Samsung and LG impressed many consumers by launching flagship phones that have advanced display panels. However, despite the sophisticated technologies the G6, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have, they are still lacking in terms of support for Ultra HD content streaming on Netflix.

On Wednesday, Netflix reps released the list of devices that are capable of streaming the video-on-demand and media streaming company’s UHD content, and sadly the flagship devices from the South Korea giants are not included, PhoneArena has learned. The G6 has a 5.7-inch 1440 x 2880 IPS LCD screen with Dolby Vision and HDR10, while the Samsung flagship phones have 1440 x 2960 displays with mobile HDR, so it doesn’t make sense that the trio of handsets will not be able to display Ultra HD content.

Thankfully, this inadequacy will only be felt for a certain period of time following the official release of the devices. Netflix reps said the company is already working on a way for mobile UHD streaming to function on devices with HDR capabilities. Given the advanced display technologies the LG G6 and the Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones have, it’s very likely for them to gain support for Ultra HD streaming in the near future.

Regardless of the missing support for Netflix’s HDR content, Android Headlines says the sales of the new flagship handsets are expected to soar. The LG G6 is already hitting the U.S. market this Friday, while the Galaxy S8 and the larger Galaxy S8+ are slated to arrive on April 21. All three Android devices have very minimal bezels and large screen-to-body ratios.

Meanwhile, Netflix has just begun rolling out its new thumbs up and down rating system for its movies and shows. The Los Gatos, California-headquartered company said that the idea behind replacing the five-star rating with the new thumbs rating system is for it to give more relevant content recommendations to its subscribers. The new system uses algorithms, so the app would no longer present movies and shows and any related content that have received a thumbs down from the users on the homepage.
