LeEco Le Max 2 Pro could come with Snapdragon 823 SoC and 8 GB RAM
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.
