RED’s Hydrogen undertaking is no more.
Originator Jim Jannard said so on the organization’s discussion (by means of The Verge), saying he’ll be “closing down the HYDROGEN venture, finishing a vocation that has included Oakley, RED Digital Cinema and HYDROGEN.”
He likewise reported his retirement because of “a couple of medical problems.”
Jannard said that the Hydrogen One telephone — the main cell phone the organization has propelled — will “keep on being upheld later on.”
The move isn’t especially astonishing because of the amazingly poor surveys Hydrogen One has gotten, and the organization’s own affirmation in July that completing the telephone’s component and fixing its issues was “incomprehensible,” purportedly because of terrible showing of RED’s assembling accomplice in China.
In those days, Jannard guaranteed a subsequent telephone, Hydrogen Two, which was to be manufactured “for all intents and purposes without any preparation,” yet it shows up those plans were dropped.

On paper, Hydrogen One was an energizing gadget, with a 3D “holographic presentation” and an amazing camera. In all actuality, the screen wasn’t excellent, the interface was obsolete, 3D substance was missing and the telephone was inadequately worked just as cumbersome contrasted with present day Android telephones.
