak has tried to change with them. The company has been trying its hand at making smartphones for the past couple of years. Kodak unveiled the Ektra smartphone in October this year and it has now confirmed when the Ektra is going to be available for purchase.

At first glance, you might think that this smartphone has been designed by taking inspiration from the Kodak Ektra camera that was released back in 1941, and you wouldn’t really be wrong.

The specs aren’t really anything to write home about. Kodak Ektra features a 5 inch Full HD display, it’s powered by a Helio X20 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage as well as a 3,000mAh battery.

The Ektra has a 21 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 lens and Optical Image Stabilization. The camera touts Phase Detection Autofocus and 4K recording. There’s also a 13 megapixel front camera.

Kodak is going to first start selling the Ektra in Germany before making it available for purchase in other countries across the globe. The price in Europe has been set at €499 which is about $530.

It’s unclear right now how long it would take for the Ektra to make its way to the United States.
