The media-streaming giant latest regular update to its HDR whitelist accidentally leaked Google’s imminent new phones before being removed, not that we don’t know a lot already, alongside other permanent additions.
We already know pretty much everything about Google‘s imminent new phones – we even have their camera app publicly available and working already – but Netflix has just accidentally prematurely added the Pixel 4 and 4 XL to the whitelist of HDR and HD-enabled devices, alongside a swathe of other Android devices including the year-old Pixel 3 and 3 XL, at long last.
Netflix has since removed the two imminent Pixels, Asus ROG Phone 2, and Galaxy Fold from their whitelists, presumably due to the information, for whatever reason in the cases of the non-Pixels, being confidential for now.
The full list of newly-added HD, but not HDR-enabled devices is as follows plus any Snapdragon 665-touting phone, with italics indicating those removed:
- Amazon Fire HD Tablet 8inch (2017 & 2018)
- Amazon Fire HD Tablet 10inch (2017 & 2019)
- Asus MeMO Pad 7
- Huawei Honor Tablet 5
- Lenovo Yoga Tab 3
- Samsung Galaxy Feel
- Samsung Galaxy Fold
- Samsung Tab Active 2
And the newly-added HD and HDR-enabled devices, with those removed again italicised, is:
The latest whitelist is available in the latest update.
