AT&T announces it'll carry the RED Hydrogen One

RED claims Hydrogen One is designed for "doers, makers and content creators". Neither carrier listed a specific launch date, with AT&T saying only that the phone would be available "later this summer".

RED founder Jim Jannard has hyped up the device by stating that the 5.7-inch Hydrogen One phone displays "better than a 3D image" without glasses. A full spec sheet hasn't been shared, but we expect to see more details soon.

We still don't know exactly when RED Hydrogen One pre-orders will start being fulfilled, let alone when sales are supposed to begin for new buyers, but both Verizon and AT&T are throwing their weight behind the mobile "4-View holographic" project. Also, we'll most likely learn more about the phone's price closer to launch, though RED is selling, or rather sold, the unlocked models for $1,295 (aluminum) and $1,595 (titanium), respectively. In theory, that means you will be able to look around, below, and even into the screen's image. Given that the phone is launching on both a CDMA and GSM carrier bodes well for its compatibility overseas, but it's hard to say if Red will retain the ability to sell the phone unlocked through its own channels. It wasn't just a concept but it's a real phone whose prototype was shown off in a video.

The phone was originally slated to ship during the first three months of 2018, so it is already late to market.

Red also says that the Hydrogen One will be a modular phone, capable of adding on accessories - most of which sound like they'll be geared toward adding to the camera's capabilities.

Recently, Red stated that the phone was delayed and now coming in August. Indeed, the company blames some of its delays on carrier certification.
