Remember the Hydrogen One smartphone that RED announced last year? If you are still not aware of the announcement then to recap, RED, a company behind high-end cinematography and photography sensors and accessories announced that it is planning to enter the smartphone market. RED is known for its sensors which are modular in nature so that users can add different types of accessories to make sure that the camera can do exactly what they need. The company teased that it will enter the smartphone market with its first smartphone, the RED Hydrogen One.
The company even started taking pre-orders for the smartphone even before it was made. Its been almost a year and RED is not sure about the launch date of the Hydrogen One. But, according to the latest report by PhoneScoop, it is likely that we are near the launch date of the device. We are certain about this information because Hydrogen One visited FCC for certification. FCC certification is a necessary step for all electronic makers to ensure that they can sell their devices in the United States.

According to the report, Hydrogen One will come with 4,510mAh battery, dual-SIM slot, support for all LTE bands in the United States, and the holographic screen that the company initially teased at the announcement and at the preview event earlier this year. A report by The Verge also pointed out that RED founder Jim Jannard revealed a week back that there may be some additional delays to the final launch date because of a “pushed back” certification.
This comes weeks after the device was allegedly spotted on Geekbench. According to the listing, the device comes with a model number RED H1A1000 while running on Android 8.1 Oreo. It sports 6GB RAM along with MSM8998 chipset, which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
