LG G6 is First Phone Supporting Netflix HDR Streaming
The LG G6 has a phenomenal HDR-capable screen, but much like the Galaxy Tab S3, that screen doesn’t do much if you can’t find any HDR content to actually watch on it. Here at HDTVTest, we’ve been enamoured by the impact of HDR, and we’re placing more emphasis on HDR performance on our TV reviews this year. Even more, including Netflix, UltraFlix, Google Play Movies, Amazon Instant Video, and others offer 4K Ultra HD with HDR10. TCL has yet to release prices for all P Series models, but announced Thursday that the 55-inch model will be available for around $600 on Amazon.com later this month as part of a limited-time introductory offer.
Roku TVs are starting to get a little more premium.
When the LG G6 was announced LG made specific mention and quite a bit of fanfare over it’s support of Dolby Vision. In addition, the C-Series offers a super slim, elegant design, while the P-Series offers HDR Contrast Control Zones, allowing contrast to be individually optimized across 72 zones to achieve deeper blacks and brighter whites. Will they be able to compete with the very best from other companies?
There are some TV’s that support Dolby Vision but the LG G6 was the first mobile device to support it.
The series also features the aforementioned TCL NBP Photon technology to cover most of the DCI-P3 color space. Like the P-Series, the line supports Dolby Vision and features the popular Roku OS.
The series includes TCL’s HDR Dynamic Contrast technology, which is said to display content with “optimized brightness for each scene”.
Already one of the world’s best-selling consumer electronics brands, TCL is now the fastest-growing TV brand in North America. The C-Series tops out at a 75-inch size while the P-Series is 65-inches on the largest end of the spectrum.
