Solana Reveals Partnership with Google Cloud and Details about Smartphone



Solana, a decentralized blockchain platform, announced that the preorders for its upcoming smartphones will start in early 2023, however, it did not set a date for the availability of these phones.

This announcement was revealed during the ecosystem’s annual gathering at Breakpoint 2022 in Libson, held from November 4 to 7, according to Cointelegraph.

The Solana mobile team pointed out that their smartphone is made for people as it securely stores the private keys of crypto wallets. It will be powered by a Qualcomm chipset sporting an Arm-based SoC, allowing for higher productivity.

Solana said that it would launch its dApp store, which will be based on Web 3.0 technology without any fees or charges, promising those who are interested that the submissions would open in January 2023.

During the four-day conference, Solana’s new partnership with Google Cloud caught the attention as Google Cloud is building a block-producing Solana validator to participate in and validate the network.

Google Cloud is currently working with Solana to bring its Blockchain Node Engine to the Solana ecosystem. Blockchain Node Engine is a fully managed node-hosting service that can reduce the need for node operations. Therefore, more users can run the Solana node in less time through the addition of Solana to the Blockchain Node Engine.

According to the partnership deal, Google Cloud will bring indexing data from the Solana network into BigQuery, a fully-managed, serverless data warehouse that enables scalable analysis over petabytes of data.

The SOL native token spiked by 15% following Google Cloud’s announcement.

Solana’s current price is $35.69 at the time of this writing, with a 24-hour trading volume of over $2.46 billion. Solana has increased by over 3.5% in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
