The RED Hydrogen One is the high-end camera company's first attempt at a smartphone. A spec-rich infographic of the phone has leaked, indicating the majority of its ports and components. However, the release date is not among these details.

RED, a super-high-end camera maker, has been reported as releasing its first smartphone, the Hydrogen One, for quite some time now. It appears to have been designed with modularity in mind, with POGO pins on the rear panel for various attachments. It may also have its own range of lenses to enhance its stereo rear cameras, which are already capable of 4K recording, albeit with a 12.3 megapixel sensor. 

These details are all now available in a newly-leaked infographic, detailing many of the Hydrogen One'specs. It will come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and also have a dual SIM/SD card slot. The Hydrogen One will also have a 5.7-inch 2560X1440, LCD display with H4V for 'holographic' functions. It also has a headphone jack in its upper frame, which also features a unique, grip-promoting 'knurled' appearance.

Many of these details were already known, however. Interestingly, the infographic also points out a Kevlar- and aluminium-reinforced chassis. This chimes with earlier reports that the phone was supposed to come in a titanium backing, but that its manufacture had fallen through.

The infographic also appears to play down the Hydrogen One's processor. Other rumors suggest that it will be a Snapdragon 835 at best. Considering that we also know that the phone is in fact in a sort of beta-testing stage, the eventual release date of the Hydrogen One may render its internals all but obsolete by the time it actually comes out. On the other hand, RED has made it clear that the device is not about that at all.
