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.

    All of it music, all from CDs that I own.

    I readily agree that not everyone is so heavily into music, but some are.

    Say you compress each CD to about 160MB (320kbps mp3s I think): 1563 CDs at 25$ a CD costs you some $40k... Putting aside the storage space issue, I think you've crossed the hobby bridge pass the passion crossroads into the dependency bad neighborhoods area.

      So your iGadget, with its 256MB, is a very early generation MP3 player?

      Say you compress each CD to about 160MB (320kbps mp3s I think)

      Your one CD just filled most of your 256MB of Flash. You'll probably want to compress your CD to 64kbps. The sound quality will be crap compared to your preferred 320kbps, but you'll be able to fit several CDs of music onto your iGadget.

      It should be pointed out that your iGadget's meager 256 MB of Flash has one major benefit over the Otto phone's 256GB of ROM: your flash storage is rewritable. You can erase and replace the handful of CDs' music. ROMs, unless you have a personal burner, are factory-set. It's worse than when Steve Jobs forced that U2 album on everyone. If Otto puts the album in ROM, you're stuck with it.

        There is no goddamn 256 GB of ROM. It's flash storage.

          RTFS. Then RTFA. R-O-M spells "ROM" -- read-only memory - not "flash". If the PR flack/article author insists on referring to the wrong type of storage and the editors neglect to point out an obvious stupid mistake and a commenter goofs up their megs and gigs then it behooves us to make fun of the lot of them. <grin>
