This upcoming Android handset has a faux leather design with a retro touch and uses a MediaTek Helio X20 processor. Focused on features for fans of mobile photography, it is expected to go on sale for around $550 USD.

When it comes to mobile phones, Kodak did not manage to become a big name yet, but they are still trying. Their upcoming handset, dubbed Ektra, will target mobile photography fans, also offering an original design that uses faux leather. This 5-inch handset might not be unique, but it has a few attributes that could help it earn at least a few fans.

Kodak Ektra has a full HD display and uses a MediaTek processor, namely the Helio X20. It also features 3 GB of memory, 32 GB of internal storage, as well as a microSD slot. The cameras are both above average, with 13 MP on the front and 21 MP on the back. The main camera supports 4K video and HDR, as well as optical stabilization. Kodak's custom image app offers manual and bokeh photo modes, next to various settings and presets.

This handset is scheduled to launch in December when the UK will get it unlocked for a price around $550 USD (£450 GBP).

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.
