red hydrogen one
About a year ago, the LG G5 arrived with its snap-on enhancement modules. Shortly after, Motorola brought its Moto Mods to market (check out our pocket guide this issue), and though it might turn out to be a bit of a fad, the upgradeable handset trend is certainly catching on. The RED Hydrogen One is the latest in this line.
Only, unlike LG or Motorola, RE D doesn’t specialise in phones at all; its strengths lie in cinematography, with its RE D cameras to thank for the picture behind a sizeable chunk of movies ( Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, for example). Its new phone, though not a looker, has some unique entertainment-focused features that seem to tally with its movie-shooting skills. Its handset will come with a holographic 5.7-inch display, capable of viewing its content to make the most of the 4D display, as well as 3D movies, and VR games. And there won’t be any glasses needed, either. Then there are the modules, which you snap onto the phone. At present, RE D has shown off a bigger lens attachment, for shooting higher-quality movies and photos, and hinted at a module that will be able to capture holographic images. Phones are increasingly becoming a one-stop-shop device, and the Hydrogen One could take this jack-of-all-trades capability to the next level. Price From $1195 (about £930) Available 2017 URL red.com
