RED has finally released its long in gestation Hydrogen One smartphone finished in titanium. As you might expect for a device made out of this more exotic material, and from a company not known for selling cheap products, it costs a bomb.

If you’ve been desperately waiting for camera maker RED to launch its Hydrogen One in titanium, you’re in luck. First announced in 2017, the more exotic variant of the Hydrogen One can be yours for the eye-watering price of US$1,600. From a system perspective, however, this device harks back to its 2017 conceptual origins shipping with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 paired with 6 GB of RAM.

Unfortunately, the news doesn’t really get better from there. Although renowned for its camera technology, the RED Hydrogen One totes far from the best camera on the market. It was supposed to be supplemented by expensive optical add-ons, but they seem to have permanently disappeared from the RED site. Its headline feature is a “4-View” display that is purported to deliver a glasses-free 3D effect; however, reviewers never really warmed to this feature either.

If there is any good news, it is actually for the customers who pre-ordered the titanium variant at launch. With no launch date in sight because of manufacturing difficulties, the company gave those customers the aluminum model for their money with the promise of later supplying them the titanium model when it shipped. Those customers get to score the titanium model at no extra cost.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
