High-end camera maker RED announced last year that it’s going to enter the smartphone market as well. The RED Hydrogen One is going to be a $1,200 smartphone that features a new “holographic display,” according to the company. Given that RED is a camera company, one can also expect it to push the envelope in the camera department as well. While RED has now revealed that it has made further improvements to the upcoming device, it has also revealed that the release of the Hydrogen One has been delayed.

The RED Hydrogen One release was initially expected to take place in the first quarter of this year but that’s not going to happen. The company says that it needs more time to put the final touches on the handset before it can be released to the public.

It’s taking the extra time to improve the device so the handset may now ship with a rear camera module that’s capable of recording 3D video. It will also feature dual cameras on the front and back now. This will enable the handset to capture 4-View video in real-time.

RED now says that the Hydrogen One will be ready for release by August this year and that it’s going to be launching the smartphone with multiple carriers in the United States.
