RED releases Hydrogen 4-View

High tech smartphone

RED, which normally makes high-end $10,000+ cameras, is launching a $1,195 smartphone called the RED Hydrogen One.

Some of the features include a 5.7-inch "Hydrogen holographic display" capable of viewing holographic RED Hydrogen 4-View content, 3D content, and 2D/3D virtual-reality and augmented-reality content, a built-in H3O algorithm that can convert stereo sound into multi-dimensional audio, and support for modular components.

While RED is refusing to talk about the usual stuff we get in phone press releases, like the processor, camera resolution, RAM, or battery size it is talking a little about its sound and vision capabilities. The screen apparently features nanotechnology that seamlessly switches between traditional 2D content, holographic multi-view content, 3D content and interactive games.

You can view traditional 2D content normally at the full-screen resolution and holographic RED Hydrogen 4 View content (H4V). There is stereo 3D content

Embedded in the OS is a proprietary H30 algorithm that converts stereo sound to expansive multi-dimensional audio. It is apparently a bit like 5.1 on your headphones.

The RED Hydrogen One is a modular device, too, offering a high-speed data bus that’ll let you attach modular components. RED says that you’ll be able to use modules to do things like capture higher-quality motion but doesn’t offer many other details on the device’s modular capabilities.

It runs Android and it'll have a microSD slot a 3.5mm headphone jack and USB Type-C port.

The RED Hydrogen One will begin shipping in Q1 2018. An aluminium model for $1,195 and a titanium version of $1,595 are up for pre-order. RED does say that these prices will be available for a limited time only.
