And Red aren't exactly a start-up, they've been going a while now producing some pretty serious cameras, designing their own sensors, and pretty awesome ones at that, and designing their own ASICS, hell they could have designed their own SoC, but probably thought a SD835x would be sufficient for the basic 'phone
Modularity is at the heart of the whole Red ethos, check them out, so modularity in a "Phone" is second nature to them. The real computing grunt (Needed for producing the .r3d files) will come from the bits you add on.
Myself, I can't wait.
Fulljack, 23 Jan 2018They already lose interest on your grammarWell surely it would be "lost" interest
You said they already lose interest in another posters grammar, But if they already have withdrawn interest it would be lost and not lose ?
Edupz, 23 Jan 2018You are joking right? How come SD Card is a gimmick? For a camera phone, that's a 100% needed ... moreI'm using my phone as camera. Got 128gb internal storage, 110gb for usage. No sd card support and don't need it. I do backups one or twice a month. So I think you aren't using the phone as camera, but to download a lot of crap on it.
CptPower, 23 Jan 2018What jack have with eco system?
Nothing. For better waterproofig a jack is obsolete.
Also f... moreNo ecosystem? Oh, because you don't have to pay for bluetooth headphones. And no, omitting the jack wouldn't get you more battery or more space. Mainstream phones aren't even thin enough to have good reason to exclude it anyway.
One last point, there are IP67/68 phones with headphone jacks.
Fulljack, 23 Jan 2018They already lose interest on your grammarEnglish is not my native language. Sorry for making a mistake. Please point it out.
PS i speak 3 other languages besides my native one. How many can you?
I agree that this phone focus on camera but to use SD835 is not very good. Also, while modular phones sound fantastic, reality is that not that many modules are being developed. Ear-phone jack is a must for audiophiles. Razer phone is a joke. Just because it is a company that makes gaming peripherals does not mean that their phone is a real gaming phone. Just look at the failure gaming laptop and countless useless gaming keyboards they produced. This phone is my opinion is just like iPhone. Selling more of brand and less of function.
Of course, I could be wrong since the phone is not released yet.
The price is too got damn high. But it is nice to see a startup not take the approach that they can't drop the headphone jack.
NoWay, 23 Jan 2018LOL.....sighif it gives a decent hologram screen. im going to ger 1. atleast its something different
Zenodroid, 23 Jan 2018It is because they see what the noobs are whining about. Jack = overrated gimmick. Sd card = o... moreYou forgot to mention also: screen - gimmick, audio - gimmick, touch screen - gimmick, etc.
In conclusion: phone itself is a gimmick, overrated. Nobody needs a phone.
You need to correct your article.
The chipset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835x processor. The 'x' suggests a custom version of the 835.
CptPower, 23 Jan 2018It should be excellent but for what purpose a camera phone needs a headphone jack? Thats obso... moreBecause wireless audio isn't as good as wired one, and type-c headphones aren't that much on the market. The future you wish for isn't ready yet, troll. You can go home
Alien , 23 Jan 2018By the time it will be out, people will loose interest..They already lose interest on your grammar
hey few months ago when preorders started they said is coming January 2018 and now its almost end of the month they say summer.....maybe...
Vegetaholic, 23 Jan 2018Sound like another Esential phone. Somehow I have a feeling it will sell half of what Esential... moreMybe the first prototype of this phone will fail in some aspects but the next version will be billions times betetr.
Same like razer phone over nextbit robin and razer 2 over razer 1.
Or apple X2 over Apple X which is burden to most who bought it.
Edupz, 23 Jan 2018Good job falling into the trap being locked into the ecosystem.What jack have with eco system?
Nothing. For better waterproofig a jack is obsolete.
Also for other more features like bigger battery and more space for other things.
Sound like another Esential phone. Somehow I have a feeling it will sell half of what Esential did, insane price, some scratchy holographic screen???? No one ever heard about it, to good to be true
The people buying this are serious cinema pros. A lot don't give two hoots for the 'phone itself but for the ability to monitor and control their cine gear. for them, $1600 is chicken feed, when Red cameras can go for upward of $30k, a lot have placed multiple orders for just that reason
Me, I'm not a cine pro but I've pre-ordered an Aluminium version for its go-anywhere better-than-smartphone video abilities, plus I may just stump up for the cinema quality camera module when it comes out.
Before jumping to conclusions I suggest checking out the source.
