Kodak presented their new smartphone at CES 2015, the IM5. They are certainly put their world-renowned name to work, by printing the brand right across the back of the phone.
The IM5 will be equipped with an octacore MediaTek SoC and will be carrying 1GB of RAM storage. The phone storage is sized at 8GB with the option of expanding it with a 32GB microSD card. The screen is sized at 5.0 inches with a 720p resolution display laid beneath.
The $248 smartphone will be powered by a 2150mAH battery, which should be sufficient for the display specs.
The primary camera has a 13MP sensor without much more detail to it. Certain hands-on reviews from the CES event claim that there is nothing spectacular about the primary camera performance. This may come as a disappointment, as many would expect that a camera company would produce a phone with an excellent one.
However, Kodak has clarified that the IM5 is not meant to be a high-end feature-heavy phone, but rather one that is meant for the baby boomer generation.
The OS will be Android 4.4.2 with a UI that features large icons for easy viewing — something that the older folks would definitely appreciate.
