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.

    If I could write three million dollars worth of code with sixteen megabytes in 1992, why can't we _all_ do so in 2018?

    Over-reliance on abstraction and bloated libraries that rely on bloated libraries that rely on bloated libraries.

    In 1992, you cared about optimizing code and reducing footprint size because you knew computers weren't that fast and didn't have a lot of memory or storage. (I remember the time: 16MB was an extravagance for my then-high-end 486/66, adding $1200 to the cost of my computer. 8MB was a lot and 4MB more common.) Today, nobody thinks twice about optimization. Processors are fast and getting faster every year, RAM and storage keeps getting faster and cheaper. Nobody has to take pride in shaving minutes (or hours) of runtime or kilobytes off their code anymore because the bloat will be absorbed by the next generation of hardware. It's quite sad, really.
