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.
