What you need to know

  • Realme GT 2 series is now official.
  • The Realme GT 2 Pro is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and features a 2K LTPO AMOLED display.
  • Realme's vanilla GT 2 is a value flagship featuring the older Snapdragon 888 chipset and a 120Hz E4 AMOLED display.

Realme on January 4 announced the GT2 series flagship phones at an event held in China. Unlike previous Realme flagships, the new GT2 Pro is targeted at the premium smartphone segment. What sets the Realme GT 2 Pro apart from its rivals is its design. It is the first phone to use a bio-based polymer design and ships in recyclable packaging.

The flagship phone is powered by Qualcomm's 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. It sports a 6.7-inch 2K AMOLED flat display with LTPO 2.0 technology and 1-120Hz adaptive refresh rate.

On the back of the Realme GT 2 Pro is a triple-camera setup featuring a 50MP IMX766 primary sensor with all-pixel Omni-directional PDAF and OIS. It is joined by a 50MP 150-degree ultra-wide camera and a 40x micro-lens camera.

The ultra-wide camera enables users to capture extreme panoramas, while the micro-lens camera can take extreme close-ups of objects. Some of the other key highlights of the Realme GT 2 Pro include a 5000mAh battery with support for 65W charging speeds, a 32MP selfie camera, and stereo speakers.

While the GT 2 Pro is Realme's answer to the best Android phones in the premium segment, the vanilla GT 2 is a value flagship powered by last year's Snapdragon 888 chipset. The phone also has a 120Hz E4 AMOLED display, the same 50MP IMX766 primary sensor as the GT 2 Pro, and a 5000mAh battery with 65W charging. On the software front, both the GT 2 series phones run Realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12.

Realme GT 2 starts at 2,599 yuan (about $410), while the GT 2 Pro will start at 3,699 yuan (about $580) during the early bird sales in China. There's no word yet on when the two phones will leave China.

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
