RED's Hydrogen One phone with holographic display arriving at US carriers this summer
RED announced its technological wonder, the Hydrogen One smartphone back in July, and promised to bring it to market at some point this year. Today, the company confirmed its innovative device has received the support of US carriers and will most likely start shipping this summer.

However, those who placed pre-orders for the unlocked version will be getting their Hydrogen One units much earlier, RED confirmed. In case you've never heard of Hydrogen One, here is a short recap of what it can do.

First off, Hydrogen One is a modular smartphone based on a pogo pin system. It comes with a so-called “holographic display,” which when set in 4V mode dims a bit and pops up a “better than 3D” image that never needs special glasses. Obviously, you can use the phone's 5.7-inch display, which features 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution, in 2D mode as well.


RED also confirmed the smartphone will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a massive 4,500 mAh battery. The Hydrogen One will include a headphone jack, USB Type-C, and a dual SIM slot, which can be used for two phone number or one SIM and one microSD card.

Finally, users will be able to shoot 3D to 4V on the smartphone on both sides, so an extra module won't be needed to change between the two modes. In case you're wondering what's the resolution in 4V, here is a short explanation:


If you plan on buying RED's Hydrogen One smartphone, you should know the cheapest version (aluminum) costs $1,200, while the most expensive (titanium) is available for $1,600. We're waiting for US carriers to announce their own offerings on the smartphone in the coming months.
