Here we have our first hands-on look at the upcoming RED Hydrogen smartphone they are preparing to release. As many of you know, RED is known for making high-end cinema cameras, but now they have launched themselves into the deep end of the smartphone world market.
The idea for RED is to create the world's most high-end smartphone with the option to modify and select what features you get. In the image below you can see the back along with the idea of a cinema-style lens attachment directly on the phone. These phones will be priced at $1,195 for the aluminum version and $1,595 if you wanted it in titanium. For a photographer and art director that takes quite a few photos and videos, I can easily see myself checking this thing out.
What do you think of the idea that high-end camera companies are starting to make smartphones? Would you buy a phone from Canon or Nikon, for example? I'd love the idea of modular phones explored more as it could be interesting to purchase a solid camera add-on to any iPhone. Would you buy this RED Hydrogen phone?
