Samsung has started to roll out a feature on its Galaxy smartphones to improve the device’s performance in specific scenarios. With Android 12, the “Turbo” function is considerably enhanced and has become the norm.
It all began with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G. The “RAM Plus” feature, which adds virtual memory to the dedicated memory, was introduced by Samsung. This offers you a 4 GB memory buffer, which can make a difference if you’re running multiple apps simultaneously. High-end smartphones like the Galaxy Z Fold 3 have 12 GB of RAM, but especially with low-cost phones.
In the second beta version of Android 12 for the Galaxy S21, the feature is stated as part of the new operating system. As a result, with Android 12, Samsung introduces the “RAM Plus” capability to all models. Although the extension is already available under Android 11, all supported smartphones should acquire it as soon as the new operating system version is released.
Samsung will update a wide variety of older Galaxy devices to Android 12 so that you can experience a little boost when the device reaches its memory limits. Particularly in the entry-level and mid-range smartphone markets. Many models will be affected by the revised policy of up to four years, which also applies retroactively till the Galaxy S10.
When will Samsung smartphones get Android 12?
On the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung is currently testing Android 12 with One UI 4.0 in the second beta version. In announcing the final version of Android 12, Google stated that other manufacturers’ definitive versions will be published by the end of the year. It’s unlikely to take as long with Samsung. The Galaxy S21 should be ready in November when no problems arise.
