Android Smartphone with 8GB RAM, To Be Announced by LeEco on September 21, 2016

I can still remember the look on my friends' faces last year when I told them over dinner that my Asus ZenFone 2 has a whopping 4GB of RAM.

"4GB of RAM? That's overkill on a handset, bro! That's the same as the amount of RAM that's in my laptop," one of them told me.

I wonder what he'll say when I tell him that a smartphone maker in China is just about ready to announce a new Android smartphone with not 4, not 6, but 8GB of RAM!

LeEco Pro 3

Beijing-based Leshi Internet Information and Technology aka LeEco (formerly known as Letv) will be holding an exclusive media event in its home-country on the 21st of September for the official announcement of their latest flagship smartphone.

LeEco Pro 3, shown in the leaked photo above, will come in two variants.

The smaller one with 5.5-inch Full HD display, 16MP+8MP camera combo, and 4,070 mAh battery pack will have 64GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM.

The larger version, on the other hand, will feature a 5.7-inch 2K display, 13MP Dual-Optics rear camera, 16MP selfie cam in front, 5,000 mAh battery pack, 256GB of internal storage, and - get this - 8GB of RAM -- making it arguably the best Android smartphone in terms of multitasking upon launch.

Both variants will be powered by the top-of-line 64-bit 2.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset that incorporates four Qualcomm Kryo cores and Adreno 530 GPU.

LeEco will disclose the official SRPs of both models during the event. Looking at the photo above, however, it's clear that the 5.5-inch version will don a price tag in between 2,099 to 2,999 CNY (maximum of Php 21,350 with current conversion and before taxes) while the 5.7-inch variant could be priced in the range of 3,099 to 3,999 CNY (Php 28,450 with current conversion and before taxes).

These new devices look totally cool, right? Now, if only LeEco has a dealer here in the Philippines we'll be all good. I really hope they'd consider bringing these handsets here real soon.
