Solana Mobile launches Saga, a smartphone with Web3 application access
Early in 2023, Solana’s (SOL) revolutionary blockchain-powered smartphone might be available to customers.
This comes at a time when governance difficulties affecting Solana (SOL) have driven the price of this virtual currency down. The new gadget, known as Saga, is tightly connected with the Solana blockchain. The objective is to provide Web3 and NFTs users with a novel access experience.
Historically, blockchain-enabled cellphones were marketed as the next generation of cryptocurrencies. However, major smartphone manufacturers have produced new alternatives that have rendered these handsets almost obsolete. However, Solana is approaching this gadget from a different angle.
Solana Mobile, a division of Solana Labs, has developed the new smartphone known as Saga, according to a recent press release.
This smartphone, constructed of stainless steel, titanium, ceramic, and Victus, aims to become the next blockchain-based flagship smartphone. The objective is to compete with renowned smartphone brands like Apple, Google, and Samsung by providing people with unique crypto market solutions.
Anatoly Yakovenko, a co-founder of Solana, commented: “Nearly 7 billion individuals use smartphones worldwide, and more than 100 million people own digital assets; both of these figures will continue to rise. Saga establishes a new benchmark for the mobile Web3 experience.” OSOM, an industry-leading Android development firm, created and built the new smartphone.
According to the source, the Saga would include a 6.67-inch OLED display and 12 GB of RAM. The storage choice for the newest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile platform will be 512 GB. In addition, it is important to note that the smartphone will contain a Secure Element that is embedded within the phone.
This makes it easy for users to protect their keys and seed phrases from attackers and hackers. Let’s not forget that the bitcoin business has been distinguished by assaults on people whose devices contained digital money.
This smartphone costs $1,000, however, pre-orders for the Saga need a $100 deposit that will be refunded in full. The objective is to provide developers with the chance to test the smartphone and its capabilities before its release to the general public.
Remember that other devices, including the iPhone Pro, begin at $1,000 in the United States. In Europe, the pricing is a little higher, costing at least €1,300.
