RED's Hydrogen phone project is cancelled after the company founder Jim Jannard announced his retirement. 

In his post, Jannard shares that he has a few health issues and it's time for him to retire. As a result, he will be shutting down the Hydrogen project and ending his extensive career that has included Oakley and RED Digital Cinema.

RED announced the Hydrogen One smartphone in 2017 and it made headlines with new technologies such as a "holographic" display, its modular design and an advanced camera system. There were several delays until October 2018 when the Hydrogen One smartphone was eventually released. 

Hydrogen One smartphone users will continue to receive support in the future according to Jannard. He also teased the imminent launch of RED's next camera model, the Komodo 6K. RED Digiral Cinema will be led by Jarred , Tommy and Jamin.
