The Google Pixel 4a is on the way, and more rumors and leaks are starting to surface. They've been mostly positive, however, and the latest leak touts the upcoming Google mid-range offering to offer considerably better performance than its predecessor, the Pixel 3a.

According to the leak, the Pixel 4a will feature UFS 2.1 storage. A few years ago, that was a feature reserved for flagship phones. The Pixel 3a had to make do with eMMC 5.1 storage. UFS 2.1 offers 200% faster read speed and 20% faster write speeds than eMMC 5.1. That's a significant boost in performance especially when it comes to opening apps and loading files.

Most flagship phones this year will move to the newer UFS 3.0, but UFS 2.1 is still an impressive storage system. The Pixel 4 flagships, for example, actually feature UFS 2.1.

The Pixel 4a is also touted to come with 6 GB of RAM, up from the 4 GB last year's Pixel 3a ran with. Moving things along on the phone will be the Snapdragon 730, also a handy improvement on the Snapdragon 670 we saw on the Pixel 3a phones.
