The first full holographic display smartphone is set to hit the market. According to mobile carriers AT&T and Verizon, RED is set to launch the Hydrogen One.

The company is known for its high-end digital cinema cameras and will be creating the first handset to offer a 4-View (4V) "holographic mode," according to Verizon.

The device will also support high-quality audio and a fancy camera that will be able to connect to the other cameras made by the company.

RED founder Jim Jannard has hyped up the device by stating that the 5.7-inch Hydrogen One phone displays "better than a 3D image" without glasses.

The carriers have not announced the final date of release but they have confirmed plans to carry it in the summer.

Along with this, AT&T and Verizon have revealed that the phone will launch alongside a hydrogen network - an exclusive network of channels with 4-View content, including movies, music and games.

The pricing is not final yet, but RED did take pre-orders earlier this year with two models priced at $1,295 and $1,595.
