It is something of a shocker, yet a glance at a Geekbench benchmark test for the Google Pixel 4 XL reveals that the phone will utilize Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.1. The issue is that UFS 3.0 is accessible and the OnePlus 7 Pro was the first to have it. What’s the major deal you inquire? UFS 3.0 opens applications and games quicker, boots up quicker and can all the more effectively move huge video and image files.
As indicated by the Geekbench results, which were dispersed in a tweet by tech aficionado Zyad Atef, the rates at which the Pixel 4 XL had the option to read and write from the UFS chip (655.57Mbps and 254.48Mbps separately) fall in accordance with the UFS 2.1 speeds instead of the more up to newer version. For instance, successive read and write speeds with UFS 3.0 can arrive at 2100Mbps and 410Mbps, individually.
Two firsts for the Pixel line this year: 6GB of memory and numerous rear cameras
With Google positioning the Pixel 4 line as maybe the most feature-packed Android phone for the following year, utilizing UFS 2.1 rather than 3.0 produces an awful search for the company. Think about that the new models should have another protected face open that utilizations 3D mapping, highlight screens with a rich smooth 90Hz refresh rate, and enable the units to be controlled with hand signals utilizing Motion Sense (thanks to the Soli radar-based chips). On the off chance that Google is not kidding about taking the Pixel line to the following level, why not make it keep running as quick as conceivable by including UFS 3.0? They could make the supposition this has something to do with holding the cost down, yet the OnePlus 7 Pro, which has UFS 3.0, isn’t actually a phone that will break their budget.
The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will accompany 6GB of memory without precedent for the historical backdrop of the line, a 50% hike from the 4GB previously found on the phones. Furthermore, Google is including a second 16MP telephoto camera to both new phones this year, ready to consolidate Google’s Super Res Zoom with optical zoom to deliver great photographs with up to 8x zoom. The bigger Pixel 4 XL will include a third sensor which could be a Time of Flight (ToF) infrared depth sensor or a spectral sensor. The last can catch images of things that are not for the most part observed by the human eye, for example, x-rays, ultraviolet rays, and infrared rays.
Another issue that has some potential Pixel 4 purchasers upset is the obvious utilization of the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform to c power the series. They may ask theirself what the object is about since the next-generation Snapdragon 865 SoC won’t be seen inside a phone until one year from now. Those complaining would have favored that Google put the overclocked Snapdragon 855+ chipset in the hood. Designed for mobile gaming, the Snapdragon 855+ offers a 15% exhibition knock from the Adreno 640 GPU for improved graphics and an expansion in the clock speed of the Kryo 485 CPU cores from 2.84GHz to 2.96GHz. Would the regular Joe on the street feel a distinction? Undoubtedly not, albeit a veteran mobile game player may. In any case, in case they will outfit the new Pixels with a 90Hz refresh rate for the screen on each model, why not go all out?
What’s more, that takes us back to the utilization of UFS 2.1. Google clearly needs the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL to offer a quick and smooth experience for Android users. What’s more, no doubt not exclusively will Google seek to challenge Samsung and Apple in execution, however in estimating also. So in view of this, Google may have been better serviced by loading the up and coming Pixels with UFS 3.0 regardless of whether it implied charging a slightly more expensive rate for the phones.
