List of all 6 GB RAM Android phones – Specs and price

So you just got a swanky new phone with 4 GB RAM and think that it is more than enough for the next couple of years. Well, we have a bad news for you, 4 GB RAM will hit the mid-range segment within the next 6 months or so. In fact Micromax has already started this shift by launching Canvas 6 Pro – the cheapest 4 GB RAM phone for just Rs.13,999 (US$ 212 approx.) So nothing is future proof in this fast-paced mobile-technology arena. Mobile devices grow older in just 6 months after the launch because their “next generation” successors hit the market after that period. CPUs have already hit 10-cores and RAM has blasted to 6 GB within a short span of just 7 years.

As if 4 GB was not enough, Vivo further intensified the specs-war by announcing Xplay5 Elite – the first ever phone with 6 GB of RAM. As expected this triggered a chain reaction. Other Chinese manufacturers quickly joined the race by revealing their plans to launch their 6 GB RAM monster phone soon. Here are some of the available/soon to be released Android superphones sporting a blazing fast 6 GB Random Access Memory.
