Most of us thought that the OnePlus 3 was pretty daft running 6GB, but according to Phone Radar the LeEco LeMax 2 Pro’s 8GB is about the same as a PC.
The question is what is a smartphone going to do with 8GB of RAM? It might offer a small performance boost for the Snapdragon 821 it is supposed to be packing, but not that much to be worthwhile. The Snapdragon 821 will be a quad-core chip clocked at up to 2.3GHz.
One suggestion is that the phone will need all that Ram to run the LeEco LeMax 2 Pro’s 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 screen. There will also be 128GB of built-in storage along with a microSD card slot, plus a 25MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing one and this thing is likely to shrouded in metal.
We suppose that 8GB is a bit of a gimmick but not one we can think of any use for it.
