OSOM is a brand new smartphone company that has been formed by some former employees of the Essential Company. It had already been confirmed a couple of months ago that the company was working on this device at a later point this year. The phone dubbed the OSOM OV1 has reportedly now been named the Solana Saga.
Solana Saga will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen1 chip:
The brand’s first phone is set to be a web3-focused Android smartphone, the rebranded version no longer carries the OSOM tag with it as it is now being launched by Solana Mobile which is a subsidiary of Solana Labs.
