Android 11 Beta (Developer Preview) released for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro
Yesterday the hottest news was how Android 11 Public Beta is out but, just for Pixel phones. That’s apparently changing already but, not entirely. The Developer Preview Beta is now available for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro but, unless you’re a developer it’s not really a great idea to get this version. There’s currently several bugs like Face Unlock not working, the Google Assistant not working and many more but it is a hint that you’ll probably be getting the Public Beta some time soon. If you’re on T-Mobile you won’t be able to get it but if you got an unlocked variant and still do, we have some details in the links in the description.

Samsung might use its own OLED panels on Galaxy S21 as BOE fails quality test
About a month ago we covered how Samsung might ditch Samsung display for BOE for the Galaxy S21 displays but, that apparently won’t be happening. According to a new report from Korea, BOE failed to pass Samsung’s display quality test. Apparently it was the very first quality analysis test but ,they plan to re-apply for another round of testing on their 6.67in flexible OLED panel. It’s not clear if the company already went back to Samsung Display but it might happen, especially with BOE recently failing to supply the first shipment of OLEDs for the iPhone 12.

Meet Sony’s next console – the PlayStation 5
Sony just showed us the PS5 for the first time today and let’s just say it straight out, it blows the Xbox out of the water when it comes to design. It comes in two variants, a vanilla one with a disk slot and a more symmetrical digital one with no disk slot. The USB ports are at the front and it has Sony’s usual blue LED light. The new DualSense controller was revealed some time ago but the company also showed new accessories, like the new DualSense Charging Station that can charge two controllers at the same time. A new HD camera, a new Pulse 3D Wireless headset and even a Media Remote because it’s a pain to control everything with the Controller, especially when you’re watching Netflix or YouTube. The company also announced new exclusive titles like Spiderman 2, starring Miles Morales, an extended an enhanced GTA V, Demon’s Souls, Hitman 3 and more. Sony didn’t specify availability or a price tag but, speculation suggests that the two consoles will be separated by around $100, probably starting at around $500.
