RED Unveils a $1200 Phone That's a 'Holographic Media Machine'

RED Unveils a $1200 Phone That's a 'Holographic Media Machine'”

RED new smartphone certainly looks like a insane piece of mobile tech, and while we don't really know much about its hardware features, the holographic screen is intriguing and RED's history with cameras means that the Hydrogen One could have some solid camera performance. Yes, the Red Hydrogen is a smartphone with a holographic display.

RED described the device, called the Hydrogen One, as "a standalone, full-featured, unlocked multi-band smartphone operating on the Android OS that just happens to add a few additional features that shatter the mold of conventional thinking". We're not expecting an Apple-level success here, but the RED pedigree gives us hope that the Hydrogen One could be more than just a render and a laundry list of buzzwords.

RED is obviously best known as a camera company, so it's little surprise that the phone can also be used to create those 4-view.h4v files and share them with others who have the right hardware.

RED is apparently keen to ensure that users can create and consume holographic content as they wish as well.

High-quality audio is another feature to drool over, with a special algorithm that can reportedly convert stereo sound into 5.1 surround sound. The ideal match for holographic H4V or just listening to your favorite tunes. Download or stream to view. There are two versions, the Titanium, priced at $1,595, and the Aluminum, priced at $1,195. The only other things we really know about the phone is that it has a USB-C port, takes microSD cards and has a headphone jack.

Red sees this as an opportunity to jump on the slowly-but-surely-growing AR and VR trend by promising that its phone display will support interactive media - like videos and games - in both landscape and portrait modes. RED has revealed precious few details about the device, and acknowledged that the "design shown may change". And the phone will work (somehow) with RED's extensive lineup of digital cinema cameras.

The Hydrogen One is expected to ship Q1 2018.

The Hydrogen One is now available to pre-order with prices starting at $1,195. RED says that these prices may not last, but I'm sorry if folks are hesitant after we've seen the likes of Comet and Saygus.
