Netflix adds HDR support for the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Users can experience Netflix in a whole different dimension with High Dynamic Range (HDR) support. However, in order to use the video-enhanced technology, your device must permit it, and unfortunately at this time, there aren’t many that are capable.

Over the weekend it was confirmed that two, unreleased devices, the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8, would gain support for watching HDR content inside Netflix. With it, videos will look more cinematic, and colors will be especially true to life.

There are still a few handsets out there which are capable of viewing HDR and Dolby Vision enhanced content, but lack the added support needed for the supreme-quality Netflix viewing. Of the high-end devices that have already released this year, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium and LG G6 are the only with support for this ultra high-standard. The Sony Xperia XZ1, which was recently announced at IFA 2017 in Berlin, will also gain support for Netflix HDR viewing some time soon.

If watching videos in HDR is important to you, consider buying one of the above mentioned devices, all of which are featured on our list of best Android smartphones of 2017 (thus far).
