What you need to know

  • The upcoming Xiaomi 12 will be the first device to get Qualcomm's next-generation premium chipset.
  • Xiaomi has confirmed this information at the Qualcomm Tech Summit.
  • The flagship device is likely to debut in December, just like its predecessor.

Xiaomi's Lei Jun has announced that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform will make its way first to the upcoming Xiaomi 12 series, contrary to a previous rumor.

The company's founder and CEO has confirmed the latest development at Qualcomm's Tech Summit in Hawaii. He noted that Qualcomm and Xiaomi collaborated for several months to bring its latest flagship SoC to the Xiaomi 12.

Xiaomi has been among the first to release devices powered by Qualcomm's latest designs, and this trend is unlikely to change anytime soon. Last year, the Chinese phone maker beat Samsung to the punch by introducing the Snapdragon 888-powered Xiaomi Mi 11 series. Having said that, Xiaomi took a few months to launch that phone outside of China.

Jun also highlighted a number of improvements made by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in terms of AI capabilities, camera, gaming, and other areas. Previous rumors suggested that Xiaomi's answer to the best Android phones next year could include an insanely large camera sensor based on Samsung's 200MP ISOCELL HP1.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is built on a 4nm process and includes a 3GHz ARM Cortex X2 high-performance core that should provide a 40% performance boost over its predecessor. The chipset can also achieve faster AI capabilities thanks to Qualcomm's 7th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine.

There is no set date for when the Xiaomi 12 will be available to consumers, but Jun stated that it will arrive soon. According to the latest leaks, Xiaomi will unveil the next flagship phone in late December.

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&#

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

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
