Designed for content creators, social media experts and enterprise marketing professionals, the Hydrogen One smartphone from Red offers new video capabilities.

Things have been rather hush-hush since then besides a vague preview and the announcement of a Leia partnership, but today things are once again picking up steam as the company has announced both AT&T and Verizon will carry the device later this summer. The 5.7-inch phone's major feature is a holographic display that can project 3D images. It has a 5.7-inch screen that's created to offer a 4-View (4V) "holographic mode" which displays a "better than 3D image" without glasses, according to Red founder Jim Jannard. RED announced early this month that it had to delay the Hydrogen One to August in order to improve the phone's camera.

"We have never built a phone". To go along with Hydrogen One, Verizon plans to launch a 4-view content network specifically for subscribers who buy the smartphone. And you won't need glasses or an augmented reality headset to view images popping out of the Hydrogen One's display, which also feature a more conventional 3D mode. "A phone like this deserves the best network in the country, which is why we can't wait to bring it to Verizon customers later this year".

A recent report from PC Mag described some specs of the Hydrogen One.

And while we don't know final pricing yet, we do know the phone won't come cheap. Neither carrier listed a specific launch date, with AT&T saying only that the phone would be available "later this summer".

We don't have an exact release date for the RED Hydrogen One, but Verizon says it will be available "later this year".
