While we expected the ability to increase the virtual RAM or RAM Plus is one of the features of the One UI 4.0 user interface based on Android 12, but Samsung Has now been released for the Galaxy A52 running Android 11.
The RAM Plus feature, which is a virtual increase in system RAM, is a feature that allows Samsung phones to use internal storage. Add system RAM to the amount of memory. This improves the performance of the phone, which ran into multiple applications at the same time.
We've seen this feature before on Xiaomi and Vivo, and we know it doesn't have as much of an effect as adding RAM. But the user can feel the upgrade, and that is enough to consider RAM Plus as one of the most useful features of mid-range phones, because it really helps users to experience multitasking without much trouble.
Samsung's RAM Plus feature was thought to be part of the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 user interface. However, it seems that the Korean company has introduced it on a large number of phones that still use Android 11 as their main operating system, including the Galaxy Z Fold 3, all three models of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy The M52 activated two models of the Galaxy A52 (ie 4G and 5G) as well as the Galaxy A52s. Phones that, of course, have a very high amount of RAM in some of their models, and this feature is mostly used by those users who have purchased versions with 4 or 6 GB of RAM.
Of course, in At first, the 5G model of the Galaxy A52 gained access to the RAM Plus feature, but today, users who have purchased the 4G model were also able to receive an update containing this feature. This update was released for this phone earlier today and its firmware number is A525FXXU4AUI3. Also, the October security package has been added to the Galaxy A52 with this update by fixing about 60 security breaches, and therefore its volume may be slightly more than the usual volume of a security update.
As mentioned above, RAM Plus is one of the functionalities that allows the phone to take up a little space from the internal memory. Consider it as RAM so that the phone can perform well in multitasking tasks that rely heavily on RAM. For example, in the Galaxy A52, the amount of RAM added was about 4 GB.
The RAM Plus feature actually makes the operating system imagine more RAM for the system. When the system's hardware RAM is full, applications that are not running are transferred to virtual RAM or internal storage. This provides space for working with running applications and provides high speed to the user. As you may have guessed, those phones with faster internal storage technology will perform much better in this regard. However, over the years we have seen such a feature in computer hard drives that had very low speeds.
If you are using the Galaxy A52, have you received an update that includes the ability to increase RAM?
