OPPO Find X to get 10GB RAM version, spotted at TENAA

There have been rumors of a 10GB RAM smartphone in development for a while now. Vivo's yet unreleased Xplay7 was rumored to come with 10GB RAM and the ASUS ROG Phone was also supposed to come with 10GB of RAM. It appears OPPO will be the first to launch a 10GB RAM phone judging by an updated TENAA listing of the Find X.

The Find X originally comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage but Chinese leaker @UniverseIce shared a photo of an updated listing that shows the Find X will get a new 10GB RAM + 256GB ROM model.

We were able to confirm that the leak is genuine as the full TENAA specs listing for the Find X (PAFM00 model) now has a 10GB RAM variant. The update to the listing was made yesterday. The rest of the specs will remain the same as the other variant.

TENAA is China's phone regulatory body.

    WTF am I gonna do with 256GB of ROM?

    I've wondered that when I've seen phones advertising how much ROM they have. That's a whole lot of unremovable crapware.

    Who gives a flying duck how much ROM a phone has? RAM, storage & expandability, screen size & resolution, camera characteristics: those are the kinds of things people are interested in. "Now with Facebook in ROM" is not a selling feature.

    Ehhh, I'm pretty sure that was just a mistake in the article. Or had you already figured that out?

      Probably not a mistake in TFA, though you would expect a competent reporter to pick up on the error. I've looked up a few phones as a consideration for my next. A number of them highlight having large quantities of ROM without mentioning how much storage they have.

      More likely is that some marketing drone has a handbook of computer buzzwords from the '80s or early '90s and noticed that RAM and ROM were often used together, so in their minds ROM equates to hard drive (or, more generally, storage). Regardless of the reason, if a company's marketing people are too dumb to distinguish ROM from storage, they're not getting my money.
