HDR Now Available on More Handheld Devices – Samsung Galaxy Note8

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is a technology that allows for “darker darks and whiter whites” on video screens and consequently a more realistic picture. A number of titles on Netflix are available in HDR so long as you have a ‘4 screen’ subscription that allows for Ultra HD / 4K streaming and a HDR-compatible screen to watch it on. More and more 4K TVs are HDR-compatible and a small number of Android devices are adding the feature.

The news today is that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note8 (yet to be officially announced) has appeared on Netflix’s list of HDR-capable Android devices. Netflix supports two different HDR streaming formats, Dolby Vision and UltraHD Premium (HDR). The full list is now as follows:

Dolby Vision:
– LG G6

– LG V30
– Samsung Galaxy Note 8
– Sony Xperia XZ Premium
– Sony Xperia XZ1
