- A new feature called Samsung RAM Plus is landing on the Galaxy A52S.
- The feature gives you up to 4GB of virtual memory, which could give you better performance.
- However, virtual memory is no substitute for physical memory, so temper your expectations.
The joke is that since RAM is a physical aspect of your phone, it’s impossible to add it via software. However, a new feature called Samsung RAM Plus is rolling out now the Galaxy A52S (via SamMobile), and it is likely as close as we’re going to get to being able to download more RAM.
RAM Plus essentially co-opts a portion of your phone’s internal storage and converts it into up to 4GB of “RAM,” meaning virtual memory. In certain situations, this could increase the performance of your phone. However, since the RAM is virtual and not physical, it could have little-to-no effect on performance. In some situations, it could even weaken performance.
It’s not clear if this feature will come to other Samsung devices soon. It might make sense for it to land on lower-end phones, but it would be kind of silly to have it on flagships with 8GB of RAM or more — which is plenty.
