Red had announced the Hydrogen One, its first smartphone with a ‘Holographic Display.’ So far the company has not given any detailed looks at the phone, and the device is available for pre-order starting at $1,195 plus.
The company hasn’t divulged many details about the device in the time since, but has hyped up some of the phone’s higher-level features: a “modular” accessory system that will support higher-quality camera tools and a “holographic” display that’s said to be capable of presenting images with a 3D-like effect without the need for specialized glasses.
The phone also has a dedicated button to record video, grips on the side, a Type-C USB port to charge, headphone jack, speakers on the top and a super high resolution display. While all of this sounds regular, it also has pins at the back where these modular attachments can be added. Now Motorola with its Moto Z and Moto Mods has already explored the concept, but the way Red is doing it will take it to another level. At least that’s the impression the company gave to Brownlee. This certainly is not a smartphone that everyone will be able to afford or perhaps even appreciate.
Up to now, RED has only released one obscured teaser image of the device.
