Xiaomi could soon become part of an elite segment for smartphones. The company is reportedly working on a phone with 16GB RAM, which is offered by few brands right now. It’s funny that the thought of phones with 16GB RAM doesn’t shock us anymore. This has become possible ever since the 6 and 8GB RAM variants have become extremely common.

After all, you can get phones costing up to Rs 15,000 with 6GB RAM, making it easily accessible to consumers.
