A swap file will appear in the new Xiaomi firmware

Windows has long been implemented the ability to use the swap file, that is to reserve space on your hard drive, which will be used by the system as additional RAM in case of lack of primary. The new Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G firmware also got a 2GB swap file. Virtual RAM is much slower than hardware memory, but with its help you can noticeably speed up your mobile device.

The technology of virtual memory application in mobile devices is successfully used by Vivo in FuntouchOS and OriginOS firmware. Until recently, this option was not implemented in Xiaomi devices. During normal operation of the device virtual RAM is not used and becomes active only in moments of acute shortage of hardware RAM.

According to rumors, the option of virtual RAM will be one of the "features" of the new MIUI 13.
