Hydrogen One Is Camera Maker Red's First Smartphone
The Red Hydrogen Onesmartphone features a "retina-riveting" display, which supposedly springs between "3D" and 2D modes depending on the content.
RED, a maker of digital cameras for cinema, is making a new smartphone that will feature a holographic display. It is expected to have a retina-display screen that can switch from 2D content to "holographic multi-view content, 3D content, and interactive games". The company says that it's built an H3O algorithm into the phone's OS to convert stereo sound into multi-dimensional audio.
RED will offer two versions of the Hydrogen One - one in aluminum that starts at $1,195 and an even pricier titanium version that costs $1,595.
The company's founder, Jim Jinnard, assures that one has to see it believe it.
While we can applaud RED for seemingly attempting something innovative with its foray into the smartphone arena, we are not sure that there are many people who would shell out a large sum of money for a holographic display equipped Android phone. According to Red, these are special prices, available for a limited time only.
Test data blamed for wild swings in Nasdaq-listed stocks
Tracking share prices in real time is usually done via platforms like Bloomberg's , while others rely on Google and Yahoo Finance. Erroneous prices showed up on the websites that included CNNMoney, Bloomberg and Google Finance in after-hours trading.
Red Hydrogen One uses a USB Type-C charging port, and supports expandable storage via a microSD card.
"Lenticular display dramatically lowers resolution, can not be turned off for standard 2D content, only works in one direction (usually landscape), has color crosstalk... to name just a few issues". RED says that the design of this handset may change before the actual release and that it cannot guarantee these prices at the time of release however. Despite this statement, RED is taking pre-orders for the Hydrogen One, which is set to reach the public by early 2018.
RED is now taking preorders for Hydrogen One, which will be available with an aluminum body for $1,195. The new RED camera smartphone is called the "Hydrogen One".
The Hydrogen One will also become the foundation of a future multi-media system, the company says, and future modular components will include attachments for shooting higher quality photographs and movie footage, as well as "Hydrogen format holographic images". "We just added holography and stereo 3D for good measure". However, no modules will be available at launch.
