Although there is no word about a release date or retail price, RED’s Hydrogen One phone will be coming to Verizon and AT&T this summer.
Preorders opened last July with an early $1,200 price tag, but the phone was delayed until August 2018. The delay was due to RED working out carrier certification, the company’s founder, Jim Jannard, had said.
While the delay is understandable as Hydrogen One is supported on two of America’s largest carriers, the excitement around the phone certainly hasn’t dwindled in that time. The Hydrogen One is expected to stand out from other smartphones by sporting a 5.7 “holographic display” which will use RED’s 4-view video format to display a 3D effect without the user needing 3D-glasses.
Certainly, the phone has promised a lot of exciting features ever since last year’s announcement, including availability in titanium and aluminum, support of modular attachments, and holographic multiview. However, we are all waiting to see if the Hydrogen One will deliver on its promises.
