RED’s Hydrogen One phone makes a cameo in the ‘F9’ trailer
It’s not shocking that people in the movie business would have an affinity for the high-priced but ultimately disappointing project, since they’re likely to work with the company’s cameras. Still, this isn’t the only recent appearance of the Hydrogen One, more than a year after it debuted and months after RED announced it would abandon the phone business.

Marvel’s Runaways wrapped up its run at the end of 2019, and while that show has also come to an end — now that the Fox/Disney/MCU merger has completed — it also featured the Hydrogen One. In that show they called it the Corvus Phone by Wizard that would help people “find their flock” (shocker: it’s evil), but as PC Mag points out, there’s no mistaking which device it is. I guess in a fantasy universe the Hydrogen One works as a strange-but-recognizable device that most people don’t know exists, and there are probably more than a few unused handsets laying around.
