Recently, some Chinese manufacturers, such as OPPO, Vivo, Xiaomi and Realme, have started to implement a feature that allows users to increase the amount of RAM memory in their cell phones with the Virtual Memory function — or Dynamic RAM.
For those unfamiliar, the feature allows the user to reserve part of the internal storage to be used as an “extension” to the RAM memory. Thus, smartphones that natively have 6 GB of RAM can take another 6 GB, for example, and reach 12 GB in total. Likewise, a device that already has 12 GB of RAM can reach 18 GB with this function.
While this isn’t a new technology — some custom ROMs have had this advantage for years — it’s interesting to see companies move to implement this natively. Realme, for example, should make the feature available for its next releases, while older models will also be able to benefit from an update.
