A 5G Use case! RED Smartphone with LEIA Holographic Display Tech

Posted · Add Comment

So my quick take on the RED Hydrogen phone is… Firstly, as a phone, I don’t expect it to be a market success as the price pressure on devices just via competition has pressed down our perception of value.  For example, just considering frameless metal, large HD glass phones to chose from, we would all run out and buy a $400 phone if it were built with $1000 components yet we would not be nearly as interested in a $399 phone if it were built with $300 of components and a $1000 phone with $1000 components is only interesting to the 1% So regarding the last sentiment, both Apple iPhone8 and RED Hydrogen are reportedly in the $1000 range.

The RED Hydrogen is your basic 5.7″ Android phone and to make it more compelling, they partnered with LEIA to add a 2D and 3D Holographic screen. Using polarization, diffraction with controlled backlighting, images can appear to be in 3D right off the display- just add HD 3D content. Below is a video from the company that makes the display technology, LEIA.
