The first holographic smartphone is getting delayed

According to the latest reports, the most eagerly awaited Google (GOOGL) Android offering of the year, the Red Hydrogen One, will not be hitting the shelves until early November. The smartphone, which is supposed to be the world’s first holographic phone, is apparently getting delayed due to a manufacturing tweak that required the Federal Communications Commission’s approval.

The model is now set to hit the shelves of carriers AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) on November 2.

Beta testers, however, will get their hands on a limited number of developer’s prerelease model of Red Hydrogen One, called Houdini, from August 31 through September 11 this year. Also, those who preordered the smartphone will get it delivered by October 9.

Film camera brand Red came out with the holographic phone with 4-View technology, which is not available on any other phones right now. For the time being, the company will ship the aluminum models only in black and gray, while the titanium-model could reach the market by next year. The phone will cost you $1,295.

The Hydrogen One comes with 5.7-inch display with QHD resolution, 2D, 3D, 4-View holographic mode and Qualcomm’s (QCOM) Snapdragon 835 chip (similar to Samsung Galaxy S8 and Google Pixel 2).

Apart from that, it will feature USB Type-C connectivity, 4,500 mAh battery as well as the dual rear-view camera.

Apple (AAPL) already holds a holographic screens patent and will be keenly watching the performance of Hydrogen One. The iPhone maker will likely use this as a prototype and will work on any negative aspects that might crop out of this model.

This year, Apple is set to launch three new iPhone models – an update to the iPhone X, a plus-size variant, and a low-tag LCD model. The updates to iPhone X and a 6.5-inch variant, dubbed iPhone X Plus, are expected to have OLED screens, while the third device will probably come with 6.1-inch LCD display.
