6/1/18 – The Next Big Thing: The Hydrogen One with Holographic Display
People have been waiting for holographic technology since Douglas Quaid first got his ass to Mars. A fleeting 28 years later, and we’ve finally gotten our wish. The revolutionary smartphone Hydrogen One by Red features a 4-View holographic display that will soon debut and will be sold by Verizon and AT&T for their 4G cellular networks in late summer, 2018.
The Hydrogen One’s 5.7 inch display will ostensibly allow 3D visuals without the use of formerly requisite 3D glasses and will pair this burgeoning technology with multidimensional surround sound audio and expansion capability allowing users to swap modules with optional handset features. The holographic effect can’t really be described but only experienced, according to vice president of device and consumer product marketing for Verizon, Brian Higgins. “You have to hold it in your hands and experience it yourself to understand why this is such a mobile game changer.” This bleeding edge “4-View” display purports to allow viewers to “look around, below, and into your screen’s image,” said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president of device and network services marketing for AT&T.
The holographic capability of the Hydrogen One will be supplemented by the launch of what Red calls the Hydrogen Network. The Hydrogen Network will make use of the holographic tech by allowing 4-View video content channels that offer films, music and games created specifically for this new display. With a sleek, industrial design that’s available in two price ranges, pre-orders for the $1,295 aluminum model or the $1,595 platinum metal version have already been maxed out without any additional information regarding other specifications having been divulged. The endless possibilities of this technology are expected to appeal to a broad range of consumers, from video content creators and product marketers, to social media marketers and news media producers.
