It’s the time for this year’s flagships, we have seen some of them announced, but more are yet to come. As a tradition, each new flagship from every company seems to be better in terms of everything, specifications being the top priority. Most of the flagships are confirmed to have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC, the next big thing being the RAM of the phone, we are also seeing a bump in that too. In 2015, were looking forward to phones with 4GB RAM, which had been previously heard on laptops and PCs only.
Here, I’ll be talking about the top 5 android phones (released and yet to be released) that will be coming with 4GB of RAM! So, here we start :
Asus Zenfone 2
Asus Zenfone 2 was the first one to be announced with a 4GB RAM. It was the star of the show at this year’s CES, partially because it was the first phone to be announced with a 4GB RAM.
Zenfone 2 is the first phone from Asus that is aimed at a more premium market, even though the price seems too good for being premium. The company has gone with Intel’s processors, just like its previous phones, which went well making their phones more powerful at a budget price (this is because Intel is selling their processors at a subsidized rate to manufacturers, to get a foot hold on the market saturated with Qualcomm processors). This phone comes in two different SoC models, Intel Atom Z3580 and Intel Atom Z3580, the latter being offered with 4 GB RAM and the former with 2 GB RAM.
The phone is having a front camera of 13 MP and the back camera is a 5 MP one, the phone runs on Android 5.0, with ZenUI on top. The price for the 4 GB version is not yet revealed but the price for the 2 GB version is $199.
Xiaomi Mi Note Pro
The next show stopper, the Mi Note Pro. It has been on news like the Zenfone 2. It is the latest flagship from the Smartphone disruptor, Xiaomi. There’s much more than just the 4GB RAM to be desired from the phone. It features a great design, with the industry first 3D glass design (as they call it), which is basically a curved back panel that is not found in any other flagships.
The specifications of the phone include a 64 bit octa core Snapdragon 810, which is paired with Adreno 430 GPU. This phone is the first device from the Chinese manufacturer to come with a 2K display. The display is a 5.7 inch 2560 x 1440 pixels one, which gives the phone a great pixel per inch of 515 ppi.Coming to camera department, the phone comes with a primary 13 MP camera with OIS, and a 4 MP secondary camera. The phone will be coming with MIUI v6 based on Android 4.4, and the selling price for the phone is set to be $530.
Samsung Galaxy S6
UPDATE : Samsung released Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, with both featuring 3 GB RAM, instead of 4 GB RAM. Sammy’s out from the specs race and now they’re concentrating on user experience!
Samsung won’t break it’s tradition being launching their flagships with the best available configurations. Galaxy S6 is on the top list to come with a 4GB RAM. The Galaxy S6 is considered a key product that could determine the medium-term future of the South Korean company, as they have been experiencing failure in making any improvements in their sales and the lukewarm response that their last year’s flagship Galaxy S5. Also just today, it was revealed that Micromax have overtaken them as the number one smartphone manufacturer for Q4 in India. So they have a lot to worry about their upcoming flagship.
Coming to the specifications, the South Korean manufacturer will not be using the Snapdragon 810, instead they will be going with their own Exynos series of SoCs, which one of them will be powering the S6 is yet to be seen. (Qualcomm confessed that a big unnamed manufacturer left it’s bandwagon which points to only one name, Samsung).
So much have been leaked about this phone, but we don’t have a clear picture what to expect. But the image you saw just above is the invitation image by Samsung for the supposed launch of Galaxy S6 (or might be the edge version of the phone, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge). Take a look at these most recent leaked images by nowherelese.fr (I have to say, these look like iPhone 6).
Camera of the phone will be a 20 MP one, which is produced by Samsung. The display resolution of the phone will be QHD, size of it being 5.5 inch one making it the biggest phone ever in the Galaxy S family. Coming to the price, it will surely be higher than current flagships.
Update : LG has also disappointed us with launching LG G4 with 3 GB RAM.
How can we leave behind LG, when talking about flagships. Their previous flagships G2 and G3 done so well in the market with their unique design. It is also expected to come with 4GB RAM, and the presence of Snapdragon 810 has been partially confirmed as the Qualcomm recently mentioned about their partners for 2014.
LG G4 is even tipped to feature an even higher resolution of 3K 5.5 inch (1620 x 2880 pixels),making it the highest resolution and pixel rich smartphone in the market, if the reports are to be believed. We’re looking at an epic 600 pixels per inch, in case you’re wondering. The processor in this phone is the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 as most of the other flagships. And it will be carrying their iconic back side buttons.
The phone will be running Android 5.0 (5.02, I believe) running on top of LG’s own custom UI. I can’t comment on the pricing of the phone now, but it will be ultra premium.
Oppo Find 9
This is the successor to the Oppo’s Find 7 flagship. (I don’t know why they’re skipping Find 8, weird). It’ll be as premium as their previous flagship was, and will be touting the best available specifications, you should remember the fact that Find 7 was one of the first phone to come with 2K display. It have been leaked by GizChina, showing off the entire device, take a look :
We don’t have much information about this phone, but we do know that it will be featuring the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, and will be featuring the same 2K display. No words on pricing and other details.
That’s it, this was the most awaited smartphones that will be launching with awesome 4 GB of RAM. I hope you liked this list, please share this with your geeky friends! I would like to hear your opinion on this too, please comment and let me know what you think!
