The Google Pixel 3a ushered in mid-range Pixel devices last year, and while the Pixel 4 was not launched in India, the upcoming Pixel 4a may be sold here. And, according to new findings by XDA Developers, the Pixel 4a may sport some flagship features.

While the Pixel 3a fetched a higher than usual price (for a mid-ranger) in India, particularly for the camera hardware, the rest of the internals lagged behind some of the cheaper alternatives available. To recall, the Pixel 3a came with the Snapdragon 670 and just 4GB of RAM along with eMMC flash storage. The Pixel 4a may change that if this new report is to be believed.

Among other notable upgrades that are expected, the Pixel 4a is likely to come with faster UFS 2.1 flash storage, that should theoretically make apps load faster on the device.

A YouTuber shared a screengrab of the alleged bootloader screen of the Pixel 4a that highlighted “Ufs: 64GB SKHynix”. Further investigation revealed the storage chip on the upcoming mid-ranger is the 64GB UFS 2.1 H9HQ53AECMMDAR-KEM from SK Hynix.

Having a UFS 2.1 storage means that data read and write speeds will see a big bump in the Pixel 4a, and even better power efficiency. This should entail that the Pixel 4a could see noticeably faster app loading speeds. As of now, it’s not clear whether Google will offer storage variants more than 64GB.

Previous rumours revealed the Pixel 4a could be powered by the Snapdragon 730 SoC and come with 6GB RAM, a single punch-hole camera drilled into a 5.81-inch 1080p display with 60Hz refresh rate. On the back is a single 12MP camera with a 3,080mAh battery powering everything.
