The first smartphone with 10 GB of RAM? Oppo Find X coming in a new variant and it's overkill!

The first smartphone with 10 GB of RAM? Oppo Find X coming in a new variant and it's overkill!
Tech fans out there probably remember the Oppo Find X — the phone with a mechanical slide-out camera that launched a few months ago. While it's only available in Eastern countries, it just looks so good and packs so much impressive tech that it managed to make headlines worldwide.

Well, Oppo is not done with the Find X just yet. Apparently, the company is about to launch a new revision of the phone, which features 256 GB of onboard storage and — get this — 10 GB of RAM!

A TENAA (Chinese registration agency) listing for an Oppo Find X with 10 GB of RAM has popped up and a screenshot of it is already making the rounds in leakster circles. It's assumed that a launch of this edition is imminent. But don't hold your breath for international availability — not unless you buy from e-retailers that don't mind shipping out of China.

This is not the first time we hear of a 10 GB RAM smartphone. Apparently, Asus was also experimenting with the idea sometime in late 2017. However, the chip was dropped due to the fact that it was a bit too thick. That doesn't seem to be a worry for Oppo this year, though. So, depending on when the new version of the Find X launches, this may be the first commercially-available smartphone with 10 GB of RAM!

Is this overkill? Well... yes, it is, very much so. Even 8 GB of RAM on an Android smartphone is a bit too much nowadays. Yes, powerusers love to have that headroom and future-proofing in massive amounts of RAM. We are just saying that you shouldn't be bummed out that you can't buy this smartphone. Now, put the credit card down and stop browsing obscure Chinese shopping websites!

Android is racing in bigger Ram, battery, storage and more cpu/gpu cores.

iPhone XS max 4 gig of ram already beats note 9 8 gig of ram variant lol. If you think it’s all about bigger massive hardware then you’re wrong and android needs more ram to keep up with iPhone.

First phone with $1500 price tag is not overkill infact it's rated 9.3 by PhoneArena. If someone wants to give more value to the customer it's overkill. Sold people are so crooked

The find x needs an under display fingerprint scanner.

Yeah, instant buy for me if it has that. And if they manage to make it ip67 it will be legendary.

Why do we keep needing more ram and cpu power with each new smartphone generation when at the end we, the end users, keep doing the same things we did 2-3 years ago - browsing, gaming, camera, gps, calls, messaging? There is something wrong in the mobile industry!

As programs get more advanced, they require more memory. Easy to explain.

More RAM are always welcome. IF people's understand what they are used for, but unfortunately alot doesn't understand that, incl. PhoneArena. RAM is not for powerusages or multitasking.

Huh? Yes, RAM is used for multi-tasking. Can't multi-task without it. Sheesh.

Random Access Memory (RAM) is the hardware in a computing device where the operating system (OS), application programs and data in current use are kept so they can be quickly reached by the device's processor.

So the RAM is there. But the CPU? Probably a mediatek.

Original has a snapdragon 845. Only thing this phone is missing is a fingerprintscanner. Ok and maybe ip67/68 rating.
