Netflix adds HD, HDR10 support to unannounced Pixel 4 and other Android phones
Netflix updated its support page today (via Android Police) to add some new Android phones to its list of models that support the streamer's HD and HDR10 content. Among the new devices are the unannounced Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The big story here normally would have been the news that Netflix had included these two handsets on the lists proving that they do exist. However, Google itself has all but officially introduced the phones by sharing a photo of the Pixel 4, releasing a video of the Motion Sense/Face unlock features and publishing information about the new flagships in its blog.
ROG Phone II and the Samsung Galaxy Fold from its list of phones that support its HD and HDR10 streams. All of these phones certainly will end up back on the list; they were removed for now because Netflix jumped the gun.UPDATE: Netflix has removed the Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Asus
