The problem affected the Mi 11 Ultra and Redmi K40 with the Chinese MIUI ROM first. All Mi 10 still have virtual RAM available after installing the latest version of Android.
Nevertheless, Will Xiaomi phones in global ROM also run out of memory extension? Until now, the brand has not said anything about it. Maybe the loss of this popular feature is only in the Chinese version of the Xiaomi customization layer.
Sure, virtual RAM is one of the great improvements that came with MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition. So it is quite disappointing that the setting disappears from Xiaomi’s most powerful mobiles.
There are two theories that could explain why Xiaomi with Android 12 already do not have virtual extension available:
- maybe it’s necessary remove this setting to adapt Google OS to MIUI.
- Or, on the other hand, Xiaomi may have realized that virtual RAM does not improve the performance of its flagships much. For this reason, the brand decided to remove the function from mobile phones such as the Mi 11 Ultra e include it only in less powerful smartphones.
In any case, the ideal is to wait for Xiaomi publish an official statement on this topic.
