Red has been teasing its Hydrogen One smartphone from the past year, and it is surely not going to be ‘just another’ smartphone. Red, a company well-known for its beasty cameras, is launching the smartphone this year and today, we have got details of a few specifications and the shipping date of the phone from the Red user forum. If you don’t know, the Red Hydrogen One is already available for pre-order from the official website for $1,195 and $1,595 for the aluminum and titanium variants respectively. Well, there is surely no need to surprise seeing this price tag as we know that the price of company’s video cameras can go up to $80,000!
Jim Jannard, the founder of Red Digital Cinema, posted his experience with the smartphone and also revealed few of the specifications of it. So, the specifications of the Red Hydrogen One include a 5.7-inch display that has a 256x1440p resolution in the 2D mode which is the normal display mode for any phone. But, the Hydrogen One’s display also has a ‘holographic’ mode, i.e., the 4V mode in which the display dims and results in an image that is ‘better than 3D’ and can be viewed without the need of glasses. Jannah says about the display –
You just have to see it. So far, everyone that has seen it gasps, swears or just grins. I wish we had recorded all the reactions. Priceless.
Similar to the Moto Z phones, the Red Hydrogen One is coming with a modular approach, and the phone has pogo pins on the back where different modules can be attached. Other specifications include the Snapdragon 835 processor, a 4,500mAh battery, 3.5mm headphone jack and expandable storage.
The phone is going to be slightly thicker and heavier than the normal smartphone with this screen size. Users will be able to shoot 3D or 4V content with this device but how this is going to happen is not yet revealed by the company. We can assume that a modular camera will be attached to achieve this.
Lastly, talking about the shipping dates, here is what Jannard said –
Carrier support for Hydrogen is unprecedented… we just can’t tell you yet. Safe to say it is as good as it gets. This is great news for many obvious reasons, but it is bad news for the time that it takes for each carrier to certify the Hydrogen before it can launch. We have no control over that process and are at the mercy of the carriers when they can get through that process. This means “official” ship date for carrier phones is going to likely be sometime in the summer. “Unlocked” Pre-orders will however ship before that.
So, are you excited to see another unique smartphone after the Razor phone? Do let us know via the comments section.
