Samsung has unveiled a new variant of the Samsung Galaxy A32 4G in the Indian market. It’s not common to see Samsung re-launching smartphones, but apparently, there is a good reason for this. The new variant comes for those who need more multitasking capabilities. So, the company has equipped the new piece with 8 GB of RAM. The smartphone was launched earlier this year in India in a single 6 GB of RAM variant with 128 GB of Internal Storage. Now, the new variant has 8 GB of RAM with 128 GB of Internal Storage. Interestingly, the device comes with a new Samsung RAM Plus. For those unaware, this is Samsung’s take for virtual RAM.
We can say list a set of things that marked 2021 in the smartphone industry. However, a very unexpected trend has started earlier this year with the Vivo X60 series – the virtual RAM feature. The concept is quite old and comes from the computer segment. The OS takes a portion of internal storage to use as RAM. This enhances multi-tasking and brings some relief for the physical RAM where dormant tasks can be put into the virtual RAM slot. It started with Vivo and since the launch, many smartphone brands have joined this trend. Each brand has its name, and Samsung calls it RAM Plus feature. Now, in addition to the extra physical RAM, the new variant also gets aided with virtual RAM.
