Mobile Phones & Devices That Support HDR

mobile-hdr-premium-logoHDR (High Dynamic Range) is a camera feature on mobile phones that has been available for quite some time now, but it wasn’t until recently that phones started to support HDR from video streams. The two types of HDR technology (found in still images and video) are quite different, but have similar goals in improving the color range and contrast in images. HDR in video is specified through either HDR10 (open standard) and Dolby Vision (proprietary), but many devices and TVs have been developed to display both.

The Mobile HDR standard, released by the Ultra HD Alliance early 2017, ensures the a standard for HDR on mobile devices. Those standards include 10-bit color depth on displays (see the full Mobile HDR Premium specs). Here’s a list of initial mobile phones and devices that support HDR content. Newer models will typically continue support of HDR.
