OKX said in an announcement on Tuesday that the partnership makes it one of the first exchanges to have their app available to users via the Solana Web3 smartphone. This will help unlock the Web3 for Saga users tapping into OKX products, the exchange added.

This partnership exemplifies the boundless potential of Web3. By uniting OKX’s suite of next-gen products with the Solana Saga, we are dramatically expanding everyday access to the open, decentralized future that Web3 enables,” Jason Lau, OKX Chief Innovation Officer, said in a comment.

Solana Mobile, a subsidiary of Solana Labs, unveiled its crypto-ready, Android-based mobile phone in April 2023, before a public sale opened on May 8.

The smartphone offers users self-custody for crypto assets, and comes with a Seed Vault that helps protect a user’s private keys via secure hardware and AES encryption. Saga users can access Web3 native dApps.
