Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is coming to these phones in 2022

Qualcomm's 2022 flagship chipset will make its way to devices from all major Android manufacturers.

Qualcomm has unveiled the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, with the flagship chipset getting a new name and exciting upgrades on the hardware front, including the latest Arm cores, new AI engine, and imaging tweaks that will allow phones that leverage the platform to take much better photos.

We don't have to wait long to see the first phones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1; the Xiaomi 12 will be the first to use the platform, with a launch slated for sometime in December. We should also see one of the BBK entities follow suit shortly thereafter, and with Nubia, Motorola, and Honor on the list, the best Android phones will once again use the latest Qualcomm design. Here's the full list:

  • Xiaomi
  • Redmi
  • OnePlus
  • OPPO
  • Vivo
  • Realme
  • Nubia
  • Black Shark
  • Motorola
  • iQOO
  • Honor
  • Sony
  • ZTE

Now, Samsung isn't mentioned here, and that's normal. Samsung is always missing from Qualcomm's list of phone partners, but the Galaxy S22 will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in North America and select global markets.

What's interesting in that list is the inclusion of Redmi; Xiaomi's sub-brand is focused on the budget and mid-range segments, but last year it started using the Snapdragon 888 on the Redmi K40 Pro that eventually debuted globally as the Mi 11X Pro.

Next year's OnePlus 10 series is also going to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and with the OPPO integration now finalized, there should be even more similarities to the Find X5. Vivo, similarly, is going to use the Qualcomm design in the X80 series, with all three manufacturers set to launch their flagships in Q1.

Then we have Motorola, Nubia, Vivo sub-brand iQOO, Sony, and Honor, with all of these manufacturers set to launch phones sometime over the course of 2022. Qualcomm is touting heady gains with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and we'll have to get our hands on the first set of devices to see how it differs to the Snapdragon 888.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

HBO just canceled this comedy, despite its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

HBO has canceled animated comedy after three seasons.  Close Enough was created by JG Quintel, the man behind cult comedy Regular Show, who also topped the bill of voice actors, which included Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian and Danielle Brooks. Close Enough followed Josh and Emily – and their young daughter Candice – a couple in their late 30s, who live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
