AT&T and Verizon will carry the RED Hydrogen One

In addition to the new smartphone, the company behind the smartphone will launch the HYDROGEN network, an exclusive network of channels with 4-View content.

Verizon has just announced it will carry the RED Hydrogen One, world's first holographic smartphone.

In case you're unfamiliar, the RED Hydrogen One is an, ambitious, Android smartphone which was announced past year.

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. Given that the phone is launching on both a CDMA and GSM carrier bodes well for its compatibility overseas, but it's hard to say if Red will retain the ability to sell the phone unlocked through its own channels. The website now lists $1,295 for the aluminum phone and $1,595 for the titanium version. 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.

Red also says that the Hydrogen One will be a modular phone, capable of adding on accessories - most of which sound like they'll be geared toward adding to the camera's capabilities. At the time, Red was looking to launch the phone by early 2018.

It's highly unusual for the top two wireless service providers in the USA to carry the rookie smartphone effort of a company like RED, whose expertise lies elsewhere.
