Kodak Announces New Smartphone designed for Photography

Eastman Kodak Company announced its new Kodak Ektra smartphone Thursday. The phone is

designed “for those with a passion for photography, from enthusiasts to experts,” according to a news release sent out Thursday. The name of the smartphone is a nod to the original Kodak Ektra Camera, launched in 1941.
