Vivo Xplay 7 leaked; first phone with 10GB of RAM
The Vivo Xplay 7 turns out to be the second Vivo phone this year to turn heads and do something that’s a first in the smartphone industry. The Xplay 7 is touted to be the first phone to sport a mind-boggling 10GB of RAM. Yeah, you heard it right!
Vivo has been going all-out to establish itself as a serious contender in the smartphone race. The Xplay 7 logically seems to be the next step in that direction. The Xplay7 is Vivo’s next flagship which will be the successor to the Xplay6 that was launched back in 2016. Recently the phone has been the victim of a couple of leaks that surfaced on Weibo; the Twitter of China.
And if you think that the RAM is the only thing that’s over-the-top, you’re definitely in for more surprises. The Xplay 7 is reported to have a 4K OLED display which will most probably be bezel-less with an 18:9 aspect ratio. And true to most phones that have been released off-late, the phone will have a dual rear camera setup with 4X optical zoom. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC which will make this phone, Vivo’s only phone to use a Snapdragon SoC.
What we need to consider is if beyond a point this extra RAM actually helps bump up the user experience and phone speeds or just add to the cost with negligible utility.
Earlier this year, Vivo displayed the first phone in the world to have an in-display fingerprint sensor; the X20 Plus UD. And if the pictures leaked online are to be believed, the Xplay 7 is also expected to borrow this under-display fingerprint sensor from the X20 Plus UD. In term of storage, the phone will come in two variants – a 256GB & a 512GB one, both hefty enough to bare most storage loads.
Now let’s get back to the monstrous RAM that this phone is rumored to have. Mobile phone manufacturers have been constantly pushing the envelope in terms of filling the phone upto the brim with the latest and greatest of all technologies. Talking about RAM specifically, most phones have RAM that are equal to or sometimes even more than an average laptop. The usability of RAM over 4GB has been in questioning ever since 6GB & 8GB phones became common in the market. What we need to consider is if beyond a point this extra RAM actually helps bump up the user experience and phone speeds or just add to the cost with negligible utility. Anyway, inspite of questions like these we welcome such advances in tech with open arms.
