Upcoming Smartphones With 8GB RAM Expected To Launch in 2016

Prior this year in March, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has launched the X-Play Elite phone. This is the world’s very first smartphone to feature 6 GB of RAM. And not just Vivo but now other smartphone brands also offers 6 GB RAM in various devices. But there are also rumors suggesting that some of the smartphone makers will roll out their devices with massive 8 GB RAM support. Even 6 GB RAM in a smartphone device is a gimmicky feature, and if smartphones with 8 GB RAMs will roll out then it may redefine the performance and capability of a mobile device. Here are few smartphones rumored to be launched with 8 GB RAM in the coming months.

LeEco Le Max 2 Pro


Smartphone brand LeEco, which is generally known as LeTv has set a new trend by presenting Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor in their newly launched device Le Max Pro following other competitors like Xiaomi, Samsung, HTC, LG and others. And now the company is said to raise the competition again with the upcoming device LeEco Le Max 2 Pro.

Referring to reports, this smartphone maker will be announcing their new product Le Max 2 Pro on the 29th of June. And has been reporting that the company will be rolling out a new device code-named LEX720 and it has been leaked on AnTuTu benchmark. This device is predicted to be unveiled with the Le Max 2 Pro.

In the meantime, has already reported that the Chinese smartphone maker LeEco is going to launch a new device which is believed to be the Le Max 2 Pro at the coming Mobile World Congress in Shanghai on July 29. This upcoming device is supposed to be launched with massive 8 GB RAM and it will be powered by a Snapdragon 823 processor with an integration of 25-megapixel camera. This device is rumored to roll out with 5.7 inches IPS LCD display and 128 GB of internal storage. And probably this handset will be available in two colors blue and red.

Microsoft Surface Phone


Microsoft Lumia series has not generated the results what anticipated by the company. It has been a year since there are rumors of the new Surface Phone but there is no official information reviled about the smart device. The design of this phone is said to be a solid Aluminum build.

We have already experienced Surface Tablet range which features very solid and strong build which has surely worked very well for Microsoft. And as the same team is leading the Surface Phone project we can expect the same build quality in the Surface Phone as well.

Furthermore, this device is very much expected to roll out with a kick stand just like the one featured in the Surface Tablet series. As aforesaid, the Surface Phone may be announced in three different variants, which we believe will diverge in terms of display size. We can surely expect a general size of 5.5 inches screen for the consumer edition and the other variants may go up to 6 inches in screen size.

Rendering to reports, Microsoft is working with Intel for this Surface Phone project. As here Intel is concerned in terms of processing power we can definitely expect some high-end performance. This power pack Intel CPU is expected to be coupled with 8 GB RAM as well. And users also should expect a long lasting battery life with power efficient processor.

Lumia’s inheritance might act as a significant point for Microsoft to develop a much more refined camera structure. They are predicted to be using the assets of Lumia in this area. A prominent front-facing camera is going to be an understandable accumulation.

The Surface Phone is absolutely set to be a carrier for Microsoft to aid them to impulse the massive investment they have made in the Windows 10 operating system. Without any hesitation, the Surface Phone will roll out with Windows 10 out of the box.


OPPO Find 9


Oppo has availed quite a few smart devices in the past years, but none can honestly be entitled top of the line in terms of specifications and performance. The last device Oppo has launched was a flagship smartphone named Find 7, which was rolled out in May 2014. And there are rumors flooding the market since Jan 2015 that the Chinese smartphone maker is developing another device possibly named Find 9.

2015 has ended without any official news about the mythical device Find 9. Therefore, it is believed that the said device Find 9 may be officially reviled in the year 2016.

A new leak has been flooding the online market about the Find 9 which reviles the specifications of the said device. As the leak suggests the upcoming device will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor integration coupled with 8 GB RAM. This device is said to be featuring a 5.5 inches QHD display for optimum display quality. The leak also suggests that the phone will be having 128 GB internal storage and the details about the memory expansion is yet to be found out.

This device is also said to be featuring 21-megapixel dual camera setup along with 16-megapixel selfie shooter. The Oppo Find 9 flagship is rumored to be running Android 5.1 Lollipop version. It also will feature VOOC fast charging while the battery capacity is said to be 4100 mAh which seems quite enough for this set of specifications.

It’s worth stating that apart from the Oppo Find 9, many other smartphone devices from manufacturers like Xiaomi, LeEco, HTC, Asus, and Nubia are also believed to be equipped with the yet to be announced SD821 and SD823 chipset.

The upcoming Oppo Find 9 flagship is supposedly priced about $615. Some sources also suggests that it may also feature a 4K display with 6 GB RAM and SmartSensor image stabilization will also be functioned in the camera. As there are mixed news from different sources it is hard to predict the technical specifications of this mythical device.

Oppo has not updated their Find series in recent times but, we have seen this manufacturer archiving forth spot in world’s largest smartphone maker list with the success of their recent devices Oppo R9 and R9 Plus. As the leak suggests that this mythical device may be announced by the end of this month, it is probably the Mobile World Congress event which is going to be held in Shanghai on 29th of June.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7


There have been many rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 including the one which says it is going to feature a dual edge display which is not made by Samsung. Samsung has skipped number 6 in the naming process may be it is to synchronize it with the S series and it is confirmed that the device is going to be named Note 7.

As far as the specifications are concerned, this device will be rolling out with a 5.7 QHD dual edged Super AMOLED display for superior display performance. Evaluating from rumors we can say that this device will be equipped with a faster and batter Exynos 8 SoC which will be coupled with 8 GB of RAM.

The upcoming smart phablet is said to be featuring a 12-megapixel camera with features like dual pixel phase detection auto-focus. This device will be having an integration of a non-removable 4000 mAh battery power. The Galaxy Note 7 is said to be bringing back the microSD support for memory expansion along with 64 GB internal storage space and also expected to feature waterproof casing. Some other sources also believe that this phone will feature iris scanner.

The Galaxy Note 7 is going to be launched on 2nd of August, and it will be available in Netherlands around the second week of the same month.  Seemingly other countries will also have a similarly scheduled release date.

This upcoming smart device is reportedly heaving the price around $900. But, this should not be taken as the final price as this presumed price is exclusive of VAT and other taxes.
