RED’s upcoming ‘Hydrogen One’ smartphone is anticipated for release this summer with a holographic display like no other.
It has partnered with Lucid to install an 8K, 3D prosumer camera on the gadget, which houses two synced 4K cameras that snap and transform video, as well as images, to 8K 4V (.h4v) files.
These files can be subsequently screened in 3D using the smartphone’s display, and uploaded to social media sites such as YouTube and Facebook.
The ‘Hydrogen One’ holographic display is said to be “better than 3D” as it does not require any special glasses for viewing. The phone will come with a 5.7-inch QHD screen, Snapdragon 835 chip, 4,500 mAh battery, USB ‘Type-C’ port and headphone jack.
Its aluminum version would probably retail at US$1,195, while its titanium alternative could go for US$1,595. It’s anticipated to release this summer, purchasable directly from RED, as well as via AT&T and Verizon.
Few other details are known about the enigmatic smartphone. Apparently RED isn’t allowing any photos to be taken of the screen as yet, since regular images won’t do justice to the 3D effect.
