Google Pixel 4a touted to offer much better performance than the Pixel 3a
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.
