Hydrogen One will pack in a 5.7-inch specially crafted holographic display which is capable of showing normal 2D media with the 3D optimisation.

But if you just want to buy the phone as a curiosity to display holograms, it will come preloaded with the Red Channel interface, a selection of holographic content that includes movies and games in the.h4v file format.

While most specifications are still a bit of a mystery, we're told the Hydrogen One will be a modular product in the vein of the Moto Z lineup, which means it will support add-ons for shooting high-quality video and images.

If the price tag doesn't scare you away, the Hydrogen One sounds like an impressive smartphone for photography and cinema fanatics. It comes in a low-tier version, priced at $1,195, and a higher-end one at $1,595. In its press release announcing Hydrogen One, the company says that "It is no longer necessary to carry (or charge) another device to enjoy multi-dimensional content. Experience "look around depth" in the palm of your hand".

Quiz: What do you know about Android? All that is known as of now is the that the phone will have a USB-C port, headphone jack, and an expandable microSD card slot.

"Our display is technology you haven't seen before", RED founder and CEO Jim Jannard said.

High-end camera maker RED is getting into smartphone business. Further, it will run on Android OS that subsumes the Red's own H3O algorithm, which will convert regular stereo sound to multi-dimensional audio.

The company says the device will ship in Q1 of 2018. "In the blog, it said that "...after this initial release we will not be able to fill all orders on time due to display production limitations. The biggest shocker is that this phone whose specs are not clear, not many photos available is already under pre-order and many consumers are pre-ordering it already.

Last but not least, whether the smartphone is called Red Hydrogen One or Red Hydrogen, doesn't matter. Now, the company is looking to launch its first smartphone which is expected to "shatter the mold of conventional thinking".
