Many are only just getting used to smartphones featuring 4GB or 6GB of RAM. But seems like they are not adequate for LeEco. Rumor has it that the company is working on a flagship smartphone that will be powered a combination of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset and 8GB of RAM. Yes, you read that right — 8GB of RAM!

These specifications will come in an upgraded version of LeEco’s Le Max2 smartphone, GizChina reports. The current-gen Le Max2 is no weakling by any stretch of imagination. It comes with features like QHD display, Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB and 6GB RAM options, 21-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel selfie camera, 3,100mAh battery, and fingerprint scanner.

Instead of being thrilled though, it raises the question — how much is enough? Smartphones with 4GB of RAM are powerful enough to handle multi-tasking and graphic-intensive games with relative ease. But now there’s a race between companies to offer devices with 6GB of RAM. But for some reason LeEco feels that isn’t enough either and it wants to offer as much RAM as a computer in a smartphone.
It’s too soon to say just how authentic this piece of information is. But for theoretical reasons let’s assume LeEco is actually working on a smartphone with 8GB of RAM. What are your thoughts on it? Do you think it is essential or just a marketing gimmick? Let us know in our comments section below.
