While we previously reported that RED’s upcoming holographic display smartphone would be delayed until August of this year, American carrier Verizon has made it known that they will carry the Hydrogen One – the world’s first holographic smartphone.
RED has already opened the pre-orders for the said smartphone since July last year with a premium price of $1200, the camera-maker has yet to fulfill the orders and is asking for an extension among its pre-order customers, to be able to refine features and fix things, with RED’s CEO saying that “they also don’t know whatsoever they’re doing.”
The phone features a 5.7-inch holographic display paired with 4-View technology, which RED touts that this is how 3D should be viewed — without glasses. It also features robust and modular body, just like its array of professional cinema cameras.
Adding to that, RED is also launching the Hydrogen Network, which is an exclusive network of channels with 4-View content.
Pricing & Availability
While the exact price are yet to be announced, based on our previous report and announcement from RED, the smartphone would be available in August of this year, with prices predicted from $1200 up to $1500 depending on the configuration.
