First Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Phone Is Here: It is fair to say that we have been anticipating the first smartphones to use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor ever since its announcement. The first Snapdragon 8+Gen 1 phone has arrived, and it is from Solana Mobile; thus, it seems that the wait is over. Here is the pertinent information.
Solana Mobile’s Saga Introduced
The first Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phone, the Saga, has been unveiled by Solana Mobile. It was created in collaboration with OSOM. The smartphone unveiled by OSOM last year, the OV1, is now Solana’s Saga phone; it is also disclosed.
The Saga phone has a 6.67-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate in addition to the most recent Snapdragon processor. It has 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. A 50MP primary camera and a 12MP ultra-wide lens are also included. A 16MP front camera is also included.
It boasts a 4,100mAh battery, a fingerprint reader on the back, and wireless charging capabilities. The appearance closely resembles OSOM’s OV1 phone, which also has a flat-edged design and an asymmetrical triangle-shaped back camera hump.
The key feature of this phone is how it is intended to allow bitcoin capabilities and bring them to the mobile, even if the high-end spec sheet is a highlight. This is intended for those completely immersed in the crypto, Web3, and NFT universes. The Solana blockchain supports the “decentralized applications” that come with the phone.
In 2023, the US, Canada, the EU, and the UK will be able to purchase the Saga phone. Pre-orders have already started. It costs $1,000 (about Rs 78,300).
Additionally, Solana Mobile has unveiled the open dApp Store known as the Solana Mobile Stack SDK (decentralized apps). The Saga Pass, accessible to Saga early adopters, has also been launched. The NFT-equipped Saga Pass is “the initial step towards influencing the path of the Solana Mobile Stack” and comes with NFT.
