The OSOM Solana Saga is a phone that mostly appeals to crypto enthusiasts, but before to taking on its current Web3 focus, we originally learned about it as the OSOM OV1, a successor to the Essential PH-1 that was created by the same team but without the Andy Rubin saga.
With the final release of that phone drawing near, we now have more information about its internals courtesy to a new spec sheet published by the firm. It certainly appears to be a powerful phone that won’t have to take second place to the greatest Android phones now available.
Before it is released, the Solana Saga smartphone’s official spec sheet reveals a lot of information about the device, and once it is, it will undoubtedly rank among the best on the market.
A powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of storage, as well as a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, are just some of the features it has to offer. This is only the beginning.
It will also come with a 50MP main rear camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and it will come pre-installed with a lite, “clean” flavour of Android 13.

The Solana Saga is the hotly anticipated crypto phone made by OSOM, slated to launch in early 2023.
What’s more intriguing, though, is the construction of the Saga, which has a titanium frame and a ceramic back.
Those are the same components that were once used by the Essential PH-1.
For all the shortcomings the phone might have had, the build quality wasn’t one of them; it felt incredibly substantial in the hand, and it appears that the Solana Saga will also feel that way.
Additionally, it weighs 247 grammes, which should contribute to the robust feel.
However, the battery can be one area where the phone isn’t performing as well.
With a 4,110 mAh battery, it’s not the tiniest phone on the market, but you might want to read reviews before purchasing one because there’s a good possibility it won’t be up to grade.
Similar sized smartphones, like the 6.7-inch Google Pixel 7 Pro, are available with batteries up to 5,000 mAh.
If you desire one, you may order it now with a $100 deposit and it will ship early in the next year for a total cost of $1,000.
If you don’t like all that crypto stuff, don’t worry; OSOM has already confirmed that you can turn it all off if you so choose.
