RAM (random access memory) is a major attribute of the customer-purchasing journey and the everyday user aspires for a mobile phone with plenty of RAM. A mobile phones has two memories, RAM and ROM, which correspond to the memory and hard disk of a computer respectively. The memory is responsible for running programs and exchanging data, while the hard disk means the storage space where you can store photos, videos and other files. All programs in the phone run on RAM, therefore, read and write speed and capacity of RAM are crucial for the performance of the phone.
Countless smartphone users have encountered a scenario where the game is forced back and has to be reloaded only because users switch to social apps to replay messages during playing the game. This is the so-called “Kill APP” which is caused by insufficient memory. With a larger running memory, users can run more apps simultaneously and quickly switch between apps without lag. This is a big deal for heavy users and especially gamers as more ram make the game run smoother, making the experience proudly more fun. RAM, however, increases the price significantly leading to a dilemma for customers wanting a phone with more ram but not having the budget to purchase it.
Infinix extends RAM for a smooth experience
With the latest OTA update, the NOTE 11 Series featured a brand new feature featuring extended RAM technology, which allows the phones RAM to be boosted. Upon installing this OTA :
- In NOTE 11s (8GB+128GB), device’s RAM will be boosted by 3GB – from 8GB to 11GB.
- Similarly, in NOTE 11s (6GB+64GB), device’s RAM will be boosted by 1GB – from 6GB to 7GB.
- Similarly, in NOTE 11 (4GB+64GB), device’s RAM will be boosted by 1GB – from 4GB to 5GB.
This is a game-changer when you’re using more apps at a certain time and need a temporary boost in performance without compromising your daily battery life too much. Extended RAM technology means that a part of the ROM will be used to work as RAM when the RAM is not sufficient to ensure smooth performance.
With extended RAM technology enabled, the number of apps that the Infinix NOTE 11S can run simultaneously is increases from 9 to 20. With the same 20 apps running, the average startup speed of applications can be increased by 60% to about 300ms in the Note 11 Series. The phone can load games faster and ensure that users can get into games quickly even if they switch among multiple apps.
The Infinix NOTE 11S also features a more advanced UFS 2.2 flash memory, which uses write booster technology, providing faster storage speeds than traditional UFS 2.1, including an 8% increase in random write speed, 35% in random read speed, and 80% in sequential write speed.
Physical memory in Android phones has climbed from 1GB to 8GB in the past decade, and there are several flagship phones with 10GB or more. In contrast, Infinix adopts its own extended RAM technology on the basis of the increased physical memory, bringing users a more stable and smooth multi-application running experience through technology upgrades for the same attainable price.
Next generational technology isn’t beyond reach and Infinix is working hard to ensure several future devices have innovative technology that solves the daily issues consumers face at a convenient and attainable price point.
