samsung galaxy note 8.0 hands

Netflix is rolling out HDR support for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung's latest flagship phone.

HDR stands for high dynamic range. It's a technology that originated in photography, that allows for a greater difference between the light and dark parts of the picture. This gives the image greater depth, and makes films and TV shows look more lifelike.

Not all Netflix content is available in HDR, but more is becoming so.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was announced at the end of August. It's Samsung's latest flagship phone, and stands a whopping 6.4 inches big. When it's released on September 15th, it'll be the fourth phone to support Netflix in HDR.

The other three are the LG V30, and Sony's Xperia XZ1 and XZ2 Premium.

In order to watch in HDR, you'll need a compatible TV or phone, as well as Netflix's Premium subscription, which currently costs £8.99 a month.
