World’s first 8GB RAM phone – The LeEco Pro 3 leaked

World’s first 8GB RAM phone – The LeEco Pro 3 leaked

leeco 8GB RAM

So we know that LeEco are working on a new flagship, but we weren’t expecting the device to also pack the most amount of RAM that we have ever seen in a smartphone!!

Can you believe that at the start of the year we were “making do” with phone with “just” 4GB RAM? It seems like it was only yesterday that Asus shocked the world with the first 4GB RAM phone on the market, and now today we’re looking at a device with potentially double that!

LeEco are no strangers of making phones with huge amounts of RAM, however we weren’t expecting them to raise the bar!

In a recently leaked image, specifications for 2 versions of the LeEco Pro 3 have been disclosed. The ‘Standard” version has a lowly 6GB RAM, but the flagship version is listed with a huge 8GB RAM!!

The leak reveals more than just incredible amounts of RAM though, and goes in to great detail for both versions of the unreleased Pro 3.

If we look back to the 6GB RAM version of the device we see that LeEco have opted for 64GB internal memory, a Snapdragon 821 chipset, 16 mega-pixel rear camera, 8 mega-pixel front, 4070mAh battery,and 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 2.5D display.

What we are really interested in though is that 8GB RAM model, that actually has a large 5.7-inch 2K display and larger 5000mAh battery. In fact almost everything is bigger on the second phone such as a front facing 13 mega-pixel camera, and 256GB internal memory.

Not all the details are complete though as the pricing for each phone has been cleverly disguised.

8GB RAM!? Are you ready for a new standard of flagship Chinese phone?

    They really got the battery right this time. With a well optimized OS, this phone is a winner.

    • Ben

      And hopefully a better camera than the ones before. 😉

  • Stiffmah

    And Sony his flagship still uses 3GB ram

    • Sony are not the kind to follow with these trends. They’ve become a niche in the Android market anyways. But I think that their phone would manage the RAM better than this brand of phone would.

  • Conrad Aquilina

    Nice 🙂

  • MattD

    I’m excited about batteries, more than the ram… Will the dark reign of “3000mah battery, 3.5 hours sot” flagships ever come to an end?

    • Rob

      Literally can’t believe 2 years later 3.5-5 is considered average-good, when in 2014 the OPO could get nearly 8 in kitkat with 3000mah

      • MattD

        Producers relied too much on antutu as a selling point: too much power, while batteries stayed the same… No wonder things went downhill from that point onwards!

  • Yeti hand

    so what if there is 40 gb of ram??? Bring a battery that can give us 9h sot with that useless 2k display and I’m interested.
    I’m ready to bet 5000mah isn’t enough

    • AtereJr

      Go get a Nubia z11 max and u’ll never complain about battery.

  • a

    Call me when there is a 32GB ram phone

  • newphoenix

    What can you today do with 8GB you can’t with 2GB RAM?

    • careeste

      more marketing

    • Lazar Prodanovic

      Make a whole day simulation sessions in Chrome including lots of tabs opened at the same time, make one of them Facebook & you are (after longer usage) already down to 4 GB of the free RAM.. But seriously they should pool the brake at 8GB.
      Funy thing is if you could install full Ubuntu Linux natively on the phone you would be able to compile complete 6.xx+ ROM(‘s) with this one as requirement is 8GB of RAM.

  • MaxPower

    8 GB of RAM on a pink phone…
    Marketing people, these strangers!

    • Nico

      Hahaha definitely true. Man 8GB RAM on a phone, the market is going crazy!!! On my Asus laptop I do have 8GB RAM but most of the computers out there only have 4GB RAM. I guess that sooner or later we will have phones with 64GB RAM LOL. Even Xiaomi will release a 6GB RAM version for the MI5S to justify their high prices.

  • Jhonny

    i bet the price it will be up to 600$ for that 8GB ram

  • goodwill

    I should have waited a little.. I just got the Le Max 2.

    • Their supply chain isn’t the best, mate. You can expect this one to release next week… but it’ll take another 3 weeks to reach resellers.

      • goodwill

        I wouldn’t mind waiting for a month tho.

        • A month time is just for the phones to reach resellers like Banggood, Geekbuying, Gearbest. They go unsold for a couple more weeks even after pre-sale.
          And even then it would take at least 2 weeks for delivery, so I’d say 2 months minimum.

    • Muhammad Yasir

      lol … you should be happy :p

      Le Max 2 is a FANTASTIC phone … or so i have heard

    • Rayan Vahia

      Don’t worry pal I just got myself a LeTV S1 x600 32gb version. It will serve me for a good 2-3 years easily. I upgraded from a ZOPO C2 and it’s an amazing phone.

  • tommi

    Same horrible LTPS IPS screen from Le Max 2? Move already to AMOLED!

    2K anyway useless battery waste, 1080p would given better scores!

    • quodvadis

      lol another clueless. AMOLED pentile is far far worse than any LTPS at the same resolution.

      • goodwill

        On paper, yes. but in real life, Amoled looks better. I’ve compared it side by side with my Le Max 2 and a friend’s OP3 on mid and max brightness. Amoled screens are more vibrant and brighter in real life. More saturated too.

        • quodvadis

          if you like oversaturation sure.

          • goodwill

            It’s not over saturated. It’s just more saturated (more warm compared to the dull blueish display)

            • quodvadis

              lol sure.

            • David Košič

              There is a reason the entire industry is moving to amoled technology. Tv’s and monitors are going OLED as well.

  • Keen User

    At least Make it DualOS with 8GB ram or WInPhone with Android Virtual System..with 256GB and8GB,It shouldnt be that difficult when chinese tablets are already there….then the 8GB means Sth.
    also Why again not use SuperAmloed Screen?For now they are the best Display.

    • AtereJr

      Great minds think alike. Indeed I had a similar wish but it seems its likely not gonna happen. It just might be the only factor that stops me from getting one (along with an existent black border).

  • Guaire

    Looks like 8GB model has 13MP dual camera at the back and a 16MP selfie camera.

    I’m curious about what kind of dual camera setup it carries and size of that 13MP sensors.

    IMO 6GB model will be 2099 yuan and other one will be 3099 yuan.

  • Nolan

    I hope the AnTuTu can cross 170,000 at least. It will be amazing!

    • David Košič

      Not with a 2k screen

    • AtereJr

      Not for the SD821 processor it’ll be running with but surely next year it’ll be an easy feat for the SD830 to achieve.

  • quodvadis

    pissing contest.

  • Akimitsui

    More enticed by the battery sizes than the amount of ram to be honest.

  • Bleh

    8G model could be with 128GB storage + same 5.5-inch 1080p screen from 6G model, both are 2.5D anyway 😛

    • Brookyln701

      2K is also absolutely useless on an 5.5 Display. Just draws more power and gives pathetic users the feeling of seeing more. Kind of like hallucinations…

      • AtereJr

        U absolutely get it.

    • AtereJr

      Nah, its coming with 256GB storage according to most recent leaks.

  • Angry Mobile Nerd

    8GB!? Sweet! My Shooty Skies will never close again!

  • Karly Johnston

    My lowly Z2 Pro only has 6GB RAM. lol At least it has 128 and not a lowly 64GB.

    • AtereJr

      The Le Pro 3 coming with 8GB of RAM is being paired with 256GB and not 64 or even 128.
      So u are definitely correct when u refer to your Z2 pro as lowly.

      • Karly Johnston

        The 6GB Pro 3 only has 64GB internal.

  • Muhammad Yasir

    hory shet …

  • ramon

    8GB? The same as I have in PC and never fully used, until I have run heavy PC game? Who will ever use that huge memory on smartphone? Only markets for better selling I guess…

  • Cynaegeirus

    And at the same time they provide ZERO support for x800 US model that still has a L-
    Rom (only after the custom one from the resellers had trojans in and everybody was complaining in the USA site so the had to provide one…) and they deny by all means to give us the source code…

    Great phones but the worst company policy ever

  • Rayan Vahia

    Man, 8gb of ram is completely useless. They should rather invest in being more price competitive using a bigger battery, work more on rom optimization and stick to 4gb ram. Also better cameras and sensors

  • NextHype

    PC users are used to hardware progression linked to software evolution. On Android platforms, we only see software stagnation since 5 years and exploding hardware configuration. How could we think this doesn’t come from marketing departments ?

    But yeah, it’s really cool to be able to keep Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Candy Crush, Angry Bird and a browser open on Group On without having to loose 5s to reload when switching from an app to another. I’m thrilled.

  • balcobomber25

    My phone barely averages 2GB of RAM used a day.

    • AtereJr

      U must be having 4GB of RAM or more on your phone.

  • Sned

    Daydream support or I’m not interested.

  • Tommi

    There is no point with 2K screen… really, I hope they change it before official release.

  • AHappyKoalaBear

    I’m only going to buy a leeco when they release a black phone, I just hate white, and the fact that custom roms are almost not possible is an instant no buy for me
