Samsung's new Galaxy Note 8 smartphone supports Netflix HDR streaming, so if you want to get your mobile HDR experience on, there's another flagship smartphone to choose from.




Netflix recently updated their FAQ page, with HDR-capable smartphones like the LG V30 and Sony Xperia XZ already on the list along with LG's G6 handset. The updated FAQ adds Samsung's new Galaxy Note 8 and Sony Xperia XZ1 smartphones, both launching in the last two weeks.


The beautiful 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy Note 8 rocks a native resolution of 2960 x 1440, so Netflix HDR content should well and truly shine on the HDR-capable display. You'll need to have the 4-screen premium/4K account with Netflix to get that HDR goodness, but I'd dare say it's worth the extra couple of bucks every month.
