The Red Hydrogen One’s release has been delayed again.
A lot of hype is going around the Red Hydrogen One smartphone. This is not the first delay, unfortunately. August is the next deadline However, according to Jannard, there are a few good reasons.
Red Hydrogen One – better camera
The first reason is that they are trying to organize a simultaneous carrier launch, but it seems that is proving to be rather tricky.
However, Red has decided to include 4-View (4v) video capture, as a native Hydrogen One feature.
“Now, with a lot of hardware and software work (which created a good portion of the delay)… you shoot 4V real-time on the phone both sides,” wrote Jannard. “You monitor your cameras in 4V. You can Face Chat in 4V realtime. You can post 4V immediately.”
Hydrogen One will launch with a 5.7-inch QHD screen that can display 2D and 4V…basically a hologram that pops out of the display – without any special glasses.
When the device does launch, and if it works as it should, it will be something really special. However, Jannard said…
When we launch… the product won’t be complete. There will be more firmware/software updates than any other phone ever made.
