Google introduced the “a” model (3a and 3a XL) as the more affordable option in the Pixel lineup, so those choosing to upgrade from a Pixel 3a XL to a Pixel 4 will experience a rather nice performance boost. You would be going from a Snapdragon 670 processor, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, to a Snapdragon 855 processor, with 6GB of RAM and options for 64GB or 128GB of storage. The front-facing camera goes from a standard 8MP camera to an 8MP wide-angle, and the rear camera adds a new 16MP telephoto alongside the existing 12.2MP dual-pixel rear camera.
