RED, is a brand known for its high-end camera. The company is now venturing into the smartphone market. There has been a lot of mystery regarding the Red Hydrogen One phone but now there are bits of news that are giving a concrete shape to the phone. Some of the specs of the phone are that it will have 5.7-inch screen with a pixel resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. It also runs Android, there’s a dual-sensor camera on the front and the back, and it’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 (yes, the flagship chip for 2017), as well as a 4,500mAh battery. It’s built for immersion, as the Hydrogen One’s display is aimed at delivering a 3D experience without the need for 3D glasses; and the phone can process audio to be much more spatial.
What is so slick about the RED Hydrogen One?
The phone is thick and heavy with textured grooves on the side making it easier to hold. The phone has a large camera module and grey-and-red color scheme, which makes it different from every other specimen on the market. The highlight of the phone is the nanotechnology between the LCD and the back-light to create a 3-dimensional (3D) effect. However, the catch is that the content has to be supported by the display-which is sort of holographic-to work well with audience expectation. To overcome this barrier, RED is launching a content platform witch downloadable material. The company has the tech to convert 2D content to 3D content. If the content is not 3D then the screen can be used to view normal 2D material.
The audio bit of the phone aims to get close to reality as possible with headphones on. There is a lot of 3D audio processing which enables spatial sound. This has been executed before in Dolby Atmos-supported devices.
But all of this remains to see when the device hits the main market.
