Kodak's new Ektra smartphone is made specifically for photographers, based on the brand's Ektra camera from 1941. Manufactured by the UK-based Bullitt Group, the phone has a vintage aesthetic, packing a camera with a 21-megapixel sensor behind an f/2.0 aperture. The  front shooter, meanwhile, has a 13-megapixel sensor with Phase Detection AF, behind an f/2.2 aperture. There's a large 5-inch HD touchscreen, equipped with a DSLR-style dial for manual settings. Features include Scene Modes, a Smart Mode for auto settings, a Super 8 app that recreates Super 8 film stock, 4K video and more. The Kodak Ektra launches in the UK in December for £449, followed by a wider release throughout Europe. No word on a potential U.S. release.
