How does the Android emulator emulate the RAM?



  • How does the Google Android emulator emulate the RAM?

    Does it use the physical RAM of the host or use secondary memory like the hard disk?



  • Android Virtual Devices are emulated using https://developer.android.com/studio/run/emulator-commandline hypervisor which use physical memory. As any process, the allocated memory pages can be unmapped and swapped to disk or other storage by the host system.
