As smartphones become more powerful and run more and more complex applications, phone memory becomes more important. For that purpose, Samsung wants to know that if you buy a Galaxy S10 or S10 + you get at least 8 GB of RAM.
The company said so much to Android Polis when asked about the RAM situation on the new models. Apparently, some of the demonstration hardware before release "only" showed 6 GB when the specifications were checked in the Settings menu, causing confusion among the enthusiast conscious.
Samsung's own site feeds some of the erroneous information with its specifications It does not clarify which versions of the phone receive 6GB, 8GB or a massive 12GB of memory. At present, it looks like only the cheapest version of the cheaper Galaxy S10e ("e" stands for "essential") will be equipped with 6 GB of memory – all "regular" S10 and S10 Plus models get at least 8 GB. Some versions of the most expensive 1 TB memory card Galaxy S10 + will have up to 12 GB, matching the bomber specification for Galaxy Fold.
8 GB may seem like a headphone for a phone, especially considering that some new laptops are still sold with only 4. But mobile memory is a big thing, especially among those phone buyers it is likely to pre-order new devices. One of the most common complaints about Google's own Pixel 3 phones is that they only have 4 GB at their high price level.
