RED is Prepping a $1200 Smartphone with "Holographic Display"

The RED Digital Cinema Camera Company has announced HYDROGEN, a new smartphone with a "holographic display". According to RED the USP of the Hydrogen One is its Holographic Display. Further, the handset will also support modular attachment which will also be shipped with the Hydrogen One itself.

The RED Hydrogen One is a modular device, too, offering a high-speed data bus that'll let you attach modular components. It starts at $1,195 for the aluminium model, or you can get a titanium one for $1,595. The display is not a lenticular-like existing display technology on smartphones.

Quiz: What do you know about Android? That Hydrogen 4-View content that RED mentions includes movies, games, and other things that will, presumably, be available by the time Hydrogen One hits store shelves.

The Hydrogen One will come with a USB Type-C, 3.5MM audio jack and expandable storage. The phone's pricing is sure to turn some folks off, but people that buy RED's regular cameras that can cost tens of thousands of dollars, the Hydrogen One's price might not be such a big deal.

Jim Jannard founder of RED said in a post "there is no good way to describe it until you see it".

He also explained why RED had chosen to enter the competitive smartphone market at this point in time. 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".

The RED Hydrogen One is a phone that, if the quality of their cameras and the price of the pre-orders is anything to go by, should be quite the premium device.

The company also said that the phone will ship in early 2018, and it's now available for preorder on RED's website. However, now it seems as if another company just may take the next leap in smartphone evolution by producing the world's first glasses-free holographic phone. Now, the company is looking to launch its first smartphone which is expected to "shatter the mold of conventional thinking".

It sounds a bit pompous, but given RED's expert reputation we it comes to cameras, we can't wait to see what the Hydrogen One has to offer.
