Razer Phone will get HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 support for Netflix


If you’ve got a Razer Phone, your Netflix experience is about to get a lot better.

Razer has announced that Netflix will support HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 on the Razer Phone. These features will be included in an update that’ll roll out to existing Razer Phone owners later this month that’ll also include the Netflix app with widget and firmware improvements to the screen and sound.

Razer touts that its phone is the first mobile device to offer Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 with Netflix. This update will also help Netflix users to enjoy the expanded range of contrast and color that comes with HDR.

In order to view HDR content from Netflix, you’ll need to be signed up for the service’s premium plan. Priced at $13.99 per month, the Netflix premium plan includes HDR, Ultra HD, and support for streaming on up to four screens at once.
