Last month, iQOO launched the iQOO Z6 Lite 5G smartphone in the Indian market. The iQOO Z6 Lite 5G is the first smartphone in the country to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 processor. The iQOO Z6 Lite 5G comes in 4GB and 6GB RAM options. Now, a month after the launch, the brand has started rolling out a new update for the iQOO Z6 Lite 5G users in the country.
The latest update brings with it Extended RAM 3.0 which enables up to 6GB of more RAM on the iQOO Z6 Lite 5G. Let us take a closer look at the details.
iQOO Z6 Lite Gets Up to 12GB RAM with Extended RAM 3.0
In order to help people with multi-tasking, iQOO has enabled 6GB of Extended RAM on the 6GB variant of the iQOO Z6 Lite 5G. Whereas, for the 4GB RAM variant, an additional 4GB Extended RAM will be available after the update. This means that iQOO Z6 Lite 128GB storage variant users can get 12GB of RAM on their device. Whereas, iQOO Z6 Lite 64GB storage variant users will enjoy 8GB of RAM. This should certainly help users multitask smoothly.
iQOO says that the update will be rolled out via an OTA starting today itself. We can expect it to be a staged rollout, so it might take up to a couple of days for the rollout to complete.
