Anatoly Ykovenko, co-founder and CEO of Solana Labs, revealed to The Block that the Solana Mobile Chapter 2 – the successor to Solana Mobile Saga – has garnered 60,000 pre-orders in less than 3 weeks since its launch.

Solana Mobile Chapter 2 was announced on January 16th, boasting improved specifications and a lower price compared to the Saga. The pre-order price for Chapter 2 is currently $450, more than half the $1000 price tag of the previous Saga. Chapter 2 is expected to be released in 2025.

Initially launched in June 2022, the Solana Mobile Saga was priced at $1,000, later reduced to $599 due to disappointing sales. However, by December 15th, 2023, the phone was sold out following developments surrounding the Solana ecosystem.

The memecoin Bonk’s announcement of a “super-value” airdrop for Saga buyers made it a hot commodity, selling out within just 1 week.

Other projects on Solana such as Mad Lads, Jupiter, Tensor, and Backpack quickly followed Bonk’s marketing strategy and announced airdrops for Chapter 2 buyers. With hopes of capitalizing on the previous version, many people purchased with the intention of making a profit rather than just using the smartphone.
