Solana Mobile shares important update ahead of version 2 launch

Solana Mobile 2.0 preorders are still open and an important update has been released for community members to keep an eye on for a major incentive event next week.

Solana Mobile Edition 2 supporters will get incentives

According to Solana Mobile, customers who join the waiting list for the second edition of the phone through preorder will get some non-transferable tokens, including non-fungible tokens (NFTs), as incentives.

Amidst the hiccups in Solana’s early phone saga, Layer-1 Protocol decided it was time to release ‘Chapter 2’ of the device. Based on the details offered about the phone, the Solana Mobile Phones will retain some of the key features of the 2 Saga which include ‘Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1, 12GB RAM, 512GB Flash, 6.67” OLED display’ specifications .

Solana Mobile 2.0 will also feature an integrated crypto wallet, customized Android software, and a “dApp store” for crypto applications. Like every upgraded product, Solana mentioned that the new phone will be affordable while incorporating new hardware specifications.

The Solana Saga was priced at $1,000 at launch, although it was later sold on eBay for up to $3,200. On the other hand, Solana Mobile 2.0 will be priced lower than its predecessor. Currently, it is available for pre-order for $450.

In the span of 48 hours, following the announcement of its preorder program, the protocol registered over 30,000 units of paid Solana Mobile. Going forward, the promise of incentives could drive demand for phones to unprecedented levels within days or weeks of launch, as happened in the Solana saga.

Lots of incentives for Solana phones

Prior to Solana Saga’s listing on eBay, demand for the phone had reached extremely high levels, largely contributed by conversations about BONK, the leading memecoin within the Solana ecosystem.

Every Solana Saga buyer was eligible for an attractive amount of 30,000 BONK. This revelation caused huge demand for the phone and it eventually sold out. The desire to get a piece of the pie is what caused valuations of the device to skyrocket on eBay.

For the new Solana mobile version, it is not yet confirmed whether any BONK airdrop gifts will be added to the incentives. However, its integration could go a long way in boosting demand for the device. The incentive program announced for Chapter 2 phones could do much the same thing as the BONK airdrop did for Saga last December.
