The world’s first ‘holographic smartphone’ is coming to AT&T, Verizon

The much awaited — and profoundly mysterious — Google (GOOGL) Android offering of the year, the Red Hydrogen One, is on its way to the market. The upcoming smartphone is supposed to be the world’s first holographic phone that offers 3D-like experiences without glasses. So will Apple Inc. (AAPL), which already holds a detailing holographic screens patent, follow the steps of Red and come out with a holographic phone?

Cinema camera brand Red came out with the holographic phone with 4-View technology, which is not available on any other phones right now. The company has never built a phone before, and at launch, the product will have more firmware/software updates than other phones.

The Hydrogen One will come with 5.7-inch display with QHD resolution, 2D, 3D, 4-View holographic mode, Qualcomm’s (QCOM) Snapdragon 835 chip (similar to Samsung Galaxy S8 and Google Pixel 2), USB Type-C connectivity, 4,500 mAh battery, latest Android OS, dual rear-view camera, and will come in two models — Aluminum and Titanium.

The smartphone is coming to Verizon Wireless (VZ) and AT&T (T) later this year. Neither carrier has stated what the phone would cost, but the market is expecting the smartphone to cost anywhere between $1,200 and $1,600.

The company, whose cinematic equipment is used in the Hollywood, is scheduled to conduct a private media sneak peek of the Hydrogen One at Red Studios in Los Angeles on May 19. However, on June 2 and 3, AT&T is inviting public and conducting its own demo of the phone at AT&T Shape, Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles.

Red Hydrogen One is coming to Verizon Wireless (VZ) and AT&T (T) later this year, with an expected price range of $1,200 to $1,600.

In the midst of these, Apple is expected to launch three all-new iPhone X models with three different sizes. The phones are touted to be a lot less expensive, and Apple will include a USB-C to Lightning cable and a fast-charging brick in the box. Apple is preparing for a clash that could probably target Samsung Note 9 or future Galaxy S series.

So will Red Hydrogen One too stand in the way of Apple? This will be known only after both the smartphones are launched and how their performance play hindrances to the rival phones. We’ll just wait for the time being.
