It won t be an exaggeration to say that modern-day smartphones are (almost) mini computers, having everything from multi-core CPUs to quad-camera systems. But even with all that, it seems manufacturers want to keep cramming as much hardware as they can in their smartphones, even if it has little to no bearing on real-world performance and user experience.

Just yesterday, Xiaomi launched the Mi MIX 3, its new flagship mobile phone, whose top-of-the-line variant comes with an insane 10GB of RAM, a first for any smartphone. But if a new report is to be believed, the Mi MIX 3 could very well be the first of a new wave of smartphones packed with absurdly-high hardware specifications.

Quoting a recent report from LEI Technology, T3 has said that the next-generation flagships from Samsung and Huawei – most likely to be called Galaxy S10 and P30 Pro, respectively could come with a ridiculous 12GB of RAM. That much RAM would most likely be reserved for the top-end variants of the smartphones.

If the report from LEI Technology is indeed true, Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro would be significant step-ups from their respective predecessors Galaxy S9+ and P20 Pro at least as far as the RAM is concerned.

Currently, no Android application (or even the OS itself) is demanding enough to require this much RAM for its functioning, so it ll be interesting to see what extra functionalities (if any) the Galaxy S10 and P30 Pro come with to justify that (alleged) 12GB of RAM inside them.
