    By Clove , February 11, 2015 - Leave a comment

    Kodak IM5The well-known manufacturer, Kodak, has announced their entry into the Smartphone market with the IM5. The device comes loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat upgradeable to 5.0 Lollipop, a 1.7 GHz octa (8) core processor, 5 inch IPS LCD Screen, and naturally for Kodak, a decent 13 megapixel main camera plus a very respectable 5MP front facing camera.

    There is a simplified UI with quick access to the main apps, Kodak image post-processing and printer integration.

    Kodak, a name synonymous with cameras, are keen to establish themselves in this market, owing mostly to the massive move many of us have made to using the cameras on board our phones, for both general photographs and selfies.

    The IM5 is listed at a very competitive £189.98 (£158.32 excluding VAT) considering the expected specification.

    We look forward to a respected brand making a presence in the smartphone arena.

  • 1GB ram places this firmly into the lower end of the market. The camera will have to be quite good to get people to buy this over the Motorola G.

    • Yes, it’s a shame Kodak (or rather the manufacturer licensing the brand) haven’t decided to put 2GB in there. They’ve made the decision for an octa-core processor so to skimp on RAM seems a touch short-sighted. Maybe the spec will bump up before release.
      Camera wise I reckon it’s all going to be about the software. One assumes the camera module itself will be a pretty standard component, probably the same as we see on any number of Samsung phones, so the app / processing will likely have to be the differentiator. It won’t be too hard to beat the G, as much as the Moto is an excellent phone for the price, in my opinion the stock Google Camera app is pretty poor at best.
      The simplified interface might draw in a different crowd too, I’ll get an image of it added to the post
