RED, the company famous for its high-end professional-grade video cameras has been working on its first ever smartphone dubbed as RED Hydrogen One Phone. Back in July, the company promised to bring it to market at some point this year. Today, the company confirmed that the device has received the support of US carriers and it could start shipping this summer.
Talking about RED Hydrogen One Phone, it is a futuristic device with a new kind of 3D screen that can be seen in either landscape or portrait orientations. It comes with a so-called “holographic display,” It displays images in pixel layers rather than transposed images. It’s a whole new approach to 3D that doesn’t need any special glasses. It sports a 5.7” (2,560×1,440 pixels) display which supports both 3D and 2D mode as well.
“Our display is technology you haven’t seen before. It is not lenticular, which is inferior tech in every way, has been tried many times before and failed for good reason. (see Amazon 3D Fire, LG Optimus, etc). Lenticular display dramatically lowers resolution, cannot be turned off for standard 2D content, only works in one direction (usually landscape), has color crosstalk… to name just a few issues.
The RED Hydrogen One Phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a microSD card support with hybrid SIM tray. The smartphone is fueled by a 5400mAh battery, it includes a headphone jack, USB Type-C port.
In terms of photography and video shooting, users will be able to shoot 3D to 4V on both sides of the device.
“The 4V files match the pixel resolution of a traditional 2D file, which is great for downloading. The resolution perception is just different. The horizontal resolution of 2D is now split into depth layers. It gives a completely different feeling. All the pixels are there… but instead of “looking at” a pic, you are immersed in the image. It is quite spectacular. As a resolution guy, I absolutely prefer watching 4V over 2D.
Finally coming on pricing, the RED Hydrogen One smartphone comes with the price tag of $1,200 (Rs. 76500 approx) for aluminium version, while the expensive titanium version cost at $1,600 (Rs. 102000 approx).
