Seek more RAM? Oppo has you covered

July 4, 2021

Oppo has introduced RAM+, a RAM expansion technology to MEA users for the first time on its Reno5 series of smartphones from June 2021. RAM+ operates as an auxiliary function that allows Oppo Reno5 series users to temporarily convert a small portion of their smartphone’s read-only memory (ROM) into virtual random-access memory (RAM), maximising the phone’s effeciency and processing capabilities.

Depending on the phones memory specifics, the RAM storage on Reno5 series phones can be expanded up to 7GB. Users will experience optimised performance through the enlarged RAM that supports increased data processing capability and reduces frame loss rate and fragmentation. RAM+ ensures smoother switching between apps that are running simultaneously in the background, allowing the phone’s configuration to be used to its fullest. In addition, Oppo supports three levels of adjustments in this function, providing users the flexibility to temporarily adjust the size of their RAM according to their needs.

During data-heavy tasks such as sharing images or gaming, RAM+ can eliminate the possibility of a system slowdown by temporarily increasing RAM ensuring a smoother and more stable system running, supporting the phone’s capability.

The RAM expansion function can be located in the ‘About Phone’ section within the Settings app, after updating the software to the latest version. Users need to simply select the amount of virtual RAM to be added and restart the phone to experience enhanced data processing capability.

RAM+ will be available to Oppo Reno5 Series , Oppo A94 and Oppo A74 from June 2021 following a software update notification.
