Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 packs up to 10GB of RAM and a stunning 93% screen-to-body ratio

Following a tease by the company's president back in August, Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has now officially announced its next all-screen monster handset, the Mi Mix 3.

Boasting a FHD+ AMOLED display with a stunning 93% screen-to-body ratio, the Mi Mix 3 also packs a powerful 2.8GHz Snapdragon 845 processor into its unique frame, along with the option of 6GB, 8GB or a whopping 10GB of RAM.

Those after the 10GB model will have to track down the 'Forbidden City' limited edition, which sports traditional Chinese styling, a 10W wireless Qi charger and a collectible statue.

All of the Mi Mix 3 phones will be exclusive to the Chinese market for now. The 10 GB version is priced at RMB 4,999 ($720).

Xiaomi also announced a gaming phone with up to 10 GB of RAM, the Black Shark Helo.

    Agree, but it's all marketing. Just like how people think more megapixels equals better camera. People compare phones based on specs like ram and the companies are responding to this. All New phones, at least the popular ones will smash like a terracotta pot if dropped, it would be awesome too seea stainless hardened unit. I guess they can't due to antenna location and RF attenuation. There's always plastics or built in silicone.

    I have an Asus ZenFone 5Z with 6gb ram and it never uses it all. Currently sitting at 2.6gb free and I have 50 tabs open in Firefox. 10gb is just silly but it'll still sell, especially given they used the old marketing trick of limiting the production of them to generate demand.
