ZTE Grand S II, first smartphone with 4GB RAM?

Right after showing us its smartphone with 128GB of internal storage, ZTE could be releasing a new device with 4GB of RAM. The Grand S II was first seen last January at CES with only half the memory but Chinese regulator Tenaa hints otherwise.

ZTE Grand S II key specs:

5.5-inch capacitive display @ 1920 x 1080, 401ppi
2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor
Adreno 330 GPU
4GB RAM (from 2GB)
16GB internal storage
13MP rear, 2MP front cameras
3000mAh battery
Android 4.3

Tenaa is like the Chinese counterpart of America’s FCC. Its regulatory filing suggests that instead of the original 2GB RAM that was initially seen earlier this year, the company will go for the maximum possible RAM on a 32-bit ARM chip and install 4GB RAM on the devices.

This upgrade in RAM could be one of two things: It could be a last minute change to up its ante or there could be 2GB and 4GB RAM variants just like the Nubia X6 that comes in 32, 64, and 128GB of internal memory.

We’re still waiting for ZTE to release a confirmation regarding this because if they do, they’ll officially be the first smartphone with 4GB worth of RAM. Availability is still undisclosed but reports say it could be on the second quarter of the year.

    What use is a phone with killer specs if it won’t get any updates?

    para saan ang 4gb ram?

    iinstall-an ba yang phone na yan ng 3d rendering at video editing softwares?

    di ba pwede mag-innovate naman, wag puro dagdag ram, cores at screen relolution na lang?

    mga android phonemakers talaga oh! LOL!

    They should have implemented this on a tablet first. 4GB ram is more acceptable for tablets because people are more likely to multitask on larger screens. There are only quite a few productive tasks to do on these smaller devices to even maximize your RAM.
