RED will release a smartphone with 3D-holography in 2018
Technologies of virtual and augmented reality can soon blend, giving rise to a new kind of visual content. Which will be perceived by a person without special glasses or special sets, and just like that, when you look at the screen. The description is very blurry, but in RED they promise to show know-how in action as early as next year.
Reputation of the company RED does not give reason to suspect her of cheap PR. From the text of the announcement it follows that the new smartphone model will receive an advanced display with nanotechnology, which will allow the finger to switch between 2D-picture, 3D-content, interactive games and multi-level holography. All this will be realized in the screen itself – the user will not be forced to buy additional accessories.
It sounds as if all these Google’s Tango , Microsoft’s HoloLens, Magic Leap and ARKit for iOS are becoming obsolete at once, and the existing technologies of both virtual and augmented realities will merge into a new conglomerate. The border between the digital world, the drawn and the surrounding reality will be erased, and to access the new wonderful world you will only need one smartphone. The price ranges from $ 1195 to $ 1495, as follows from the pre-order conditions.
As Tekkult found out, among other novelty options are 5.1 surround sound, Android OS, support for third-party camera modules for high-quality shooting, USB-C port and memory card slot. The date of appearance of the new smartphone from RED is vague, it’s just 2018th, but this year is already announced in absentia as the beginning of a full-fledged arrival to pocket gadgets of virtual and augmented reality. It is known that Google and Apple are actively working in this direction, but RED has a chance to make a giant leap forward.
