An upgraded Oppo Find X will be the first smartphone with 10GB RAM

Earlier this year, we reviewed the Oppo Find X — one of the most gorgeous phones to ever hit the market. The Find X already stands out on its own thanks to its nearly bezel-less design and pop-out cameras, and now according to a new TENNA listing, it'll soon be the world's first phone to ship with 10GB of RAM.

Ice universe on Twitter shared the TENNA page (China's version of the FCC here in the U.S.), and sure enough, this model of the Find X clearly states it as having 10GB of RAM with 256GB of storage.

We aren't sure when this 10GB RAM monster will be available for purchase or how much it'll cost, but if it's already passing through the TENNA, those are details we should be getting soon.

Releasing the first phone with 10GB of RAM is likely a monument Oppo is thrilled to achieve, and while it's certainly exciting to think that we can cram so much power into a smartphone, we've still yet to see the true potential of phones with 6 or 8GB. This is more of a bragging right than offering anything substantial to the user, but in any case, it looks like 2018 will be the year of the 10GB RAM phone.

OPPO Find X review: A beautiful disaster

  • Question of the day, Is a 5GB phone good now, or do we really need 10
  • One does not simply satisfy with 5gb RAM
  • All your ram are belong to us!
  • New Pixels will only have 4GB and they are being released by the company that releases Android. Having said that, I would think 6GB should be the norm for a flagship in 2018 to future proof a little and for any customization manufacturers might add on top of Android. Not to mention, for however much you are spending on a phone they shouldn't be skimping on specs like this that are very cheap for them to include..
  • How do I go back in time to experience the 10GB RAM in smartphones?
  • Useless c.unts can't report anything right unless it's a paid advertisement. 2017 for ***** sake get the year right
  • Only slight overkill
  • But will it not snap like a twig on the bend test?
  • Again I make the comparison to the razor wars when they came out with a razor that had 2 blades, then 3, then 4, then 5...Like do you really need all of those blades? Not really. But whatever, make it, I won't buy it anyhow. It is Chinese crap that I won't touch.
  • Sidenote: the OP6 is fantastic!
  • Well, we already know from all those real-world speed tests that there is no functional difference between 6 and 8, so 10 is just for cheap bragging rights.
  • Wrong.... RAM is random access memory. The more RAM you have, the more open apps and web pages you can have before the CPU has little room left to do math. Your welcome for the tech lesson.
  • +1 be surprised the people that don't know the difference between ram and storage these days. ;)
  • And wasted RAM is jut as bad. 99.99% won't come close to using even 6GB.
  • I think this is because they are getting ready for the Virtual or Augmented Reality projects. More RAM, more potential multitasking power, but if battery technology does not improve tenfold, phones will die quickly. They'll all behave like an IPhone.
  • Yep - that was my thinking. Sizes of battery or battery technology is going to have to make a big jump... Correctly managing all that RAM is going to take some processing power... And I thought iPhones were really efficient on their battery use - no kidding
  • That's a good point!
  • The heck with all this ram. Start increasing batteries sizes with a new minimum of at least 5000 mAh. In addition to more efficient processors instead of more speed, speed, speed which hardly anyone uses anyway.
  • 👍
  • Yea meanwhile. Samsung ****** up by giving only the 512 version of the note 9 8 gigs. While others like myself got 6.
  • Next year. 2018 phones were only small upgrades not worth buying. Although my next phone is at least three years away.
  • Needs moar
  • Only because we need to run a million apps and services at the same time. More focus on results we can actually see like battery life and camera performance. These phones will not take advantage of 10gb of RAM unless they plan to introduce new use case scenarios that will. Dex maybe?
  • Gotta have room to load the spyware!
  • 10 GB is probably the minimum for Google Play Music app to not have to reload itself every time you switch back from Chrome.
