Can you upgrade cell phone ram in smartphone

Androids and other phone have ram listed in the specs and i was wondering is it possible to buy a ram chip and upgrade them?

Not quite sure what these other people have been drinking, but a RAM chip is soldered onto the main board of current phones. This is not simply 'upgradeable', nor will any manufacturer notify you or even offer a RAM upgrade for your phone.
If it is possible, then you will need a ram chip for a phone that runs on the same voltage and amps, heat the soldering around your current chip on the main board (which can cause immense damage to the phone and give you a nice, shiny brick), pry it off, replace with new RAM chip, reheat it into place. Then hoping the phone accepts it and doesn't just lie there, making smoke and sparks.

Custom housing and RAM chip notifications -> No. Just: no.

It is actually possible but you need to get a compatible memory chip. The chip installed is already programmed to the device and you will need to program the new one if you are going to use it. Besides it might not possibly fit to the casing of the mobile phone and you will need to make a custom housing for the phone.
