With every update, Genshin Impact gets new banners, events, quests, and regions. This naturally implies that the storage requirements of the game increases every 42 days.

Storage has always been a glaring issue for players, especially those who play on mobile. Not all devices can run a high-end game that also takes up over 10 GB of data.

Mobile- Android

On Android, miHoYo's action RPG requires over 10 GB of reserved space (as mentioned by the official website). However, since the release of version 2.5, this has increased to over 16.36 GB of data.

Other requirements for smooth gameplay are:

  • Operating System: Android 7.0 and above
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Kirin 820, or above
  • RAM: 4 GB or more

It is evident that only high-end devices with the latest chipsets will be able to run the game smoothly in March 2022.

Correct me if I’m wrong on this, but I believe the only other mobile game (that isn’t CODM) that takes 10 gigs in storage space is Genshin Impact. Hmmmmmmmm

It won't be a surprise if the aforementioned storage requirements increase after the 2.6 update. The Chasm and Ayato will arrive in the next update alongside some story and Archon quests.

Players who are struggling to manage their device storage can try deleting the unused voice-over packs from the in-game settings. This can help them in clearing over 3-4GBs data.


As of now, version 2.5 is live with Yae Miko's banner. Two rerun banners featuring Kokomi and Raiden Shogun will be released in the second half of the current update.
