Red Hydrogen One with holographic display

  • The Red Hydrogen One has appeared on Google’s Android Enterprise page.
  • Google’s page reveals that the phone will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
  • The phone also has Android 8.1 and an NFC chip, according to the listing.


The Red Hydrogen One will be shipped out to pre-order customers next week, but we still don’t know much about the new smartphone. Fortunately, Google’s Android Enterprise page has yielded a few more key details.

The updated Google page, spotted by Android Headlines and seen below, reveals that the Hydrogen One will offer 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This puts the phone in high-end territory, although the older chipset means it won’t be as powerful on paper as other 2018 flagships.

Android Enterprise

Red’s phone also supports NFC and Android 8.1, according to Google’s page. It’s a little disappointing to see Android 8.1 when Android Pie has been available since August, but I imagine that switching to Pie would’ve put more pressure on release timelines.

What else to know about the phone?

This latest leak certainly helps us fill out the Red Hydrogen One specs sheet. Other confirmed details include a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4,500mAh battery, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a headphone jack.

The phone’s big selling point, however, is the 5.7-inch 2,560 x 1,440 display. Those figures don’t sound unique at all, but it’s supposed to be a holographic (4V) screen. People who’ve previously gone eyes-on with the screen have said  it’s more like 3D technology than a hologram physically popping out from the phone.

In addition to the October 9 shipment date for pre-order customers, the Hydrogen One is scheduled to launch via AT&T, Verizon, and Mexico’s Telcel on November 2. Unfortunately, the titanium model has experienced more delays due to production woes, but Red is offering a free aluminum model to customers who pre-ordered the titanium variant.
