“These smartphones pack in more RAM than an everyday laptop”
It was just yesterday that smartphones with 8GB RAM started to make their way to the market. But now it seems that time isn’t far when phones with 10GB of RAM will be all over the market. In the simplest terms, more RAM can let more apps run in the background without slowing your phone down. And with the mobile devices becoming more versatile than PCs, a higher amount of Random Access Memory will definitely come in handy. Since the phonemakers have already started handsets with such high capacity of RAM and rumour mill also churning news for upcoming devices with 10GB of RAM, we thought it would be great if we can curate a list of devices that ship with 10-gigs of RAM.
Xiaomi’s flagship Mi Mix 3 the flagship device was launched a few months ago, and the company also teased a special edition of the smartphone, dubbed the Mi Mix 3 Forbidden City. This variant of the handset gets 10GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. It also has a gold engraving of a mythical creature on its back. Additionally, the Mix 3 can be wirelessly charged through the charger provided in the box.

OPPO Find X (rumoured)
OPPO’s Find X is one of the most innovative device we’ve ever seen. It’s curved glass body, stealth cameras with a sliding mechanism, and that true bezel-less front draws you towards itself. Well, it seems that OPPO is working on an upgraded variant of the Find X with 10gigs of RAM to keep up with the competition. Talking of the specs, the phone comes with the Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip, up to 256GB of storage and a 3,700mAh battery with VOOC fast charging support.
OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition (rumoured)
Lately, there have been talks of OnePlus launching a special edition 6T in collaboration with McLaren, with the new smartphone aptly dubbed the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. The tagline for the upcoming smartphone is ‘Salute to Speed’, which indicates that it will be loaded to the gills with top-notch specs identical to the regular OnePlus 6T. However, there will be a few under-the-hood upgrades according to the latest leak that suggests 10GB RAM and Warp Charge tech, which can charge enough to last a day within just 20 minutes.

Sadly, apart from the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, it remains to be seen if any of these phones with 10GB RAM will be making their way to our shores.
