A well-known insider dubbed Digital Chat Station revealed that Realme has teamed up with a veteran camera maker to create this smartphone. Another informant added that this is Kodak.
The well-known company filed for bankruptcy in 2012 and sold a package of patents that made Kodak a unique player in the imaging market. Its patents were purchased by Apple, Google, Facebook, Samsung, RIM, Adobe, HTC, Fujifilm, Huawei, Amazon, Shutterfly and Microsoft and others. In early 2013, the company sold the rights to manufacture Kodak cameras to the Californian company JK Imaging, in the same year the company exited bankruptcy proceedings, fully paying off its debts and completing the restructuring. In 2015, Kodak launched its first smartphone called the IM5, and a year later, the manufacturer introduced the Kodak Ektra phone.
Not so long ago it became known that in July Realme will release the Realme GT Master Edition smartphone, which was created by the famous Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Perhaps this particular smartphone was created with the participation of Kodak.
Vice President of Realme Xu Qi Chase posted a photo on his Weibo page that was taken on a new smartphone, but the name of the device is deliberately blurred.
