Xiaomi would have a new idea to improve the performance of its smartphones. In a recently published article, the mysmartialis site relays a developer who indicates that the Chinese manufacturer is working on a way to virtually increase the RAM memory of smartphones using MIUM (which is the version of Android developed by Xiaomi for its smartphones) .

While exploring the MIUI beta code, this developer would have discovered evidence suggesting that Xiaomi is developing a virtual RAM memory system. In essence, this virtual RAM would use part of the storage memory, and allow an improvement in performance.

Of course, at the moment, this is a rumor. And therefore, caution is in order. But in any case, if Xiaomi launches this virtual RAM system on its smartphones, it would not be the first.

For example, the Vivo X60 already uses a similar mechanism in order to expand RAM memory using internal storage. The device comes with 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM, which can be expanded with an additional 3 GB (virtual RAM). As Vivo explains on its website: “With Virtual RAM technology, a 12 GB X60 can effectively have 15 GB of RAM5. Enjoy the freedom to run multiple apps at faster speeds. “
