Samsung adds virtual RAM to Galaxy A52s 5G in new update
Samsung's RAM Plus virtual memory is likely to be passed on to other affordable and mid-range phones soon.

Samsung has added 4GB virtual memory or RAM Plus to Galaxy A52s 5G in India via an OTA update. VRAM has been around for a while but is currently being marketed for phones by a number of Android brands including Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, Realme and Xiaomi. Now that Samsung is aboard, we can expect RAM plus to be passed on to other affordable phones from the brand belonging to M and A series. 

For the Galaxy A52s 5G, RAM Plus is part of the A528BXXU1AUH9 update which is a 250MB download and also integrates the August security patch and camera improvements.

What is Samsung’s RAM Plus?

Samsung RAM Plus is virtual memory or VRAM where a portion of the storage is allocated as RAM. The concept is quite popular for PCs and has been a part of Android OS for a while. 

Of course, your phone’s storage is nowhere as fast as your Phone’s RAM, so don’t expect a significant performance bump. However, having additional virtual RAM will mean that your phone will be able to hold more apps in the RAM. This is to say that even if you navigate back to an app, there will be a higher probability that you will be able to continue from right where you left off, even if you weren’t using the said app very recently - and that always invokes a pleasant feeling.

Many phones with aggressive RAM management are also aggressive with virtual RAM management, but hopefully, as the trend catches on we will see better VRAM implementation and usage evolve with time.

The Snapdragon 778-powered Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G was recently launched in India for INR 35,999.
