LeTV in pure speculation is said to be working on a new flagship phone with the latest Snapdragon 821 chipset and a huge 8GB RAM.
Starting last season when Asus launched the Zenfone 2 with 4GB RAM, now we have seen RAM increase across all Chinese smartphones.  This year Vivo, ZUK and OnePlus all have 6GB RAM phones.

LeTV is working on the LeMax 2 that will have a few new key features. Renders of the phone show that the device will be available in an option of either red, blue or silver. Previous LeTV/LeEco phones were only made in white or gold.

The speculated hardware of new LeMax 2 could be one of the first smartphones to launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, and 8GB RAM!

The phone is also speculated to have a 25 mega-pixel camera on the rear just above a touch fingerprint scanner.

The pure speculation even gives us a possible price for the phone too, 3000 Yuan or $455.39 US. 

8GB RAM phone? will that make a difference? Performance?  How about 6GB RAM? Is it functioning well now?

give your thoughts.

    Saw that rumor on Gizchina or Gizmochina... 8gb of ram is just too much in my opinion, even 6gb is too much... but for those spec people, I guess they would love the 8gb of ram...

    Haha, yeah.. I posted that earlier in the Rumor Mill sub-forum. Gimme all the RAM!

    Yeah should be releasing soon from what I have been reading.  Looking like early fall in late September early October.

    Interesting..... 8gb of ram, but I wonder if it will take full advantage of all the memory or will it have poor memory management.

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,377 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I think that's what everyone is wondering with anything more than 4GB!

    Most likely poor memory management. The more RAM a company can throw into a phone, the poorer the software optimization might be since developers can be lazy and worry less about about memory usage... I sort of wish Android have a cap on the amount of RAM a phone can have.

  • Seems like companies like to throw useless things into a phone to bait people into buying them. I can see people buying it just because it has a lot of ram and not even realizing it's not even needed.
