This smartphone/digital camera hybrid was supposed to arrive in the US last month but did not make it back then. For $399 USD, this stylish handset comes with RAW support, 4K video support, as well as software solutions for quick editing of videos and images.

Kodak Ektra has been around for quite a long time without coming to the US, but now the wait is over. This handset has a few premium design touches, targeting mobile photography fans who want more than just a phone able to come up with good pictures.

This handset is powered by a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor, next to 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, as well as microSD support up to 256 GB. The main camera has a 21 MP sensor, while the selfie shooter can provide 13 MP selfies. The Extra runs Android Marshmallow and comes with Super 8 Video Recorder and Snapseed for editing videos and images directly on the phone. This hybrid comes with advanced manual mode settings and can record 4K videos.

Currently priced at $399 USD, Kodak Ektra is an interesting choice for mobile photography fans who are looking for a retro design. It is also worth mentioning that this hybrid is also much cheaper than the new DxOMark leader, HTC's U11.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
