Leia's technology works using light field technology, which stacks LCDs with backlights pointing in different directions.

When RED Camera first announced its insane $1,200 Hydrogen smartphone with a "holographic display", a lot of folks wondered how that would actually work.

The world of smartphones keep taking its turns, with new technology incorporated in the handsets every time.

Leia is a spin off from Hewlett Packard, who developed a lightfield technology for mobile devices. In practice, when you rotate a display, objects like buildings would appear to project from the screen, as shown in the video below. RED Digital Cinema is the company which is now trying its luck and coming up with its innovative Hydrogen One smartphone. The company commercializes the LCD-based mobile screens those are capable of synthesizing lightfield holographic content while retaining the usual functionality of the display.

RED has formed a "strategic partnership" with Leia and made an unnamed investment in the company, and Jannard will join its board of directors. RED hasn't showed the tech to many folks yet, but MKBHD's Marcus Brownlee did see it, and said he was "pretty impressed", adding that it wasn't ideal because of issues like light bleeding and stuttering for 4D gaming. Now, RED seems have chose to give some clarity regarding the same.

If you were wondering how a pretty young smartphone company could develop such a technology, then you are actually right.

Whether this technology will be accepted by the consumers or will remain to be a gimmick, it is definitely one of the most exciting developments in the smartphone industry over the years. The device is also modular, allowing users to add components to shoot higher quality videos and images.

RED has announced that its holographic display comes from a partnership with Leia Inc, which is named after Princess Leia from the Star Wars films. "The Hydrogen program will feature stunning holographic content and 3D sound for movie viewing, interactive gaming, social messaging and mixed reality", according to RED's statement today, but it's not clear where any of that is going to come from. We'll see how its holographic vision shakes out when the phone launches in the first half of 2018, which might represent a delay from RED's previous language of "early 2018".
