Ever wanted to download more RAM? Xiaomi's latest feature will allow some owners to do something of the sort. After offering a Memory Extension feature on the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G weeks ago, Xiaomi is set to bring a more impressive implementation to its premium phones including the Poco F3, Mi 10, and Mi 11 series.

A few weeks ago, Xiaomi began rolling out an update to the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G. That update offered a rather unique feature that allowed owners of the device to add more RAM to their phones by using a part of their available storage. Xiaomi is now expanding that feature rollout to include its flagship phones.

While the update for the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G rolled out in stable beta form, this build is currently exclusive to Chinese closed beta users. The update is currently available for the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10 Ultra, Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, Poco F3, and Mi 11i. Xiaomi's Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 888 devices, essentially. It's only available as a MIUI 12.5 build. Also, while the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G's take allows a maximum of 1 GB of RAM to be added, this implementation allows for up to 3 GB.

While this is a handy feature to have, it's a bit curious that Xiaomi is implementing this on its flagship phones. The phones that get this feature in this form all already have upwards of 8 GB of RAM and most would consider that to be adequate. One would expect Xiaomi to focus on its mid-range and budget phones that typically ship with way less RAM.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
