Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldable devices officially support HD and HDR10 streaming on Netflix. The streaming giant has confirmed that the new foldables can play content in the highest quality and has added them to its compatibility list. The Galaxy A73 5G can also stream Netflix content in HDR10.
Along with these three, Netflix has added many other recently released Samsung smartphones to its compatibility list. The likes of Galaxy A04, Galaxy A04s, Galaxy A13, Galaxy A23, Galaxy A23 5G, Galaxy A33 5G, Galax A53 5G, Galaxy XCover 6 Pro, and several models from the Galaxy F and Galaxy M series have gained official support. However, these are limited to HD streaming. You can find the full list of smartphones and tablets that officially support HD and HDR10 content on Netflix here.
Please note that Netflix does not add anything or make any changes to these devices. The company simply assesses whether devices are capable of streaming HD or HDR10 content on the platform and adds them to its compatibility list accordingly. This gives prospective buyers an idea of what they’re getting in terms of streaming when they buy a new phone or tablet. Netflix regularly updates the list to add new devices. All of the aforementioned Samsung smartphones have been released in the past few months.
Of course, you must have a suitable Netflix plan to stream content in HD or HDR10. The likes of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 supporting HDR10 streaming doesn’t mean you can stream content in the highest quality without subscribing to a qualifying plan that offers Ultra HD streaming. You also need high-speed Internet, and Netflix recommends a minimum speed of 15 megabits per second. Last but not least, you need to set the streaming quality to High in the Netflix app settings. However, this is recommended only if you have an unlimited data plan.
