Hydrogen One: RED Camera Smartphone Will Feature 'Holographic Display'

He also writes that "our display is technology you haven't seen before". As per Red's post, additional modules won't be available immediately after the smartphone launches. Although the display is also an aspect which looks likely to be worth paying attention to, as this is a smartphone that seems not only ready for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), but also mixed reality (MR), 3D, and even holographic content as well. The RED Hydrogen is a holographic media device that fits in your pocket.

RED has not revealed a huge amount of core specifications for the Hydrogen One, other than it is an Android smartphone with a 5.7inch display and features a microSD slot and USC Type-C connectivity and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

RED founder Jim Jannard mentioned, "There is no good way to describe it until you see it. It is not lenticular, which is an inferior tech in every way" he further asserted. "Lenticular display dramatically lowers resolution, can not be turned off for standard 2D content, only works in one direction (usually landscape), has color crosstalk... to name just a few issues". The company says it will also convert stereo sound into "multi-dimensional audio" in order to - and this is a direct quote - "assault your senses". In addition, the Red smartphone support a unique H3O algorithm for audio enhancements to carry surround like sound on a two-channel output. "The ideal match for holographic H4V or just listening to your favourite tunes", read company's blog post.

Amazingly, with so few details confirmed, the company is taking pre-orders for Hydrogen ahead of shipping in early 2018. We do know the Essential Phone has missed its self-imposed 30-day deadline. This is similar to what the Moto Z devices from Motorola do.

The phone is also modular too, with RED promising Hydrogen will be compatible with its camera products and an "ever-expanding modular component system". Currently, this batch of RED Hydrogen One phones will ship in Q1 of 2018, but RED does have a history of delays so don't expect it to be ideal. The plus point here lies in the fact that the phone will work with Red's cameras like Scarlet, EPIC, and Weapon. You'll notice that there are no hard specs for the device, things like chipset, storage, RAM and so on haven't been announced.
