LG G6 is first smartphone with Dolby Vision & HDR10
Netflix and Amazon HDR streaming & HDR10 support also confirmed
Dolby Laboratories have announced that the upcoming LG G6 will be the first smartphone to support Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) technology.
The announcement was made at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017 and, in addition, it was also confirmed that the G6 will become the first mobile device to support HDR streaming from both Netflix and Amazon video plus, HDR support isn't limited to Dolby Vision, the phone is also HDR10 capable.
Dolby Vision on such a small screen might seem like a questionable deployment of the technology but it certainly sets a new standard for the mobile viewing experience. Combined with the LG G6’s expansive 5.7-inch FullVision display, Dolby Vision should offer more life-like images with brighter highlights and the smartphone also ships with support for Dolby Audio too.
“Through our expanded collaboration with LG, Amazon, and Netflix, consumers can watch exciting content on their smartphone that looks and sounds spectacular,” said Giles Baker, SVP, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories.
“In partnership with Dolby Laboratories, we have incorporated the best HDR technologies in the business into a smartphone,” said Hong-joo Kim, Vice President and Head of product planning at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
Amazon Prime Video and Netflix already both support Dolby Vision via Smart TVs, and with this collaboration, this technology will be coming to the mobile platform.
