RED’s Camera centric smartphone, the Hydrogen One is coming to AT&T and Verizon sometime this summer. There’s no word about the official release date or its price, yet.
The Hydrogen One was available fore pre order for $1200 last July and was recently delayed until this August. Jim Jannard, the founder, explained that carrier certification was the reason behind the delay. With the Hydrogen One getting support on two of the largest carriers in America, it seems that Jannard is delivering on that promise.
RED claims that the Hydrogen One will stand out from other premium smartphones with its 5.7-inch “holographic display”, which will use RED’s new 4-View video format to display a 3D effect without the need for glasses. Although without seeing it in person, it’s hard to gauge how groundbreaking the display really is.
RED is also touting an expandable pin system on the back of the Hydrogen One that will allow for customers to expand their devices with additional hardware modules — similar to the Essential Phone or the Moto Mod ecosystem.
