Kodak unveiled its Ektra smartphone late last year. The smartphone is aimed towards those who take mobile photography seriously. The company released it in some markets across Europe back in December and it has now confirmed when the handset is going to be released in the United States. The company had previously said that it would be released in the country by April this year.

Kodak wasn’t able to stick to the April release timeframe but those who have been looking forward to purchasing this device can now pick one up from Kodak.

There’s great news for potential customers. Kodak had initially said that the handset would cost $549 but it’s actually selling it now on its own website for $399.

The Kodak Ektra smartphone features a 21 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual flash. It supports Optical Image Stabilization and Phase Detection Auto Focus. It has a 13 megapixel front camera with f/2.2 aperture and Phase Detection Auto Focus as well.

Other than that, it’s a mid-range affair with a Helio X20 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a 5 inch Full HD display. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, has a 3,000mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port.

It’s available in black and is only compatible with GSM networks so Sprint and Verizon customers won’t be able to use it on their networks.
