1. OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition

OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition back

The OnePlus 6T was already a great phone, featuring flagship-level hardware and an affordable price tag. But then the company launched a new version of the phone that packs in 10GB of RAM, 2GB more than what you can get from the regular version. However, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, sold in collaboration with the well-known UK-based supercar maker and F1 constructor, is still priced for far less than most phones with the same specs.

The phone has some visual differences as well. It’s made of a black carbon fiber design with McLaren’s logo and its trademark “Papaya Orange” color around the rim — even the phone’s in-display fingerprint reader shows some orange animation. Other specs and features include the Snapdragon 845 chipset, a 6.41-inch display, and 256GB of storage.

Aside from its 10GB of RAM, the biggest hardware difference on the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, compared to the standard version, is that it comes with a 30W “Warp charge 30” charger, which is supposed to give the phone a day’s worth of battery charge in just 20 minutes. Unfortunately, OnePlus isn’t selling the phone anymore, but you can still get it from Amazon via the button below.


OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition specs:

  • Display: 6.41-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 10GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 16 and 20MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 3,700mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


2. Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

The Mi Mix lineup of smartphone from Xiaomi has always presented cutting-edge hardware and features, and the Mi Mix 3 is no exception. While regular models of the phone come in 6GB and 8GB versions, there is a Forbidden City Special Edition version with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The drawback is that it was only released in China.

The Mi Mix 3 has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a 2,340 x 1,080 resolution and a 19.5:9 screen ratio. It also has a 93.4 percent screen-to-body ratio, thanks to the fact that its cameras slide out of the top of the phone when in use. The rear camera setup has dual 12MP sensors, with the primary shooter using a f/1.8 aperture with 1.4 micron pixels. The second sensor is a telephoto camera with a smaller f/2.4 aperture and 1.0 micron pixels.

The phone also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a 3,200mAh battery, with support for wireless charging, along with Android 9.0 Pie and Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 skin on top. As already mentioned, the 10GB version of the Mi Mix 3 is only available in China, so you’ll have to import it to get your hands on it.


Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 10GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 12 and 12MP
  • Front camera: 24 and 2MP
  • Battery: 3,200mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


3. Xiaomi Black Shark Helo

The Xiaomi Black Shark Helo is the second release in the gaming-themed Black Shark smartphone line. In addition to the standard models with 6GB and 8GB of RAM, Xiaomi released a version of the Black Shark Helo with 10GB of RAM, along with 256GB of storage. However, the phone is exclusive to certain markets and is not available in Europe or the U.S. 

The other hardware specs for the Black Shark Helo include a 6-inch 2,160 x 1,080 display, the Snapdragon 845 chipset, two rear cameras with 12MP and 20MP sensors, a 20MP front-facing camera, and a big 4,000mAh battery. However, this is supposed to be a gaming-themed phone, and the Black Shark Helo has features like Gamer Studio, which lets you customized the settings for things like processor speed, touch sensitivity, display refresh, network speed and more for specific games.

The 10GB version of the phone also ships with two game controllers, one for each side of the phone in landscape mode, so you can have more of a true console gaming experience. All these things combined make the Black Shark Helo one of the best phones with 10GB of RAM you can get.


Xiaomi Black Shark Helo specs:

  • Display: 6.01-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 10GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 20 and 12MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 8.0 Oreo


4. Nubia Red Magic Mars

Like the Xiaomi Black Shark Helo, the Nubia Red Magic Mars is the second in the Red Magic gaming-oriented smartphone series to be released by ZTE’s Nubia brand. The phone is available in the U.S. and Europe via Nubia’s website.

The Nubia Red Magic Mars is available with an optional game controller that connects to the side of the phone.

The phone has a large 6-inch display but uses an old-fashioned IPS LCD touchscreen. It does come with the Snapdragon 845 processor and Android 9.0 Pie, but there’s just one rear 16MP camera, along with an 8MP front camera and a 3,800mAh battery.

The Red Magic Mars adds in capacitive keys that serve as shoulder triggers for games, and Nubia sells an optional game controller that connects to the side of the phone. All in all, the Nubia Red Magic Red is an example of a phone that puts in high-end features like 10GB of RAM, but cuts corners in others (the LCD screen and the single rear camera).


Nubia Red Magic Mars specs:

  • Display: 6.01-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 10GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 16MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 3,800mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


5. Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition

10GB of RAM phones

Our final phone with 10GB of RAM is the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. In addition to a lot of memory, it has the Snapdragon 845 processor, 128GB of onboard storage, a 3,500mAh battery, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. However, the biggest feature on this handset, as you might have guessed from its name, is that it not only has a front 6.39-inch OLED 2,340 x 1,080 resolution screen, but also a 5.49-inch OLED 1,920 x 1,080 resolution display on the back.

Because there is such a display on the back, there’s no need for a front-facing camera on this phone. Instead, Vivo Next Dual Display Edition takes both regular and selfie images with its three rear camera sensors. There’s a 12MP f/1.79 main sensor, a 2MP secondary sensor that’s used to create depth effects, and a third time-of-flight (TOF) sensor that’s used to create 3D effects and used for augmented reality features.

The Vivo Next Dual Display Edition was not officially released in the U.S., but you can still get the international model on Amazon — check the price via the button below. However, it’s not backed by a warranty.


Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition specs:

  • Display: 6.30-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 10GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 12 and 2MP + ToF
  • Front camera: 12 and 2MP + ToF
  • Battery: 3,500mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


These are the best phones with 10GB of RAM in our opinion. We’ll make sure to update this post with new models once they are released.
