Kodak teasing a new smartphone

The new handset is expected to launch in two weeks, but there is no information on the specs of this successor to the mid-range IM5 smartphone.

Kodak is a name that was great once, but now is nothing more but a shadow of its former self. They tried their chances in the smartphone market already, but their latest handset, dubbed IM5, failed to live up to the expectations. Now, it looks like they are ready to launch a new smartphone.

A recent teaser image shows what appears to be a Kodak-branded shutter or a power button. Unfortunately, the only bit of information revealed is the date of October 20th. By the looks of the shutter/button, the handset will probably be a premium mid-ranger that focuses on features for mobile photography fans.

The new handset will come after the IM5 that was announced in January at CES and made its debut for around $310 USD in Netherlands. Its specs were nothing special - a MediaTek MT6592 SoC and a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, but the company who build it was Bullitt Mobile - the same one behind the rugged CAT handsets.

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.
