Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is getting a RAM upgrade to up to 4GB thanks to a new software update called RAM Plus. This allows the phone to virtually expand the built-in RAM in order to enhance multitasking on the phone. The software update also improves the camera stability of the Galaxy A52s 5G and carries underlying changes to improve its overall performance. There is also a new Android security patch. The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G was launched in India earlier this month.
The RAM Plus feature uses onboard storage on the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G to virtually expand its RAM. The feature is traditionally known as memory paging and is available on Realme phones as Dynamic RAM Expansion (DRE). It helps increase the built-in RAM by adding 4GB memory from the storage to improve multitasking experiences.
Samsung initially announced the RAM Plus feature at the time of unveiling the Galaxy A52s 5G in the UK last month. It appears to be reaching the India units of the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G through the software update that has a build number A528BXXU1AUH9.
The update also brings the August 2021 Android security patch to the Galaxy A52s 5G. However, the same model in Europe last week received an update with the September Android security patch. That update carried firmware version A528BXXS1AUHA.
In addition to RAM Plus, the Indian update also includes improvements to offer better camera stability on the Galaxy A52s 5G. The new software build also improves the overall performance of the phone.
The update rollout was first reported by SamMobile, though Gadgets 360 was able to independently verify its release. Further, the new software package is 250.49MB in size.
You can download the latest update by going through Settings > Software update and then tapping Download and install.
