After leaks have shown virtually everything the Pixel 4 has to offer, Netflix doesn’t seem to care if someone spots the yet-to-be-unveiled phone on its website. The company has updated its lists of devices supporting HD and HDR10 playback to include a number of new flagships like the Samsung Galaxy Note10, Fold, and Tab S6, plus the Asus ROG Phone II – among them, you’ll also find the unreleased Pixel 4 and 4 XL.
Google already confirmed the Pixel 4 back in June, so it’s not like its existence is up for debate. Still, you don’t often see unannounced devices in another company’s support documents, and it’s great to know that Google’s upcoming flagship will definitely be able to stream Netflix content in the highest possible quality. The Pixel 2 and 3 only received official HD support a while after going on sale, so it wasn’t certain whether their successor would get it right away. Other new devices on the list have also only been included after their release date, with the exception of the Galaxy Fold, but that would have been available by now had it not been for the delay while they fixed the display issues.
Here are all the new devices that will support HD Netflix:
- Amazon Fire HD 8″ (2017, 2018)
- Amazon Fire HD 10″ (2017, 2019)
- Asus MeMO Pad 7
- Huawei Honor Tablet 5 (AL00HN)
- Lenovo Yoga Tab 3
- Samsung Galaxy Feel (SC-04J)
Samsung Galaxy Fold
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
- Samsung Tab Active 2
Without further specifying which exactly, Netflix has additionally added HD playback to any phone or tablet running on a Snapdragon 665.
The following devices now support HDR10 as well as HD playback:
Asus ROG Phone II
- Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL
Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL
- LG G6
- Samsung Galaxy Note10
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
- Sony Xperia 1
- Xiaomi Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro
- Xiaomi Redmi K20 and K20 Pro
Make sure you’re using the latest version of Netflix and the latest firmware if HDR or HD support is not showing up on one of the newly added devices for you just yet. You can update the app via the Play Store and check for new OS releases in your phone or tablet’s settings.
Pixel 4 and others removed
Pixel 4 and 4 XL, Samsung Galaxy Fold, and ROG Phone II have been removed on the website. It’s likely that these devices will still support Netflix’ high-quality streaming – the company probably just published the information too early. We’ve reflected these changes by crossing out the corresponding entries in the lists above.
