red hy­dro­gen one

T3 - - Game Changer -

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.
