AT&T and Verizon Sign Up to Sell the RED Hydrogen One Phone

Called the Hydrogen One, the handset populated tons of media outlets' homepages (including ours).

RED's Hydrogen One is shaping up to be 2018's most unique smartphone, and when it launches, will be sold through two of the United States' biggest carriers - AT&T and Verizon.

When the Hydrogen One was announced, two models were unveiled: an aluminum version with a price tag set at $1,195, and a titanium variant with a price tag starting at $1,595. Neither carrier listed a specific launch date, with AT&T saying only that the phone would be available "later this summer". If the pre-order price is any indication, though, prepare for a sizable dent in your bank account. The website now lists $1,295 for the aluminum phone and $1,595 for the titanium version.

In May, however, it was reported the smartphone with a holographic display had been displayed as RED worked to include even more features. And you won't need glasses or an augmented reality headset to view images popping out of the Hydrogen One's display, which also feature a more conventional 3D mode. Besides the high-end specs inside, the Hydrogen One will be capable of capturing 4-View video that enables users to look around and behind objects that have shot with the camera.

Details of the Hydrogen One first surfaced last July.

It's highly unusual for the top two wireless service providers in the USA to carry the rookie smartphone effort of a company like RED, whose expertise lies elsewhere.
