Asus and Xiaomi made headlines with their respective 4GB RAM phones in 2015. Now that makers like OnePlus 2 and some other OEMs have made 4GB RAM mainstream, how much does it take to get a phone with that much RAM?
Not too much, apparently. Well, at least according to Lenovo, whose K80M smartphone as per our knowledge is the cheapest 4GB RAM phone on the market right now.
Gizchina News of the week
Let’s take a look at the specifications sheet of the Lenovo K80M. It has a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, an Intel Moorefield Z3560 quad-core 1.8GHz processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB on-board storage, and a camera set in a 13 mega-pixel rear and a 5 mega-pixel front. It isn’t short on battery capacity either, with a 4000mAh cell in there.
There’s a trade off you’ll have to make, however. The K80M has an older Android version — Android 4.4 KitKat — running on it.
Despite that, sub-$200 for a 4GB RAM phone doesn’t look like a deal all that bad, does it? Interested parties can get one via Geekbuying who’ve listed it for $184.
