There are a lot of smartphones on the market today that have HDR-compatible displays but for users to get the most out of them, app developers actually have to update their apps with support for HDR. Netflix has a wide variety of HDR content in its streaming library and it has been gradually expanding HDR support to more devices. It has now expanded this support to select smartphones from Sony and Huawei.
The LG G6 was the first device to get Netflix HDR support. The company has since expanded this support to the LG V30, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Tab S3, Sony Xperia Z1, Xperia ZX Premium, and the Razer Phone.
Those who own the Sony Xperia Z2, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and the Huawei P20 will now be able to enjoy streaming HDR titles from Netflix as they have now joined the lineup. This brings up the number of Android smartphones with HDR support from Netflix to ten.
It’s pertinent to mention here that Netflix subscribers require a UHD subscription to stream content in HDR. If you own any one of these devices, simply upgrade the Netflix app on your device to the latest version in order to take advantage of HDR support. You should see an HDR badge on titles that are compatible, most of Netflix’s originals are compatible and so are recent titles from other networks.
