Solana Mobile’s highly-anticipated and soon-to-drop Saga smartphone has sold 100,000 pre-orders in the last 30 days, according to Solana Labs.

According to an announcement from Solana Mobile 2 on the social media platform X, the phone’s current special pre-order price will close in two days.

“100,000 preorders in less than 30 days. We’re floored by the demand and truly grateful for the overwhelming support.

Now that we’ve hit this milestone, the Founder Window and pre-order price of $450 will close in 48 hours. Your chance to join is now!”

According to Solana Mobile, the goal is to have that pre-order deposit amount cover the entire cost of the new phone.

Solana Labs kicked off pre-orders for the new version of its crypto-focused smartphone in January, weeks after the first edition sold out in a frenzy.

Solana Mobile offered customers a “Founder Window” to deposit $450 for the upcoming “Chapter 2” phone, which the project says is expected to ship in the first half of 2025.

In December, Solana Mobile announced that its web3-enabled phones had sold out. One possible contributing factor to the sales: buying a Saga came with a reward of free Bonk (BONK), a Solana-based Dogecoin (DOGE) competitor.
