RED to build a phone with holographic display and a price tag of $1200
Mr. Phone is a place where you can find the specs to any phone in the world, but today even we are a bit helpless. RED(Yes the camera manufacturers) has announced a phone which you can preorder today at $1200 for the lower end version. The device won't ship to you until Q1 2018, however, the most exciting part is that none of its specs have been released yet. How's that for a surprise?
The Hydrogen One, as it's being called, will have two versions one with an Aluminum body and one with a Titanium chasse. The legendary camera company expects you to pay $1200 for pre-ordering a phone you know zilch about. Now, for the few things we could guess from the posted image, the device seems to have a unique industrial design with straight sharp cuts. It even has Torx screws at each corner which looks really cool and goes with the entire theme of the device. The one very interesting feature, also mentioned in the official release document, is modularity and with the Moto Z like pins at the bottom, we are happy to see RED bringing the experience from their cameras to the smartphone industry
also talks of a 5.7" holographic display on the Hydrogen One which will enable you to consume 2D, 3D, AR, and VR content on your smartphone. Well, we have a long time for more rumors and leaks to come in and I think only a selected enthusiast crowd will be willing to spend this amount of money. Now, for the ones who do belong to this tiny group, here's a little tip for you straight from the horse's mouth:
