The Web3 Smartphone📱is Finally Here!!!
Subtle Bits of Crypto - Week 3, April 2023
Solana Labs launched Saga Web3 Smartphone
Every time Solana seems to be done and dusted it comes with something new that refuses to die down.
Solana’s much-awaited flagship Web3 smartphone has finally been launched this week.
The Saga Phone.
What's so Special about this Phone?
It is one of the first phones that Web3 support truly built into it from the start.
Let’s look at the Specs first.
OS - Android 13
RAM - 12GB
Processor - Snapdragon 8+ Gen1
Size - 6.67 inches
Storage - 512GB
Camera - 50 Megapixels
Screen - OLED Display
At a decent price of $1000 apiece.
Looks like a decent Andriod phone, where is the promised Web3 elements?
It comes with a built-in Crypto Wallet called Seed Vault.
Seed Vault is abstracted even from the Andriod OS and only you can access the private keys stored in the wallet.
You can quickly buy/sell NFTs or swap tokens by signing transactions with the biometric sensors.
Music - Audius Dapp
Phantom Dapp Wallet - Of course for all Solana fanbois!
NFT Marketplace Dapp
Web3 Camera App
Pictures taken through this app can be minted into NFTs with the Minty Fresh Dapp.
A $1,000 flagship smartphone certainly isn’t for everyone, nor is the emphasis on Web3 use cases. Saga phones certainly give a glimpse into how Web3 elements can be integrated into everyday devices and almost feel native.
Among its peer group of expensive smartphones, the Saga is a pretty sharp offering—and its Solana integration is an exciting and promising twist that could ultimately pay off for users as a mobile hub for decentralized apps and services. But that’s an open question for now.
