Samsung just launched its Galaxy S10 family of devices last week, and Netflix has taken note of that.

The firm uploaded its support page for Android devices  to note the following:

New HD:
Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+
Samsung M10 (SM-M105G, SM-M105M, SM-M105F, SM-M105Y)
Samsung M20 (SM-M205M, SM-M205F, SM-M205G, SM-M205FN)
Samsung M30 (SM-M305F, SM-M305FN, SM-M3050, SM-M305M)
HDR 10:
Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+
New generally HD-supporting chipsets:
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 675
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 710
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855

With HDR 10 on Netflix, users will be able to take full advantage of the dynamic range of the Galaxy S10’s display. In other words, you can watch Umbrella Academy or Altered Carbon Season 2 in prettier colours.

For the Galaxy M Series, there’s no HDR support but Netflix did hand out HD support as a nice consolation prize.

While Netflix normally supports the iPhone with all its best features at launch, its Android support is a bit more hit or miss. Of course, Samsung being Samsung means it was always going to be a higher priority than others.
