The RED Hydrogen Two is Coming
RED CEO Jim Jannard that the company is hard at work on a second version of the Red Hydrogen Phone, a smartphone many would consider to be the worst phone of the past 12 months. The phone touted a world-class camera experience via an add on module and a one-of-a-kind 3D experience on the screen, but the phone was plagued with bugs and issues and reviewers were not so kind. RED says the Hydrogen One’s issues were due to an unnamed Chinese supplier and that the successor to that phone is being built virtually from scratch. No word on pricing or availability, though RED says owners of the current phone will get preferential treatment when it comes to availability and pricing of the Hydrogen Two.
