Razer Phone First Phone To Deliver Netflix in HDR and Dolby Digital 5.1

The Razer Phone is already a compelling device but at CES 2018 Razer and Netflix announced a compelling new partnership for entertainment on the Razer mobile device.

At CES 2018 Razer Announced that Netflix will support HDR and Dolby Digital 5.1 on the Razer Phone. The Razer Phone is now the first smartphone to offer both advanced audio and video for Netflix.

“We engineered the Razer Phone to handle HDR video and sound like no other phone on the market,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We are incredibly excited to deliver Netflix entertainment on a smartphone like never before, enabling us to take full measure of the Razer Phone’s HDR10-enabled display and dual-firing, front-facing Dolby-optimized speakers and THX-certified headphone connectivity.”

While Dolby Digital 5.1 is normally reserved for high-end audio systems, Razer has built the Razer Phone with entertainment in mind and included dual-facing Dolby optimized speakers. And the HDR10 enabled display ensures that when watching Netflix on the go everything you watch will look bright, vibrant and true to life.

“The Razer Phone brings an incredible Netflix viewing experience to the smartphone,” says Anthony Park, vice president of engineering at Netflix. “We look forward to delivering this experience to our members around the world so they can watch their favorite entertainment on the go in the best possible quality.”

Existing Razer Phone customers will benefit from this partnership later this month with a free over-the-air update. The update will include a new Netflix App, a widget, and firmware improvements that will ensure the best possible Netflix Experience.
