After many months of rumors and speculation, it seems the world will soon see a handset shipped with 6GB of RAM.
Chinese mobile manufacturer Vivo has recently confirmed that its new XPlay 5 flagship phone will feature not only 6GB RAM, but also the latest Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor.
This comes as both Samsung and LG announced new flagships of their own at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, however both devices will only have 4GB of RAM.
Making their announcement on their Weibo page, Vivo is set to officially unveil the XPlay 5 on March 1 in Beijing. However, no release date, in China or elsewhere, has been set yet.
The Vivo XPlay 5 is also said to feature a dual-curved display, a huge 4,300 mAh battery, 16 and 8MP cameras and sized at six inches.
As mobile handsets, particularly flagships, become more and more powerful, it seems inevitable we start to see specs like 6GB of RAM shipped in such devices.
While we will not see a Samsung, LG or Sony phone with RAM bigger than 4GB any time soon, it may be up to how well devices like the XPlay 5 will be received and if they can sell to warrant all that memory.
What do you think? Is the 6GB RAM overkill or will it be a winner for Vivo? Do you want to own such a device? Leave your comments below!
