Samsung has unleashed a bunch of new devices on the tech world in recent weeks. The Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip are in the hands of users around the world. One of the things people love to do on phones with big, beautiful displays is watch Netflix.

In order to support playing Netflix content in HD, a device needs to not only be certified for the Widevine DRM’s L1 certification level but also must pass Netflix’s own internal testing. The same DRM certification requirements and testing are expected for Netflix HDR playback support, but with the obviously added requirement of having an HDR display. Once a device passes one or both tests, Netflix updates its list of HD and HDR playback supported devices with the newly supported devices. Today, the company has updated these lists to include the latest Samsung Galaxy phones and some older Samsung devices. You’ll notice a few other devices on the list, such as the already-announced but yet-to-launch TCL 10 Pro and Xperia 1 II. Several devices on the list have been out for a while and surely had this support already if you just opened the Netflix app. Expand the lists below to see all the newly added devices.
