RED Hydrogen 3

Professional camera company RED made waves last month when it announced plans to launch its first smartphone, the Hydrogen One.

The company hasn’t divulged many details about the device in the time since, but has hyped up some of the phone’s higher-level features: a “modular” accessory system that will support higher-quality camera tools and a “holographic” display that’s said to be capable of presenting images with a 3D-like effect without the need for specialized glasses.

All of that comes in a phone whose pre-orders start at $1,195.

Up to now, RED has only released one obscured teaser image of the device. But the company recently gave popular YouTube tech reviewer Marques Brownlee — also known as “MKBHD” — a non-functional prototype of what it says the Hydrogen One will ultimately look like.

Here’s a closer look:

This is the RED Hydrogen One. Right away you can see that its design is much busier than most other smartphones: The back has a mix of metal and Kevlar, with a big dual-lens camera, four screws in the corners, a big ruby-like logo, and those modular accessory pins at the bottom.

RED says the base version of the Hydrogen One will use aluminum, while a pricier model will be comprised of titanium.

The sides of the phone, meanwhile, are grooved to fit individual fingers. On one side, there’s a power button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner along with a dedicated button for video recording.

On the other, there are separated volume buttons.
