The first smartphone with 8 GB RAM may be just around the corner and could even be revealed this Thursday at a press event in Beijing, China.

Rumor has it that Chinese technology company LeEco wants to be the first to market with a smartphone equipped with 8 GB RAM. Consumer smartphones with even 6 GB of RAM have yet to be made widely available aside from the recently released OnePlus 3, so LeEco would essentially be doubling the RAM capacity of even the most high-end smartphone.

Aside from the ludicrous RAM upgrade, the alleged Max 2 Pro is also expected to carry a Snapdragon 823 or even 821 SoC compared to the current Snapdragon 820 in the Max 2 and other flagships like the LG G5 or HTC 10. The newer Snapdragon SoCs may be clocked faster from 2.15 GHz to 2.5 GHz with support for cameras of up to 25 MP.

It is still unclear if the event on June 29th will see the reveal of the Max 2 Pro or a different model entirely to compete against the inevitable Galaxy Note 7. A Mobile World Congress offshoot is set to take place before the end of this month in Shanghai, so a number of announcements are expected to be made from major Chinese smartphone manufacturers. Thus, even if the Max 2 Pro doesn't come to fruition, the company will very likely announce more editions of its existing Le 2 family.

LeEco plans to expand overseas into the U.S. market by this Fall with unlocked smartphones and streaming services.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
