Previously, the company had set this milestone as a condition for the development of a second device.
According to Solana co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko, after receiving $45 million from pre-orders, it can be argued that the economy of selling a new smartphone is more viable than that of the first model.
The developers plan to create Saga 2 within a month. Delivery of the device to customers is scheduled for early 2025.
Solana Mobile does not intend to compete in technical specifications with flagships from Apple or Google and will instead focus on specific functions for cryptocurrency owners.
Yakovenko also added that 100,000 users are a critical mass in order to convince application developers to create games in the Solana ecosystem. The advantage of their app store will be the absence of the 20-30% commission charged by Apple and Google.
