There are many phones with the Galaxy S10 name – four to be exact. But between the different storage configurations of all S10 models, we see a lot of Internet confusion about how much RAM each layer of S10 and S10 + will have. We turned to Samsung to find out what was happening.
The amount of disinformation we see is almost shocking and is mainly due to inaccurate information on the Samsung website. Many people who have previously ordered S10s are in panic for their orders showing 6GB of RAM when they bought their phones based on the 8GB. We even saw some claims about bait and switching against Samsung on reddit.
If you look at the specs section of the various S10 product pages, it's not surprising that many of them scratch their heads. For example, Samsung lists 6GB RAM for the 1

If you thought the website's specifications were bad, it turns out that some actual phones show the wrong RAM sums. A photo posted in the r / galaxys10 subreddit of / u / Curly_umbrella shows the S10 memory section in the settings, saying 6GB RAM, and an AT & T manager who also emailed us that his floor models showed 6GB in the settings. We are impressed with how many up-to-date phones might display erroneous RAM values, but above there is photographic evidence.
Here's what you need to know: no matter which carrier or unlocked model you get. The Samsung website gets almost everything wrong, but a Samsung representative informs us that it will be corrected. However, we are still not sure why some models display 6GB of RAM. The only S10 / S10 + model that does not have 8GB of RAM is the 1TB S10 +, which has 12GB of RAM (again, regardless of the media model / unlocked).
Now that it is clear, order the S10 or S10 + without worrying about getting one with only 6GB of RAM in the mail.
