Netflix in HDR now available on Sony Xperia XZ3, XZ2 Premium and LG G7 One
Three new smartphones will be able to take full advantage of Netflix’s HDR content. The service has added the LG G7 One, Sony Xperia XZ3 and Xperia XZ2 Premium to its list of compatible devices.
Netflix has once again added more smartphones to its list of HDR-enabled devices, allowing their owners to watch High Dynamic Range content on mobile phones. The American platform – which has 137 million subscribers worldwide – took its time to deploy this support. This was largely due to the limited number of HDR-compatible devices on the market, as noted by SlashGear. In recent months, the list has grown and the site has identified three new Android smartphones on the Netflix portal.
The LG G7 One Sony Xperia XZ3 and Xperia XZ2 Premium join the list of HDR-compatible devices. As a reminder, the LG G6 was the first to offer HDR content, quickly joined by the Xperia XZ Premium or Razer Phone. In this list, there are also Huawei smartphones such as the Mate 10 Pro or P20, Honor 10 and other LG models (V30/V35). The world leader Samsung is not to be outdone with its Galaxy S9, Note 8/9 and Galaxy Tab S3/S4 tablets. Note that iOS users are also affected, with the ability to view HDR content on iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X and iPad Pro (2nd generation).
In addition to having a compatible device, you also need a Netflix 4 screen package to enjoy HDR content. A stable connection speed of at least 25 megabits per second is also recommended by the platform. The video-on-demand service currently offers three packages and tested an Ultra package during the summer, charging a high price for access to HDR.
