Camera maker RED announced last year that it would enter the smartphone market. The RED Hydrogen One is their ticket in and it is going to be a $1,200 smartphone with a new “holographic display,” according to the company. Since RED is a camera company, we also expect it to excel in the camera department and this looks promising. Anyway, RED has now revealed that it has made more improvements to this device, and has also revealed that the release of the Hydrogen One has been delayed. So good news, bad news.
The RED Hydrogen One release was expected to take place in the first quarter of the year but that’s not anymore. going to happen. The company needs more time to put the final touches on the handset before it can be released.
It’s taking the extra time to improve the device so the handset may now ship with a rear camera module that can record 3D video. It will have dual cameras on the front and back too. The company says that this will allow the handset to capture 4-View video in real-time.
RED now states that the Hydrogen One will be ready for release by August of this year. We hope so.
