Razer Phone gets HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 in the Netflix app
- Razer and Netflix are teaming up to bring HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 to the Razer Phone.
- It will be the first phone on the market to support both of the standards.
- The enhancements will come by way of an OTA update later this month.
Razer’s debut phone hit the market back in November. The company may have designed the Razer Phone for gamers, but it’s entertainment junkies who may get the most from the device. The large 5.7-inch display and massive speakers make watching videos on the device a real treat. Now, thanks to a partnership with Netflix, that experience is getting even better.
The two companies are teaming up to bring HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 to the Razer Phone. Several phones on the market can display HDR content, but the Razer Phone will be first to do both HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 audio. There are also several devices on the market that support Dolby audio, but none of them support Dolby Digital Plus 5.1. You generally find 5.1 audio in home entertainment centers with a multi-speaker setup. But, because of the Dolby-optimized speakers on the front of the device, it can be accomplished on the Razer Phone.
The enhancements to the Netflix app will come by way of an OTA update later this month. That app will also come preloaded on all Razer Phones sold from here on out.
