Remember that $1,200 smartphone – Hydrogen One – that high-end professional camera maker Red announced last month? Well, some prototypes of the phone have now appeared in a video from popular tech YouTuber MKBHD.
The prototypes shown in the video are non-functional, but should give you a pretty good idea about how the device actually looks. The majority of the video focuses on a “fit and finish” model that’s without any internal components, but gives a crystal clear look at the design.
As some of you might already know, one of the main features of the Hydrogen One is its holographic display – the device incorporates a technology that seamlessly switches between traditional 2D content, holographic multi-view content, 3D content and interactive games.
That holographic display is the second prototype, but it was not shown off in the video (it was blurred for some reason, but MKBHD says he was quite impressed with what he saw). And finally, a Hydrogen mod (a camera module) attached to the phone is the third prototype that the video shows off towards the end.
Here’s the complete video:
To be precise, the device starts at $1,195 (that’s for the Aluminum variant), with the Titanium model costing a whopping $1,595. It’s expected to start shipping in Q1 2018.
