Report: LeTV Max 2 to be stuffed with 6GB of RAM, Snapdragon 820 SoC

Report: LeTV Max 2 to be stuffed with 6GB of RAM, Snapdragon 820 SoC
LeTV has been working on a sequel to its highly spec'd LeTV Max. Earlier this month, the manufacturer released a teaser showing that the Snapdragon 820 chipset will be employed on the phone. At the same time, reports indicated that the handset would sport a smaller 5.7-inch screen, down from the 6.33-inches used on the OG model. The display will offer a resolution of 1440 x 2560, same as on the Max.

Today, a rumor out of China states that the LeTV Max 2 will employ 6GB of RAM. We recently passed along the news that Samsung has mass produced 12Gb LPDDR4 RAM chips. Four of them will hold 6GB of information (12Gb=1.5GB). We could see the Samsung Galaxy S7 also feature 6GB of RAM.

The LeTV Max 2 is also expected to carry a 23MP rear camera using a Sony IMX300 sensor, with an aperture of f/2.0. The rear snapper will offer fast .1 second fast focusing. The body will be made of glass in both the front and back, and we are told that the bezels will be even thinner on the sequel. You might recall that in April, LeTV COO Liang Jun posted a comparison photo on Weibo, showing that the 1.6mm bezels on the Max were smaller than the 3.1mm bezels on the Xiaomi Mi Note. He also offered $1 million to anyone finding a narrower bezel on a QHD screen. As far as we know, LeTV never cut that one million dollar check.

If LeTV does use the Snapdragon 820 on the Max 2, as it so obviously intends to, we should see the phone launched late in the first quarter of 2016.

The Beast From The East! LeTV FTW! However the screen should've stayed the same (personal preference)

I doubt anyone on Earth uses Android in a way to need anywhere near 6gb so this is just overkill to keep the spec w#ores happy.

I don't think phones need 6GB of RAM. What Samsung needs to do is optimize Android specifically for THEIR phones. Especially for the Note and S models which are the flagships and offer the most features vs an Galaxy. 6GB of RAM? I I just don't see any Android apps or even games using that. The downside to giving a VM more RAM is it will not manage it properly and just drain it and suck up 70% for no reason. Like on the Galaxy, the OS is sucking up 60% of the installed RAM with just the stock firmware. As you install apps, the VM sucks up even more RAM.

They should put imx377 sensor with OIS in Max2 and should keep it 6.3inch

Last year, octacores and 3gb ram are overkill. 2015 came and nobody's buying quad core even if they're mid range. Wait for 2016 and 4/6gb ram will just become standard for high-end phones.

And thanks to the stranglehold the carriers still have on DOPES in the USA either under contract or thinking it's cheaper to be under contract, and, continuing to think that a carrier is the only place you can buy a phone, they probably won't include the LTE frequencies in the USA. That means the apple drones, samsung sickies will continue to dominate the USA market. People need to get their heads out of their butts and realize there are a bunch of affordable phones out their besides those two.

What the point of having that much RAM and still lagging behind apple in fluidity, instead they should optimize the software.... No wonder its hard to make money in android

The 6.33" display was THE signature feature of the Max, they are fools for switching to a middle-of-the-road 5.7" display. Find some other way to apologize to the anti-size-ists. Send them flowers or something, don't sacrifice your follow on product!
