Premium camera maker RED has been working on its first smartphone called the Hydrogen One for many months now. The company hasn’t revealed much about the device except that it’s going to have a 3D holographic display which will be capable of producing the 3D effect without requiring the user to wear glasses. The accessories that most companies make for their devices include cases and battery packs, RED is actually developing an 8K 3D camera for the Hydrogen One.
RED has teamed up with a company called Lucid to create an 8K 3D camera that’s going to work with the company’s Hydrogen One handset. The camera was displayed during RED’s Hydrogen One party. It touts two synced 4K cameras that can capture and convert video and pictures to 8K 4V.
The content can then be displayed on the smartphone’s 3D display. Lucid’s real-time 3D Fusion tech will be present on this camera which will be based on RED’s hardware and design expertise. It will also look like RED’s other cameras.
Users will even be able to drop their smartphone into the new camera so that it doubles as a display for it. This will let them view the content immediately in 3D/4V without requiring headsets.
Prices for the handset will start at $1,195 and it will be sold on Verizon and AT&T. No word on how much this camera will cost. RED is yet to confirm a release date for the Hydrogen One.
