Pioneer of video camera world, Red Studios Hollywood is all set to launch its first smartphone Red Hydrogen One, with 4-view screen technology. Initially announced in 2017, Hydrogen One is first of its kind holographic smartphone, that will allow users to see Red holographic 4-view content(H4V), without the use of any glasses.
Backed by Verizon and AT&T, Hydrogen One sports a 5.7” inch, 2,560 x 1,44 display, built-in with nanotechnology, that seamlessly transition between any 2d, 3d and holographic multi-view content in both landscape and portrait mode. With the size bigger than iPhone X, and 2 ounces heftier than any other 5.7” inch phone, it has a full metal body, with the power button on the right, fingerprint sensor beside it, and scalloped edges on the sides, for better grip. Red has made sure to keep its industrial look on it, and is evident on the design, with 2 metal variety, titanium, and aluminum for the phone. It runs on Android OS, with an outdated Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835X processor, a big 4500 mAH battery, and a dual hybrid SIM slot, with microSD card support. It has a headphone jack, stereo speakers and charges over USB-C, and supports all LTE bands. It has front and back dual stereo cameras for 4V video recording.
Red Hydrogen One is a multi-dimensional modular phone, with one module already designed: an 8K, 3D camera attachment developed with camera company Lucid. This will allow the user to attach any camera lens with the phone, for quality pictures and videos, whether be it Canon, Nikon, or Leica. It is built with a high-speed data bus to comprehend its ever-expanding modular system. The phone is built to join the ecosystem of Red camera setup, working with systems like Scarlet or Weapon as a user interface and monitor. Hydrogen One incorporates its proprietary H3O algorithm to convert stereo sound into multi-dimensional audio, much like Dolby 5.1 in headphones.
The most unique feature of the phone is the Holochat, which allows real-time holographic video chat. It uses two front-facing cameras to create a 3d projection of the user, which can be displayed to the caller, using Hydrogen One. Suffice to say, it’s one of its kind.
Red Hydrogen One is priced at $1,195 for the Aluminium model and $1,595 for Titanium model. Although the pre-order was long closed, due to certification issue from FCC (Federal Communications Commission), it has been delayed till August, and might still take more time, before it can be released. According to the RED’s founder, Jim Jannard on August 2, Hydrogen One finally passed through FCC, and the carriers are allocating a new release date, which is yet not known.
