Red is a high-end cinema camera maker which is used in some of Netflix blockbusters and movies like ‘Straight Outta Compton’. The company formerly scheduled the smartphone with 3D display to be released earlier this year. However, the smartphone wasn’t released due to some issues that needed to be perfected. Nonetheless, the smartphone is more likely to be released soon and it has some great features on board. This smartphone is not available as it does have an expensive price tag with a version even more expensive more than the iPhone XS Max.

Red Hydrogen One

Design and Display

The RED Hydrogen is unlike any other smartphone out there with its own unique look and that includes some unconventional additions. Being a premium smartphone itself, it doesn’t quite have the reduced bezel and glass build charade. Instead what you have is heavy bezels bearing sensors with ridged blunt serrated edges at the sides. At the side is the fingerprint scanner which is also the power button. The back has a patterned striated design and a circular camera module with a pin for the camera module and another at the bottom for additional modules.

One of the highlights of the smartphone is the 3D display, the first time you have that on a smartphone. The 4 view display as it is referred to by Red has the ability to show the 3D holographic images or videos. This means you can play HD 3D contents without the need for a VR headset. Also, it can be used as a monitor to view 3D contents being recorded by a Red camera. The 5.7-inch screen comes with a 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution and it helps bring the 3D display to life.

Battery and Camera

For a smartphone with a 10mm thickness and a weight of 263g on the normal model and 293g on the special Titanium variant, you would expect a big battery inside which it has. The smartphone sports a  4, 500mAh battery which is a quite generous deal with sufficient power for the day. You’ve got a USB Type-C at the bottom of the bunch and a likely fast charge feature.

Red is a big player in the camera scene which is why there is a lot of expectation about optic capability of the Red Hydrogen One. Frankly, the smartphone is poised to do very well in this area and is even likely to go to the top of the camera pyramid. There is a dual setup on both axis which includes a pair of 12.3MP rear cameras and a duo of 8.3MP cameras at the front. Both front and back camera can shoot in 4k resolution which is very impressive.

Hardware and Software

The smartphone has been in the works since the previous year which is why it has a predated chipset. Inside, you’ll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor handling things and an Adreno 540 GPU in for graphics. There is a spacious 128GB or 256GB storage space in the smartphone and a possible 512GB added expansion support. However, there is plentiful storage space available up to 6GB RAM on board for easy navigation between apps. On the operating system.side of things, you’re getting the Android 8.1 Oreo from the pack with a likely Pie update later on.
