Back in 2017, RED announced the Hydrogen One smartphone with a holographic display. It even started accepting the pre-orders without showcasing the device. The company was able to ship the device after several delays, but only the Aluminum version. It also missed out several features which they promised initially. Now, the company is also shipping the Titanium version of the RED Hydrogen One. Last year, the company shipped the Aluminum version to those who specifically ordered more premium Titanium version.
As promised earlier, RED is also shipping the Titanium Hydrogen One device to those pre-ordered it. While the Aluminum Hydrogen One with 128GB of internal storage is priced USD 1,295 (approx 90,000), the Titanium version with 256GB of internal storage costs USD 1,595 (approx INR 1.11,000). Apart from the use of Titanium material, the device looks the same as the Aluminum version and also packs the same specifications. Since the device was first announced in 2017, the Hydrogen One still packs the two-year-old hardware.
While the Aluminum version is also available through carrier partners, the Titanium version is only available on the company’s website. It comes with a 5.7-inch 4-View Lightfield Display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. The device is said to be capable of showing a holographic view. According to the company, the front and rear cameras are capable of recording Holographic 4-View (H4V) in real time. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform coupled with Kryo 280 CPU and Adreno 540 GPU.
The device comes with 6GB of RAM and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Compared to the Aluminum version, the Titanium version weighs 29 grams more. It comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The Hydrogen One also sports front-firing stereo speakers with Spatial Surround Sound support. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, 3,5mm audio jack and USB Type-C port. The device is backed by a 4,500mAh battery and supports QuickCharge 3.0 fast charging technology. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
