Solana Labs Launches Flagship Android-Based Crypto And Web 3.0 Smartphone; Solana Up 6%

Solana Labs (SOL) aims to bring blockchain technology to people by launching a crypto- and Web 3.0-centric smartphone called ‘SAGA’. Solana co-founder Raj Gokal explained that they chose the name SAGA because it means that the story of crypto is still being written.

This smartphone will support Google’s Android OS and is up for pre-orders in the US for a starting price of $1,000. It has top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 which is based on TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process, a 6.67 inch OLED display, 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage.
