While saying a phone can produce holograms might sound like something straight out of Star Wars, some early reviewers seem to be pretty impressed with the RED Hydrogen One’s 5.7″ display. According to RED, the phone uses a 4-view video format that allows the device to project a 3D image without the need for special glasses. Obviously, there’s much more going on in the background than just a new video format. But RED has been pretty keen on keeping the details behind the display a secret.

The one thing we do know about this mysterious display, is that RED had help developing it. Leia Inc. (another Star Wars reference) partnered with RED to bring the phone’s hologram technology to life. According to the company’s website, Leia Inc. is focused on bringing light-field display technology to mobile devices. Check out the video below for a preview of what to expect when the RED Hydrogen One releases this summer.
