12GB is far more better and offers a great balance, even you can play Wii games in Dolpin Emulator using 4K resolution and it takes almost 12GB RAM and it's the most extreme scenario.

18gb RAM? i don't know if the SD888 can support that, and plus we can have max 16gb LPDDR5/4x RAM. it will be interesting to see how they pull that off

KondriX, 01 Mar 2021Ha, even my Windows PC has 16 Gb of Ram and I never used it... moreSo lazy devs can give even less crap about optimizations. I mean why bother optimizing anything when you can just throw more RAM at the problem? There is just no way phones would need more than 8GB at the moment when 16GB is a mainstream on desktop systems.

Wowowowowo!!! You see gaming phones are the cutting edge. Period.

Ha, even my Windows PC has 16 Gb of Ram and I never used it all.. Why would you need so much on a phone, really?
