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.

    That argument sounds really convincing, until you remember that Smalltalk-80 ran on a machine with 512KB of RAM and presented a graphical environment written entirely in a high-level language (JavaScript is a similar abstraction level to Smalltalk). Now, admittedly, Smalltalk-80 used 1-bit colour and bitmap fonts, so there's a good reason for a couple of orders of magnitude more RAM and CPU / GPU power if you want to have composited true colour displays and hinted vector fonts.
