Looks like the Verizon-bound RED Hydrogen One will have some bloatware
As has already been confirmed, the Hydrogen One will ship with a traditional 16:9 display up front along with some rather big stereo speakers and a dual-camera setup up front. Similarly, the rear is home to a second dual-camera setup which is expected to produce some pretty impressive photos considering this is RED’s area of expertise. Elsewhere on the back, the smartphone includes a special pin connector on the rear that will allow owners to connect mods to the device.
Taking a look at the software side of things, while the RED device in question doesn’t sport any exterior Verizon branding, a Verizon folder of apps can be seen on the home screen. This, while not completely clear, appears to include the My Verizon, Verizon Mobile Access Management, and the Verizon Cloud apps. Aside from this, no other pre-installed apps are visible on the home screen but it’s worth noting that they could still be present.
In regards to what can be expected internally from the RED Hydrogen one, the smartphone will, unfortunately, be powered by the aging Snapdragon 835 – Qualcomm has since released the Snapdragon 845 and will announce the 855 in December. This processor will be coupled with 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. Also, it looks set to ship with the now-outdated Android 8.1 Oreo straight out of the box. Completing the package will be a hefty 4,510mAh battery.
