As you’d expect, a series of Samsung device including the Galaxy S20 series, have now gained Netflix HD and HDR10 certification.

The fact that Samsung makes arguably the best displays on the market, this is no real surprise. But as we consume more and more media on our smartphones, quality and consistency are no doubt a core selling point for subscription services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Netflix isn’t always the fastest to update its own HD and HDR10-compatibility pages, but the recently released S20 series is now confirmed as supporting HDR10 content from the streaming platform.

According to the updated list (via Android Police), the following Samsung devices all now officially — as most will have already supported the feature — support HDR10 video playback on Netflix:
