Anatoly Yakovenko, the co-founder of Solana Labs, claims that the launch of their new mobile phone could lead to an explosion in the number of potential users

On June 23, Solana Mobile, a subsidiary of Solana Labs, introduced Saga, “a flagship Android mobile phone with unique features and tightly integrated with the Solana blockchain, which facilitates and secures web3 transactions and the management of digital assets, such as tokens and NFTs.

Yakovenko had already said this about this project at the time:

Nearly 7 billion people use smartphones worldwide and more than 100 million people own digital assets – and both numbers will continue to rise. Saga sets a new standard for the web3 experience on mobile.

And Raj Gokal, co-founder of Solana Labs, said:

We chose the name Saga because crypto history is still being written. This is the next chapter in this story and we believe that opening up crypto to mobile will lead to greater adoption, better understanding, and more opportunity.

During a recent interview on the podcast “Bankless“, Yakovenko spoke about the next product “Sagaby Solana Labs. As The Daily Hodl reports, Yakovenko said:

The goal of this product is to build an awesome experience for signing for self-custody for those integrations between native apps and digital items, NFTs (non-fungible tokens), and all those things you want to do with the Web 3.0, just make it as amazing as using Apple Pay. Every time I use Apple Pay, I no longer need to enter another credit card. I say to myself ‘it does not suck’, [et] i want the same experience for crypto“.
