CES 2017 - Kodak's Ektra smartphone gets priced

Cameras on smartphones have always been/and will be an Achilles heel as they lack the ability to capture "light" of much larger sensors , but this hasn't stopped them almost destroying the compact cameras and reducing the slr/mirrorless market to only the serious buyers . Kodak - a company which relied mostly on the sale of its compact camera market was one of the worst hit as people no longer take photos to the pharmacy or download them via the camera  and share them to "Myspace"(whats that you may ask) .In an attempt to "join the trend" ,Kodak too has joined the smartphone market with its new Ektra smartphone - a flagship spec handset with a one of a kind 21MP sensor with PDAF - phase detection autofocus . The specs are listed below , the handset announced a few months back is now said to cost $549 unlocked in the U.S or GBP 449 .
