SD card is needed also a good display.
Huge battery is also good but as long as you have a power efficient proccessor you are good to go.
Kiyasuriin, 23 Jan 2018You're 800$ away. it's 1200$ phone. not 2000$
No, they're right. The phone will be avaible in two materials:
Titan and Aluminium, for 2000 OR 1200 Dollars.

Jack = overrated gimmick. Sd card = overrated gimmick. 120hz and higher than 1080p screen = overrated gimmick. Less than 4000mah battery = underrated need.
It should be excellent but for what purpose a camera phone needs a headphone jack?
Thats obsollete and thing of past not future.
Razer is a gaming phone and also dont have any jack.
I'm excited to see if it will be this camera or the l16. If ever I would consider buying red, it would only be for the camera. But, let's see what it will give us.
Mike, 23 Jan 2018So this will be a classic DoA (dead on arrival): outdated chipset with premium price.it was made with 835 back then. and unlike PCs. you can't hotswap chipsets to the latest. and besides. if you want your own rig. build it.
(my Kiya-touch T1 is a perfect example for that. I love my DIY PDA!
Mike, 23 Jan 2018So this will be a classic DoA (dead on arrival): outdated chipset with premium price.The buyers of this phone will not care about the chipset
It's not aimed at sheer performance but rather for it's camera and maybe even 3D
835 is still perfectly usable, heck, Even my 4 year old LG G2 with snapdragon 800 runs very well with lineage Os (7.1.2)
Just because a newer model is released doesn't make the previous generation obsolete
Just Like cars. Do you think there's a big difference between a 2017 Camry and a 2018 model?
Only slight changes or even no change in performance
Akorn Farmer, 23 Jan 2018Don't worry. The Snapdragon 855 (next of SD845) will be available shortly. SD855 will be relea... moreI assure you that no phone in 2018 will use the 855 processor because mostly it'll be unveiled in Q4 '18 and no manufacturer releases a phone with the latest chip set at the end of the year
MrElectrifyer, 23 Jan 2018SD835 in 2018? For a $1200 phone? Better be a replacement for them RED cameras...Don't worry. The Snapdragon 855 (next of SD845) will be available shortly. SD855 will be released 2nd half this year, manufactured in 7 nm process by TSMC. Many flagship phones that come out at second half of this year, like Samsung Galaxy Note 9, will use the SD855, not SD845, which is manufactured in old 10 nm process. So the SD835 AP of the RED phone will be *TWO* generations behind other flagship phones as soon as it hits market later this year.
MrElectrifyer, 23 Jan 2018SD835 in 2018? For a $1200 phone? Better be a replacement for them RED cameras...Its called arrogance. The public wont fall for this "3D" phone.Btw I love the promo shots where they make it seem like its a hologram phone;)
this summer people will have moved on.
Fake 3D akin to the 3D phones of old. 8 years ago it failed and it will fail again. ITS THE SAME AS THE OLD 3D PHONES PEOPLE! Instead just buy a HTC Evo 3D off ebay
So this will be a classic DoA (dead on arrival): outdated chipset with premium price.
SD835 in 2018? For a $1200 phone? Better be a replacement for them RED cameras...
There's not really that big of difference between the 835 and the 845, the average user want know the difference.
Heavy enough to be used in melee combat.
If the camera is something special, I will pay for it.
The 835... no worries. That's plenty fast.
Smaller companies can't jump on new CPUs as fast. They have to set a hardware platform and stick with it.
Asphalt-nation, 23 Jan 2018So the CPU will be largely obsolete when the phone will came out Who will pay nearly 2000$... moreWith this, you don't care for the SoC. You just want the screen and the camera
