Vivo's upcoming flagship, the Xplay 7, could be the first device to feature 10 GB of RAM. That's impressive, by all means, by we're not sure how useful it would actually be.

Vivo is on a roll. The company announced the launch of the Vivo X20 Plus UD last week, a device that was the first smartphone to feature the new under-display fingerprint sensor. Yet another pioneering device may be on the cards for Vivo, as a new leak has surfaced. This one points towards an upcoming flagship that will feature a whopping 10 GB of RAM.

RAM for smartphones has seen an explosive rise over the past 18 months. 2016 flagships like the Xiaomi Mi 5 featured 3 GB of RAM but 2017 saw the advent of smartphones with massive memory. The Asus Zenfone AR was the first device to be announced with 8 GB of RAM but it wasn't launched till months after, at which point the Nubia Z17 had already released. That made the ZTE flagship the first smartphone to hit shops with 8 GB of RAM. Other devices like the OnePlus 5T and Mi Mix 2 have since followed suit.

The new Vivo flagship, the Xplay7 could go above and beyond that, though. A leaked product slide indicates that it will feature a whopping 10 GB of RAM. We're not sure how useful that much memory would be, though, as even on PCs, 8 GB of RAM is just about enough for the average user. According to the same slide, the device could feature a 4K display and a Snapdragon 845. It's also likely to sport an under-display fingerprint sensor.

It's not preposterous, of course. The device's predecessor, the Xplay6 was released back in December 2016 with 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, and a QHD display. A proper flagship if there ever was one. The Xplay sporting the listed features wouldn't be surprising.
