When Samsung released the Galaxy J2 Pro in India, one of the things they introduced in this better version of the Galaxy J2 is something called Turbo Speed Technology, which will supposedly load “ applications up to 40 percent faster than a unit with double the RAM capacity.” But people didn’t really understand what that meant and why they didn’t just add more RAM or replaced it with a higher processor. Now a new video from the OEM explains the technology.

The almost 3 minute video tries to explain in layman’s terms (although it may lose said laymen at several points during the video) how this technology can actually improve app load times, multitasking and RAM allocation, without necessarily having to add more processors and memory resources. One of the things the TST did was to reduce the size and memory footprint of the bundled core apps, including SMS, gallery, contacts, camera, etc. So even when you’re multi-tasking with these apps, it reduces the RAM consumed.

The core apps were also then rearranged into a single page format so that it consumes less RAM as well. The system also finds “hogs” or inactive apps that takes up a lot of your resources and then kills them automatically not just form the RAM but also from the kernel to terminate the system processes. Lastly, the freed up space from these processes is also rearranged and decluttered to make even more space.

On paper, the Galaxy J2 Pro, with its measly 2GB of RAM, should be able to outperform the current flagship S-series devices. But they won’t be able to really test it out unless they make the smartphone available in areas outside of India. We’re pretty sure that the Turbo Speed Technology is something that future Samsung smartphones will also carry, if it really is that successful.
