Default [Q] Will 2GB RAM be enough for Android 4.5 ?

Hello, saw this article about Android 4.5 expected features ( link ) , and the multitasking feature caught my attention. Im about to buy the M8 and was worried whether 2GB ram will be enough for the phone to cope with heavy multi tasking. Other phones like the LG and Sony Z2 are bumping up their RAM.

Any devs have an outlook/opinion on this ?

I doubt really doubt it. the nexus 5 Also has 2 gigs. They are not going to make it obsolete.

Shouldn't put any stock in rumors.

I am sure it will handle it better than the note 2 which only had 2gb of ram. It may slow down performance temporarily but I don't see the phone being unusable especially when not in use. Sure newer phones will always come out but once the "next big thing"comes out the " next next big thing" will be just around the corner. I say get this phone be happy with. And if something comes out which is far superior you can always sell it
