Red Hydrogen One is a Phone With a "Holographic" Display
Red — a company known for its high-end professional video cameras — today announced its entry into the phone space with the Hydrogen One, a high-end Android phone with a 5.7-inch "holographic" display that promises glasses-free 3D. While the display supports traditional stereo 3D, it also supports a new 3D-like "holographic" technology created by Red called Hydrogen 4-View (H4V). The phone body sports Red's distinctive industrial design and comes in either aluminum or titanium. The Hydrogen One will support snap-on modules for shooting both high-resolution video and H4V content. It will also integrate with other Red products, serving as a touchscreen controller and monitor for Red cameras. The phone also has USB-C and a microSD memory card slot. It will ship in early 2018 and can be pre-ordered now in a limted-time offer for $1,195, or $1,595 for the titanium version.
