LeEco Expected To Launch 8GB RAM Smartphone
8GB RAM smartphone might be closer than was originally expected thanks to Chinese tech company, LeEco. Smartphones with 3-4GB of RAM are considered top of the line flagship devices but it seems like their era might be coming to an end soon.
LeEco’s 8GB RAM smartphone, Le 2s, is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor so a high memory isn’t the only thing powering up this beast of a device. There are no other concrete details about the device besides that it is expected to feature a 25-megapixel rear camera, 64GB internal storage and a minimum battery of 3,000mAh.
Based on the leaked images which show a 2.5D curved glass panel, the Le 2s might feature a QHD screen with at least 5.5-inch size.
While 3-4GB of RAM is the norm for most companies like Samsung, Sony and even Google devices, there have been smartphones with up to 6GB memory in the past such as the popular OnePlus3 and even LeEco’s Le Max2. However, a 8GB RAM smartphone will still be the world’s first such device.
Le 2s’ successor Le 2 was launched back in June featuring a Snapdragon 625 processor and since Le 2s is designed to be a worthy successor to it, makes sense for it to feature a better Snapdragon 821 chipset.
Of course, RAM isn’t everything and despite having a good processor, an android based phone can fail even with 8GB RAM if the software isn’t properly optimized. This is exactly why Apple’s iPhone devices can outperform some of the greatest android smartphones even though they have a decreased RAM capacity and a weaker processor.
According to some rumors, LeEco is planning to launch Le 2s in the first week of September, closer to the expected announcement of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7. However as long as there is no official word on the phone’s development, this should all be considered a rumor.
