Kodak set to launch photography-focused smartphones at CES 2015
Kodak set to launch photography-focused smartphones in 2015
Kodak has been busy making moves to rescue itself, with an action camera offering (the 360o HD capturing Pixpro SP360), and now a Kodak-branded smartphone, with bespoke image capture, management and sharing features to offer “a rich user experience”.
The smartphone will be built by mobile device manufacturer Bullitt Group (who also creates products for CAT, Ted Baker, and JCB), and will apparently not compromise on design and user experience. Other than photography features, the phones will focus on giving customers easy access to printing and sharing services will still offering the latest Android OS features, making it competitive with other high-end smartphones.
Not much else has been shared about the upcoming smartphone, though it could be similar to the concept “Instamatic 2014” Android device with 14-megapixel sensor Kodak unveiled in 2013.
The first handset will be launched at CES 2015 on the Kodak stand, and the company says there will be further announcements across the second half of 2015 including a 4G handset, a tablet and a connected camera.
