RED Announces $1200 Holographic Display Smartphone

RED announces new $1195 Android phone with 5.7-inch

The company introduced its first smartphone product called the Hydrogen One which comes with a holographic display.

What RED was more than willing to talk about, though, at least in part, was the phone's "holographic display".

RED is now taking preorders for Hydrogen One, which will be available with an aluminum body for $1,195.

China Warns India on Doklam Area Issue
The border between Sikkim and Tibet has been delineated based on the 1890 convention between China and Britain. Bhutan, the third country involved in the dispute is also talking to China to end the impasse.

An Android device, the phone's highlight feature is its 5.7-inch "holographic display" that is able to deliver on 2D, 3D and stereo 3D content through regular viewing as well as virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality platforms. It sounds like Red has not secured a reliable display manufacturer or is producing screens in-house.

RED, announced this news through a press release and has said that it will ship the smartphone early in 2018. Movies, documentaries, games, shopping and other apps all found with one click.

Much like several recent flagship phones, the Red Hydrogen One will also come equipped with a USB-C port, but interestingly also has a microSD card should you need more storage. They say good things in life don't last forever, but we wish RED would keep the current pricing for as long as it keeps manufacturing the holographic phone. "Lenticular display dramatically lowers resolution, can not be turned off for standard 2D content, only works in one direction (usually landscape), has color crosstalk... to name just a few issues".

Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger Engaged
Hee hee: Soon after People claimed the two were engaged , Meredith took to Instagram to make a joke about it. We hope Patton's eight-year-old daughter, Alice Rigney , is just as excited as the couple.

RED also claims that the phone will also use an algorithm to convert stereo sound into "multi-dimensional audio" to add to the immersive experience. The ideal match for holographic H4V or just listening to your favorite tunes. This is also definitely for camera pros. "The difference this makes would be enough to justify the entire system", reads the Hydrogen One fact sheet.

According to internet speculation, the device will support a glasses-free 3D display, similar to the one seen in Nintendo's 3DS handheld console. There is also ambiguity about what kind of selfie camera the phone has or even if it has a selfie camera. The company says that this feature is compatible with its Scarlet, EPIC and Weapon cameras. You do see a slight camera hump on the back, but no information as to what sort of specs it has, which is highly unusual.

The device runs Android.
