Why do we need Web3 device?
As per the statistics, all over the world, there are around 133.4 million Android Mobile Phone users. Also, in the current Android market, there are 3 billion active Android devices, and numerous Software Development kit, but there are no such devices, which focuses on web3 applications. Solana Lab’s Web3-enabled smartphone’ Saga could act as a catalyst for the mass adoption of cryptos and Blockchain Applications. If we look now, there are only 10 million users are actively using the Web3 Applications and to make this number to 1 Billion, this device and the SMS SDK could play a major role.
Solana Saga – the next-gen Web3-enabled Smartphone.
Coming to the flagship Device, Solana web3 mobile offers standard features that most Android Devices offer. But the topping of the cake is the hardware Vault, integrated into the device. And this is what the Anatoly Yakovenko, Cofounder, and Solana Labs Felt was a missing part in devices.
The inception of the Solana Saga device was laid when he met Jason Keats – Founder of OSOM Products who had previously worked at Essential- A startup that made Android devices from scratch. The OSOM V1 – the android Device by OSOM would be rebranded as Solana Saga.
Some of the Solana web3 mobile features are given below —
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Processor
- 512 GB Internal Storage
- 12 GB RAM
- And 6.67 OLED display.
- Google Application Suites
These specifications are quite similar to any mid-range standard Android device by Samsung or Google.
Want to get this Device for Building Applications or for daily use purposes?
As per the official Announcement made, Solana Saga would be initially available in the US, CA, EU, and the UK to start with. Anyone residing in these countries can pre-book this device on their official device @ store.solanamobile.com. Readers staying in other countries can still join the newsletter subscription and the waitlist.
If anyone wants to book this device needs to pay around USD 100 as the booking amount.
If you are a Web3 Developer and want to reach a mass audience, then the Solana Mobile Software Development Kit could be a boon for you.
What is Solana Mobile Software Development Kit and How does it Work?
Solana Mobile Stack SDK aims to offer a tech stack with all the key technologies that enable Web3 Application Development. With this SDK Developers, could easily integrate the Solana Network and build various Applications that can work natively with any Android Device.
The SDK offers all the libraries that can help developers to build wallets and Applications like cryptocurrency exchanges, staking, and lending applications. This would help developers to improve the end-to-end user experience for the existing crypto users and Solana Community Members.
Some of the Key Features of Solana Mobile Stack SDK are following.
Mobile Wallet Adapter
Mobile Wallet adapter would help developers to offer the signing services to the different applications built using the existing technologies like React Native or Kotlin. Although this is announced along with their Saga Flagship Solana Mobile Phone it is easy to integrate with any android tech stack or a device.
A seed Vault is a system, that aims to help developers to store their private keys associated with various wallet Applications. For, devices that do not have any hardware vault, for that developers can use the Seed Vault simulator. But this seed Vault simulator does not offer any production level secured signing yet. Hence, it should be only used while testing and developing mobile Wallet Applications.
The Solana Pay was launched initially, but now this will come as a part of the Solana Mobile Stack. Developers can now easily integrate Solana Pay into their Applications. Solana Pay works similar to other payment gateways available and the existing technology can be leveraged to capture QR codes, messages, NFC taps, and much more.
How to get early Access to the Solana Mobile Stack SDK?
For initial developers, there is a waitlist maintained, where they need to register. Based on the priority criteria, the developers would be given early access. Developers need to take part in the testing and development of basic applications for Solana SMS and Saga device.
The amount of innovation seen in the Web3 space is quite an extravaganza. But there are still some missing elements and a long distance to its mass adoption. Solana taking such initiative could help different developers and Web3 companies to solve such problems and provide solutions that can reach to masses. No matter, what wallet you use to store cryptocurrencies, but hardware wallet is considered to be quite secure. And having that integrated with a mobile phone could be quite great for the people, who do the regular crypto transactions.
Also, if you are a developer and looking for some secure SDK to provide an infrastructure for the users in any mobile Device Application, then this could be the best thing to use. Lately, a lot of blockchain applications are launching, but there is huge friction to reach a mass audience. This can accelerate that process, and maybe you can find the next million users for your Application.
