Xiaomi is preparing to hold a large-scale presentation in August, during which it will show a number of new products. The event will be remembered for the announcement of the proprietary MIUI 13 shell. Recently, one of the Chinese sources threw in information about what will be offered in the new firmware. Among the innovations is the function of virtual expansion of the RAM. According to rumors, it will be possible to increase it by 3 GB.
The virtual expansion is effective when the smartphone has a small amount of RAM. This feature is not particularly important for those devices where there is more than enough RAM. But for some reason, the company decided to bypass the model, where there is little RAM.
According to one of the sources, only those devices based on Snapdragon 888, Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 865 will receive the function of swapping RAM with MIUI 13. Top-end devices that have already received a decent amount of RAM have such SoCs. They do not really need to expand the RAM, while the models that need this function more and more are left behind. Perhaps later it will get to some other Xiaomi smartphones.
Other innovations coming in MIUI 13 include the ability to play games in floating application windows, new desktop icons, animations and sounds.
