Motorola may launch 'next-gen' stylus alongside upcoming flagship

Repeating the mistakes of the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

What you need to know

  • Motorola may be preparing to launch a stylus and case alongside the Edge 30 Ultra.
  • The "Motorola Smart Stylus" will reportedly feature Bluetooth connectivity, wireless charging, and air gestures.
  • The folio case includes a stylus holder and interacts with both the phone and stylus.
  • The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is expected to be the global variant of the Edge X30.

After launching the Motorola X30 last year, we're still waiting on the company's global flagship launch. Yet, while we wait, new information points to come interesting new accessories launching for the rumored Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.

According to XDA-Developers, Motorola is planning to launch a new stylus and case for its upcoming flagship. The "Motorola Smart Stylus," as it may be called, would be the most advanced stylus that the company has launched with a phone, with XDA's sources calling it "next-gen." And from XDA's depiction, it'll have a more robust design than the stylus' that it includes with phones like the Moto G Stylus 5G.

According to XDA, the stylus will support Bluetooth connectivity, air gestures, and wireless charging. When connected to the phone, a small bubble will appear to show the status of the stylus and available apps, much like Samsung's implementation on its best Android phones that support stylus input. Beyond that, it's unclear what functions it will have, but so far, it looks and sounds a lot like the S Pen Pro that Samsung released for its last year's flagships like the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Additionally, Motorola reportedly plans to launch a folio case for the Edge 30 Ultra. The front of the case is designed to show only a strip of the display for functions such as showing notifications and responding to phone calls.

Like the S21 Ultra, the folio case will also be used to house the Smart Stylus, thanks to a pouch in the rear. It seems like a bit of an awkward placement, and it's unclear if it will be secured magnetically or some other way. That said, the folio case will include an interesting design for the display.

It's not clear when Motorola plans to launch the accessories, although it seems likely they'll arrive when the Edge 30 Ultra launches globally. If so, it would make an interesting case against the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is expected to launch with a built-in stylus à la the Galaxy Note 20.

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
