Known for their high quality cinema cameras, Red released their debut smartphone, the Hydrogen One.
Red’s smartphone will be available for around £1,000 and will start shipping November this year.
The outter body is crafted from a scalloped aluminum frame and Kevlar panels, making the Hydrogen One look like a tank.
What’s interesting about this smartphone is that it features a 4View display, which nobody knows what it exactly is, but the company claims to be the “world’s first holographic screen”. After checking a bunch of the Red’s smartphone reviews, there’s alot of complains about this new holographic display, most people saying it’s blurry and bad.
Apart from the weird screen, the phone features mainly 2017 specs at least in terms of CPU, as it still boasts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. The storage can be expanded thanks to the MicroSD card slot. It also features a pretty huge 4,500mAh battery.
The rear cameras are 12-megapixels each, while the front ones are 8-megapixels each. Both allow you to snap holographic photos and record holographic vdeos straight from the phone.
Definitely this phone isn’t comparable to iPhones, Galaxys or Pixels, and I think it was meant for RED fans and 3D enthusiasts who were waiting for Hydrogen One’s features for a long time.
