Verizon says it will be available later this year, while AT&T says it expects them to be available later this summer.

Separately, Red announced that AT&T and Verizon will be the exclusive carriers of the Hydrogen One at launch in the United States, with Claro and Telcel carrying the phone in Latin America. "When the RED HYDROGEN ONE launches you'll be able to look around, below and into your screen's image with a 4-view holographic display, which is better still than 3D", reads the AT&T newsroom post.

We do know that it will be available on the Verizon Up rewards program, so every $300 spent on monthly bills can be turned into prizes - from VIP tickets to everyday rewards.

Gasoline inventories were down by 3.8 million barrels last week, after a total 2-million-barrel build in the prior 14 days. The two ministers, in a joint statement, blamed volatility in prices on global political tensions.

Prices and additional specifications have also not been announced, though the phones were available for preorder earlier from Red for $1,295 in aluminum or $1,595 in titanium, according to the company's website. And you won't need glasses or an augmented reality headset to view images popping out of the Hydrogen One's display, which also feature a more conventional 3D mode. You'll be able to interact with those images using a set of gestures. As of yet, cell phone carriers simply do not have any content capable of utilizing the technology. It wasn't just a concept but it's a real phone whose prototype was shown off in a video. Register for the event and stop by the exhibits area to sample games, movies and other content on the RED HYDROGEN ONE smartphone before it is released to the public.

Building off of the modular roots of the Moto Z, the Hydrogen One features a pogo pin system that will allow for add-ons that enhance the functionality of the phone over time. Indeed, the company blames some of its delays on carrier certification.
