RED's Hydrogen One will be available at AT&T and Verizon this summer

RED Hydrogen One is coming to AT&T and Verizon 'later this summer'

Red Hydrogen One, the oft-delayed smartphone from the famed camera maker, is finally coming out, and in the U.S. it will be coming to Verizon and AT&T.

AT&T doesn't give a release date for the phone but it says that it will give consumers a demo of the Hydrogen One at AT&T SHAPE at Warner Bros.

Both Verizon and AT&T mention in blog posts that the Hydrogen One will go on sale in stores starting later this summer, which lines up with the August launch we've been hearing about for the past few months. They will be previewing the phone to the public showing games, movies, and other content that will be available on it.

Verizon has also announced plans to sell the RED Hydrogen One.

Verizon hasn't shared a release date or, more importantly, a price for the Red phone. The company also said that it will launch the smartphone with multiple carriers, and it looks like Verizon is the first one to confirm it will offer the Hydrogen One at some point this year.

Building off of the modular roots of the Moto Z, the Hydrogen One features a pogo pin system that will allow for add-ons that enhance the functionality of the phone over time. 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.

When it was announced in 2017 two prices were listed on the pre-order website.

YouTube personality Marques Brownlee saw a prototype of the phone previous year and was impressed by the holographic screen despite some rough edges that Red will presumably smooth over before the phone launches. One person made a video about the phone, showing off that it is real but that person didn't show off its screen capabilities.

The Hydrogen One was previously delayed because it was waiting for carrier certification which it just received.
