Needs more RAM! Rumors say LeEco is prepping an 8 GB RAM monster for launch in 2016

And while 6 GB of RAM looks like it's plenty for a smartphone, maybe even a bit overkill, a new rumor says that LeEco is already setting up a higher bar for its competitors. Reportedly, a new version of the Le Max 2 will come with the yet unreleased Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 under the hood and a whopping 8 GB of RAM! If we were to assume, we'd guess this new phone would be called Le Max 2 Pro – it's the only name from last year's lineup of Le devices that didn't get revived this year. Though, the leak doesn't go as far as to say when we should expect this super-charged handset.
Well, we are officially in the era where flagship smartphones have more RAM than most laptops and desktop PCs out there in the world. Does 8 GB sound like something you need on your handset, or do you think it's absolutely over the top?

If 6GBs doesn't work, what makes them think that 8 will? LOLhttp://phandroid.com/2016/06/1

Pathetic. They have nothing to show, their software is utter crap so these Chinese and one certain Korean company just put big spec sheet to make their insecure fangirls/boys happy. I still remember the video when iPhone with 1 GB ram beat the $hit out of Note 5 with 4GB ram. LOL.

Actually that was just the US. And only 1000 or so people were surveyed.....so.....yeah. Plus you know the iPhone 6 has more users, I.e. satisfaction reports are usually swayed by metrics. Lastly, Apple's total product satisfaction rate is over 95% while Samsung doesn't even report such a stat.

that is just bullsh#t..... they have definitely enabled to kill app after leaving in the developer option. Just search for oneplus 3 ram management c4etech on youtube... it's able to hold 8 games in the memory....... I'm not a fanboy... it's just i can't stand fake news.

Android 6.0.x has abysmal memory management and doesn't really know how to use the memory for running multiple apps simultaneously. The hacked ROMs are the only solution for this as they tweak this ability to keep apps open.

Should Microsoft launch a surface phone with 8gbram,we might likely see surface pro scenario.whereby, Android tablets were ditched in favor of a more powerful one..... This will pose a threat to Android high end phones that prefer specs instead of performance and fucnctions

Question is will Android with the double/triple amount of CPU cores and RAM finally keep up with the "humble" speced iPhone?

There's nothing "humble" about the A9 It has over 2 billion transistor SoC Huge CPU cores with an issue decode that's 2-3x as wide More cache, including a L3 cache other SoCs lack Its a bigger die than the 7420 (cant find specs for the other recent Android SoCs)

Lol. In another news OP3 got its A** kicked by S7. So much for more ram. More ram is useless if you keep killing apps. And if android stops kill apps in background, battery life will be crap. Long story short. More ram is useless.

OP3 will run better once ubuntu touch is ported sadly Google is getting left behind in OS optimization for high end specs. They need to a: either control hardware or b: open the nexus project to more then one partner to allow for a wider development platform.
