According to the findings of April 2020 discovered by XDA Developers, Google will require Android 11 to have smartphones with at least 2 GB of RAM.

Consumers naturally demand more features and performance in every new generation operating system, and every new feature released requires smartphones to have more powerful hardware. A new leak by XDA Developers suggests that Android 11 will increase the minimum system requirements.

According to the leak, Google will run standard Android features and require a smartphone to be supported by Google Mobile Services to have at least 2 GB of RAM with Android 11. This reveals that smartphones with less than 2 GB of RAM will come with ‘mandatory’ Android Go in the near future.

Android Go may be mandatory for phone with Android 11 and less than 2 GB of RAM

We were now seeing that smartphones with more than 1 GB of RAM or less come with the Android Go operating system. Also, since Google Play needed 512 MB of RAM for boot, there was no obligation for manufacturers to use Android Go. Android 11, on the other hand, may present a necessity as it increases the system requirements.

However, let us underline that the findings of XDA Developers belong to April. As a result, Google may have determined that the minimum 2 GB RAM requirement is high and may have reduced the minimum system requirements. We have no choice but to follow Google’s explanations to find out the latest situation.
