Needs more RAM! Rumors say LeEco is prepping an 8 GB RAM monster for launch in 2016
LeEco, formerly known as LeTV, is a huge tech company in China, which sells products in a lot of consumer electronics fields. Smartphones is, of course, one of them. You may remember LeTV for it's proud “USA, we are coming!” announcement, or the fact that it likes to call Apple the Nazi of technologies. Or, if you follow us closely, you may remember that LeEco launched the first batch of commercially-available smartphones in 2016 to not have a 3,5 mm audio jack — those were its second generation Le 2, Le 2 Pro, and Le Max 2 handsets. Out of the trio, the Max 2 has the most powerful hardware, with the Snapdragon 820 humming under its hood and a generous slab of 6 GB of RAM.

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?
