Building re:Charged.
Important thing to note here: this is not a Kodak phone. Kodak, the brand is dead, and now it's a shell company that licenses out its brand to other random companies. It's not what you thin.

@ow I think you mean Kodak, the company that made film and cameras, is dead. The brand is the only thing that's left.

I didn't expect to see Kodak launch a smartphone but it looks like they're simplly licensing the brand, according to @ingridlunden.

Would love to test this! The camera-related specs are pretty good, but I wonder how much does it cost? *21MP main camera with Kodak non-reflective lens coating. Aperture f2.0. *Optical Image Stabilization and Auto Focus. *13MP front-facing camera. *Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) & HDR Imaging. *4K Video Capture.

@alexabian It's the IMX 230 Exmor sensor, this is used in numerous middle-class phones like the Honor 7. The only impressive part is an added OIS, everything else is just an impostor as it definitely does not come with superior cam abilities as the looks may suggest. It's also full plastic.

@alexabian I was pretty enticed by it, too. Too bad, the innards are less impressive as the looks. It still is a very neat looking device.
