    Benchmark hints at minimum 12GB of RAM on all Galaxy S20 models

    Recent leaks have revealed many exciting aspects about Samsung's upcoming flagship. One particularly interesting detail was that Samsung may be putting 12GB of RAM as standard on all three Galaxy S20 models and going all the way up to 16GB of RAM for the Galaxy S20 Ultra. While there's no evidence of the latter being true, a benchmark listing for the Galaxy S20 suggests that 12GB of RAM may indeed be the minimum on offer no matter which Galaxy S20 model one might purchase.

    The North American 5G variant of the Galaxy S20, the smallest of the three Galaxy S20 models, was recently benchmarked on Geekbench with 12GB of RAM (and the Snapdragon 865 SoC and Android 10). Considering it's always the base models that get benchmarked before a flagship phone is released, it's a pretty solid hint that 12 gigs of RAM will be standard across the lineup. However, Samsung could still put 8GB of RAM in the LTE variants, which are expected to be available in some markets despite 5G connectivity being an integral part of the new Exynos and Snapdragon chips.

    Would you be willing to pay for a flagship in 2020 that has less than 12GB of RAM, or do you think Samsung should continue to offer variants of its flagships with 8GB of RAM to keep prices low? Let us know in the comments!
