Clearly, the market-leading telecommunications giants strongly believe in Hydrogen One's potential to "change the way you capture video and immerse yourself in mobile entertainment". Today, both AT&T and Verizon announced they will be carrying the RED Hydrogen One.

For those who are still considering getting their hands on the phone, the good news is that we might now have a timeframe to look forward to and it is this coming summer. "This means "official" ship date for carrier phones is going to likely be sometime in the summer". RED is a company known for their high-end camera equipment which is used by Hollywood studios to film their movies. 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.

AT&T said it will offer previews of the Hydrogen One handsets June 2 to June 3 at its AT&T Shape event in Los Angeles before the phones are released to the public.

We do know that it will be available on the Verizon Up rewards program, so every $300 spent on monthly bills can be turned into prizes - from VIP tickets to everyday rewards. Using what is being referred to as a "pogo pin system" you'll also be able to stack modules onto the device to add functionality, presumably along the lines of what Motorola does on its Moto Z smartphones with Moto Mods accessories.

Details of the Hydrogen One first surfaced last July. Neither outfit commented on pricing although as you may recall, Red offered the device via pre-order for a limited time starting at $1,295 for the aluminum version and $1,595 for a titanium-clad example. But at this pre-release stage, and not having seen the phone, you can color me a skeptic.
