What you need to know

  • The upcoming OnePlus 10 series will be powered by Qualcomm's latest flagship processor.
  • Pete Lau made the announcement shortly after the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was unveiled.
  • OnePlus could introduce its next-generation device in April 2022.

Soon after Qualcomm unveiled its latest premium processor, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the company's next-generation flagship series will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

Lau stated on his official Weibo page that the new chispet will be included in the company's next-generation devices (via PhoneArena). He didn't mention the OnePlus 10 and 10 Pro, but that's what the company's next phones will most likely be called.

The OnePlus 10 Pro's alleged renders leaked last month, with a design that appeared to be inspired by the Samsung Galaxy S21. The renders revealed a different rear camera array than that found on previous OnePlus devices.

So far, five smartphones have been confirmed to include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. The chipset will be used by OPPO, OnePlus' sister company, in the upcoming Oppo Find X4. Meanwhile, the same chipset will power the upcoming Xiaomi 12 series, Motorola Edge X30, and the Realme GT 2 series.

The 4nm-based processor is expected to outperform its predecessor, the Snapdragon 888, by up to 40%. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 includes a new 3GHz ARM Cortex X2 high-performance core as well as 4x faster AI performance thanks to Qualcomm's 7th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine.

It's not surprising that OnePlus will include a premium SoC in its upcoming flagship devices, as it did with the OnePlus 9 series. OnePlus has yet to reveal any details about the OnePlus 10 series' specifications.

With Qualcomm's latest chipset in the works, OnePlus' next-generation devices should be able to compete with the best Android phones next year, including the Galaxy S22 series. It is rumored to make its global debut in April 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
