Xiaomi working on a Memory extension feature for MIUI

Ro, 30 April 2021

Memory allocation has been all the craze lately. Take the vivo X60 Pro+, for example. It gives you the option to extend the memory by allocating storage so you gain extra 3GB of RAM. Well, it seems that Xiaomi is working on such a feature of its own too.

A tipster found buried deep in MIUI 12's source code a feature named "Memory extension". It does what the vivo X60 Pro+ does but it's limited to 1GB only. It requires some tinkering before you can unlock the toggle, though.

Hopefully, the feature won't be limited to high-end Xiaomi phones only as the extra RAM would most probably benefit older devices with lower RAM capacity. After all, the idea of Memory extension is to improve multi-tasking capabilities and keep more apps opened in the background.

I want to say that Xiaomi must give at least 4 GB virtual ram. And Global Device variants like Redmi Note 7 global must need virtual ram update in MIUI 13
