Solana, the leading blockchain company, has released its first Web3 Android smartphone, Saga, which is now available for pre-sales and will be available for new customers on May 8.
Saga has a dual-camera system with 50MP main and 12MP ultrawide resolutions and a 16MP selfie camera. The back is made of ceramic, the frame is made of stainless steel, and the accents are made of titanium.
Saga has been effortlessly incorporated into the Solana Mobile Stack, improving the user signing experience and opening up a new realm of mobile Web3 experiences. The SDK contains all the resources to quickly create and launch an SMS app.
According to Solana, the smartphone contains an app store that allows for the easy distribution of Web3-native apps while avoiding the limits and high commission fees in conventional Web2 app marketplaces.
16 dApps were presumably launched, including NFTs, DAOs, staking, etc. Some crypto apps now accessible in Saga include Phantom, Solflare, Ledger, Squads, Marinade.finance, Jupiter, Mango, Nokiamon, Minty Fresh, TIEXO, Dialect, Audius Music, urFeed, and more.
After successfully configuring their device, Saga customers can claim a one-of-a-kind Saga Genesis token NFT that is specifically attached to their device. This unique NFT will be the foundation of Saga’s rewards program, offering users intriguing incentives and perks.
Customers who pre-ordered Saga can now do so in the United States, European Union (EU), United Kingdom (UK), Canada, Switzerland, Australia, and New Zealand. For anyone who missed the Saga pre-order window, new orders will be accepted starting May 8th, with delivery set to begin in the coming weeks.
In June, Solana announced the release of ‘Saga’, the first Web3 Android smartphone. Saga includes the latest flagship Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 Cellular System, as well as a 6.67′′ OLED display, 12 GB RAM, 512 GB storage, and other intriguing features. As described by Solana, Saga is a “sleek and beautifully designed flagship Android phone with premium components from the ultra-experienced team at OSOM’’.
In addition to the production of Saga, we encountered Vertu‘s Web3 phone. These two examples show that the smartphone manufacturing is combining with the Web3 space.
