Being extremely hyped, the Red Hydrogen One will be one of the most interesting pieces of technology. This phone, running on Android OS, is coming out during summer, and while not having the best specifications overall, the Hydrogen One is special in that it has a hologram-like display by projecting 3D images on its screen. Additionally, people will not need to use any special glasses or other objects to view the screen in 3D. While the 3D display may not seem too practical, it can be useful in some circumstances. For example, video chat between two people who have the phone will allow people to see each other in 3D, adding depth. Additionally, games on this device will allow users to be more immersed. If the user chooses, you can also switch to view everything on the screen at 2D. In addition to the display being innovative, the audio converts stereo sound into multi-dimensional sound. The phone will be sold by AT&T and Verizon and will cost $1195 for the aluminum model and $1595 for the titanium model.
Just recently, Red allowed some people to come to their studio to test out the phone. Many reporters and journalists who visited have said that the phone was very impressive and cool. Unfortunately, those who visited were not allowed to take a picture of the front of the phone because the holographic view would not show very well in 2D images. However, many have noted that the phone itself is quite big and heavy. This is in part due to the fact that this is a modular phone, meaning that users will easily be able to add components to the phone in the future, such as components to shoot motion pictures at higher quality. Because of the heavy price tag, this phone will be more targeted towards content creators who want enhanced videos and 3D video files, rather than the everyday user. It will be very interesting to see how well this phone does when it is released, and we will see if it truly does add another ‘perspective’ to the smartphone industry.
