The joke is that since RAM is a physical aspect of your phone, it’s impossible to add it via software. However, a new feature called Samsung RAM Plus is rolling out now the Galaxy A52S (via SamMobile), and it is likely as close as we’re going to get to being able to download more RAM.

RAM Plus essentially co-opts a portion of your phone’s internal storage and converts it into up to 4GB of “RAM,” meaning virtual memory. In certain situations, this could increase the performance of your phone. However, since the RAM is virtual and not physical, it could have little-to-no effect on performance. In some situations, it could even weaken performance.
Most operating systems have this feature. Android has it already baked in as does Windows, for example. However, Samsung RAM Plus gives the user an easy way to control it, which is something not too many other companies have done. Oppo has a similar system, to be clear.
It’s not clear if this feature will come to other Samsung devices soon. It might make sense for it to land on lower-end phones, but it would be kind of silly to have it on flagships with 8GB of RAM or more — which is plenty.
