Netflix has released the list of HDR compatible smartphones

While HDR content is increasing day by day in internet broadcasts, Netflix has taken new steps in this regard. The list of smartphones where HDR content can be viewed with the Netflix application has been published. Especially smartphones belonging to brands such as Samsung, Xiaomi and Huawei with high resolution screens are included in the list published by Netflix.

Netflix has announced the list of HDR compatible smartphones

Smartphones must have this feature to be able to view HDR content. However, today the flagship model of many brands is offered for sale with HDR support. Most of the newly released content by Netflix came with the HDR option. As such, Netflix updated its HDR support list for more mobile app subscribers.

After the introduction of new flagships such as Xiaomi Mi 11 and Samsung Galaxy S21, Netflix has renewed the list of devices that offer HDR support. No announcement is made after the list is refreshed.

You can see the list of these devices by entering the relevant section on the Netflix Support page. Those who want to watch HDR content must subscribe to Netflix’s Ultra HD plan.

What is Netflix with Dolby Vision or HDR10?

Netflix supports two HDR streaming formats, Dolby Vision and HDR10.

  • A Netflix plan that supports watching Ultra HD quality content.
  • A Netflix compatible device that supports Dolby Vision or HDR.
  • A smart TV that supports Dolby Vision or HDR10 and connects to your device via an HDMI port that supports HDCP 2.2 or higher (usually via an HDMI 1 port).
  • A steady internet connection speed of 25 megabits per second or more.
  • Broadcast quality set to high.

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. This means a greater, more perceptible contrast between the brightest and darkest parts of an image. The idea is that your eyes can detect whites that are darker and blacks that are darker than conventional SDR TVs. The introduction of HDR changed all that.

HDR content preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of a lost picture using older standards such as Rec.709. HDR10 is the standardized HDR format required to support TVs and content to be HDR compatible. Still, it’s not the only version on the market. There is Dolby Vision created by Dolby. In response, Samsung created its own version of HDR10 + powered by Amazon Video and a growing number of Hollywood film studios.

WHAT DOES HDR MEAN ON MOBILE DEVICES?

Before exploring HDR in TVs in more detail, let’s note that display technology tends to filter according to other product categories and hence developments in the TV world have infiltrated the mobile world. Phones and tablets are increasingly increasing the peak brightness of their screens, and a great deal of effort is being made to support HDR-compatible versions of streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Video.

HDR on phones won’t have the same impact or subtlety as a good TV, but it can make a big difference. If you’re upgrading your phone and want to watch Star Trek Discovery in vibrant and colorful glory on the go, there is one thing to keep in mind. Let’s go back to the big show.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF HDR TV?

There are two things that define an HDR TV. Contrast performances and the number of colors they can display. Let’s start with the first.

Contrast: Contrast is one of the most important factors in determining how good a TV picture looks and is the most important part of an HDR TV. It refers to the difference between light and dark. The greater the difference, the greater the “contrast”.

There are two components to consider here. The first is, not surprisingly, the highest luminosity measured by what is known as “nit”, which expresses how bright a TV can be. Think of a vinegar as equivalent to the brightness of a candle. TVs must meet a certain amount of vinegar in order to receive the HDR label.

The other measure is black level. Similar to the highest brightness, the black level refers to how dark a TV picture can appear and is also measured in nits. For example, a TV can have a peak brightness of 400 nits and a black level of 0.4 nits.

The difference between the highest brightness and black level is known as the contrast ratio. HDR TVs must meet certain standards for the highest brightness and black level that help give them a dynamic look.

Color: This is the second of the most important aspects of HDR. As far as color is concerned, a TV should be able to process what is known as 10 bit or “deep” color. 10-bit color equals a signal containing more than one billion individual colors. In contrast, Blu-ray uses 8-bit color, which means about 16 million different colors. With 10-bit color, HDR TVs will be able to reproduce a very wide range of hues and reduce the obviously distinct transitions between shadows. Subtle shading helps a scene look much more realistic.
