If you’re not into high-end cameras, you may not know of RED, but it’s an established player in that particular market. The company has sent out a press release today confirming that it has a smartphone in the pipeline. The company says that its new premium smartphone called Hydrogen One is going to have a “holographic display.”
The company’s press release says that the Hydrogen One’s 5.7 inch display uses nanotechnology to switch between traditional 2D content, 3D content, holographic multi-vie content, and interactive games seamlessly. It doesn’t really explain what this nanotechnology is and how it works.
It’s going to have support for modular attachments as well, much like the Moto Z, and since RED is a high-end camera company most of the modular attachments for this handset will be related to photography. RED has also said that the handset will be compatible with its digital camera lineup but what exactly will it do for the cameras hasn’t been revealed.
No further information has been revealed at this point in time but it would certainly be nice if RED revealed more about the Hydrogen One. All it’s saying right now that customers can pre-order it starting today and that the device will ship early next year.
The aluminum version costs $1,195 while there’s a titanium version for $1,595. RED does caution that the design of this handset may change before the actual release and that it can not guarantee these prices at the time of release.
