Nobody's made a phone quite like thebefore -- a $1,200 handset with modular parts (bolt-on batteries and swappable cameras), a rugged build with scalloped edges and squared-off corners instead of curves, and .
And while the jury's still out on many of those features ---- we're getting way closer. Today, Red is hosting a private event for a small selection of its faithful fans to get a look at an early developer unit dubbed "Houdini" ahead of , and popular gadget YouTuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) has just published the first unboxing video.
As you can see in the video above, there's not a lot to unbox in this early Houdini model -- there's a thank-you card, a very fancy medallion and the phone itself, but it's neat to see that the power adapter also includes the same scalloped edges as the phone.
MKBHD's video also shows off port placement and gives us a better idea of how the phone's buttons and fingerprint sensor fit into those scalloped edges too, as well as a few of Red's included apps. Apparently, the camera is still a work in process.
