Camera maker Red is making its foray into the smartphone space. On Wednesday, the company announced a phone called the Hydrogen One, which, the company claims, will be "the world’s first holographic media machine."
The Red Hydrogen One smartphone features a "retina-riveting" display, which supposedly springs between "3D" and 2D modes depending on the content. One would be able to enjoy such content with wearing glasses, the company claims. About that, Red has also announced a channel where it will offer "4-view holographic" content
The Red Hydrogen One will work with Red’s professional camera program (it's unclear if one would actually be able to plug their Red DSLR cameras), and offer familiar user interface and monitor. Much like several recent flagship phones, the Red Hydrogen One will also comes equipped with a USB-C port, but interestingly also has a microSD card should you need more storage. A 3.5mm headphone jack will also be present.
The Red Hydrogen runs Android with several proprietary features such as "H3O algorithm that converts stereo sound into multi-dimensional audio." We will have to wait to find out what exactly that means but the company says that the sound experience would be as good as plugging 5.1 audio out headphones.
The expected pricing: TITANIUM $1,595 and for the ALUMINUM $1,295
