Back in 2015, Asus launched the world’s first smartphone with 4GB of RAM. Now in 2019, the companies have started selling smartphones with a whopping 12GB of RAM. We are seeing these smartphones when most of the people are still opting for laptops with just 8GB of RAM. Unlike iOS on iPhones, the custom UI’s are not helping Android to offer better RAM management.
Even with 12GB of RAM, the Android smartphone with a badly implemented UI can still offer laggy experience. While much of the hardware on these flagship Android smartphones remain the same, the brands now working on offering better software experience to make their device stand apart from the crowd.
Below is the list of all the Android smartphones with 12GB of RAM which are on sale in India and abroad.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
Samsung launches three new smartphones under the Galaxy S10 series. The Galaxy S10 Plus is the bigger and the costlier smartphone among the three. It sports a bigger 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display and comes powered by 8nm Exynos 9820 octa-core processor in India. The Galaxy S10 Plus is the first ever smartphone on a global scale to come with 12GB of RAM. Along with 12GB of RAM, the device also offers a whopping 1TB of onboard storage. In terms of optics, the device sports triple cameras on the rear and dual cameras on the front. The 12GB RAM variant of Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus comes only in Porcelain White (ceramic) color and is priced at INR 1,17,900. As of now, it is the only 12GB RAM smartphone to be on sale in India.
