- Netflix HDR smartphone support extended two four new devices today.
- The Huawei P20, P20 Pro, Mate 10 Pro, and Sony Xperia XZ2, are all now on the list.
- That brings the total support to 11 smartphones and one tablet.
If you have a television capable of Ultra HD images and a Netflix plan that supports streaming of Ultra HD content, you are enjoying some seriously high-quality media. However, what if you want to watch that UHD content on your phone?
Unfortunately, only a limited number of smartphones have HDR-capable displays, and up until today, Netflix only supported seven of them. But now, we can add four more devices to the list (via 9to5Google): the Sony Xperia XZ2, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro.
These new devices join the LG V30, the Razer Phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the Samsung Galaxy S9, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, the Sony Xperia XZ1, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. That gives us a total of 12 devices.
If you go to this list on the official Netflix support page, you’ll find the compatible device list. However, the Huawei P20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus are not listed; but they do work.
Netflix will likely continue to add devices to the HDR list so that you can experience UHD content on your smartphone wherever you go. Currently, the only plan that supports streaming of UHD content is the Netflix Premium plan, which will set you back $13.99 per month.
