Samsung announces Google Play and Vizio now support HDR10+

OnePlus, Oppo, Realme and Xiaomi handsets now support HDR10+

Samsung and Panasonic have reported that there are now 94 adopters of the HDR10+ high dynamic range format. One of the most notable adopters is Google Play for its TV and movie content. Additionally, Vizio is adding support for HDR10+ technology to its UHD TV lineup.

HDR10+ is Samsung’s high dynamic range technology that’s on par with Dolby Vision, but with a few key differences; Dolby Vision offers 12-bit colour, whereas HDR10+ features 10-bit colour.

Google Play Movies & TV now streams HDR10+ content from its UHD library. That said, Samsung hasn’t announced what specific titles will get the feature. There are now new HDR10+ UHD Blu-ray titles available such as, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and IT: Chapter Two. 

OnePlus, Oppo, Realme and Xiaomi will also support HDR10+ on their handsets, meaning that those with these devices will be able to consume content in HDR10+ and shoot videos in HDR10+. Samsung’s press release doesn’t mention whether HDR10+ will be coming to OnePlus’ or Xiaomi’s TV sets.

HDR10+ support is also now available on Onkyo and Pioneer AV Receivers for home theatre viewing.

Update 07/01/2020 4:31pm ET: A reference to Netflix supporting HDR 10+ has been removed from this story.
