8 GB RAM handsets might show up sooner than expected

Less than a year after launching the first Snapdragon 820-powered handset, LeTV is expected to become the first company to unveil a handset with 8 GB RAM.

LeTV might not be well-known in the Western Hemisphere yet, but this could change before 2016 ends. Earlier this year, this Chinese company unveiled the first handset to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, namely LeTV LeMax Pro. Now, it looks like the time has already come for the first smartphone with 8 GB of memory.

While nothing is official yet, GizChina's inside sources report that LeTV is already working on its next-gen flagship. Next to the impressive (and somewhat useless, at least for now) amount of memory, this handset is also expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC. On top of these, a fingerprint reader and a 25 MP main camera are also expected to be in the list of features.

This upcoming flagship is expected to hit the market as LeTV LeMax 2 and, while its predecessors were only available in white or gold, its color options will include red, blue, and silver. However, all the above should be taken with a grain of salt for now. We will probably hear more about the LeMax 2 soon, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
