The Honor 60 series could make its global debut sometime early next year.

What you need to know

  • The Honor 60 series is now official.
  • Honor 60 Pro is the first to feature Qualcomm's upgraded Snapdragon 778+ chipset.
  • The new Honor 60 series phones also sport 108MP main cameras and support 66W fast charging.

Back in June this year, Honor announced the world's first phones powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 778G chipset. The company has now unveiled the first phone featuring the Snapdragon 778G+, a slightly faster version of the 778G.

The new Honor 60 Pro sports a 6.78-inch quad-curved OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Like the best Android phones on the market, the 60 Pro's display supports HDR10+ and touts 100% DCI-P3 coverage.

In the camera department, the Honor 60 Pro has a triple-lens setup featuring a 108MP main sensor with 9-in-1 pixel binning, a 50MP ultra-wide lens that doubles up as a macro shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the phone has a 50MP camera on the front with a 100-degree super-wide-angle lens.

The phone promises the "ultimate vlogging experience," thanks to its AI-powered gesture recognition technology. Content creators can use hand gestures to switch between the front and back cameras, picture-in-picture modes, and single and dual lenses.

The Honor 60 Pro packs a fairly large 4,800mAh battery with support for 66W wired charging. Honor claims a 15-minute charge will get you to 50%, which sounds quite impressive.

The vanilla Honor 60 comes with a 6.67-inch OLED display that is curved only on the sides. However, it offers the same FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 778G chipset, just like the Honor 50 series phones.

The Honor 60 also has a triple-camera setup on the back with a 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. As for selfies, the phone is equipped with a 32MP camera on the front. The rest of its key specs are more or less identical to the Pro model. On the software side of things, the new Honor 60 series phones will ship with Android 12-based Magic UI 5.0 out of the box.

The Honor 60 Pro has been priced at 3,699 yuan (about $580) for the 8GB/256GB version and 3,999 yuan (about $628) for the 12GB/256GB version. The vanilla Honor 60, on the other hand, starts at 2,699 yuan (about $424) and goes up to 3,299 yuan (about $518) for the top-end 12GB/256GB version.

Although the company hasn't confirmed any details yet, the new Honor 60 series could make its global debut sometime in early 2022.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive
