Whenever a major new Android device debuts, Netflix tends to add HD and HDR certification to it. Of course, this is not always the case, but Samsung is too big a name to ignore. Galaxy S10 phones can now play Netflix video in HDR, while lower-end Galaxy M devices and newer Snapdragon chipsets now support HD.

Here is the list of what has been added to the Netflix support page:

New HD:

  • Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, S10 +
  • Samsung M10 (SM-M105G, SM-M105M, SM-M105F, SM-M105Y)
  • Samsung M20 (SM-M205M, SM-M205F, SM-M205G, SM-M205FN)
  • Samsung M30 (SM-M305F, SM-M305FN, SM-M3050, SM-M305M)

HDR 10:

  • Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, S10 +

New chipsets that generally support HD:

  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 675
  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 710
  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 855

The Galaxy S10 series is the highlight here, gaining HD and HDR support. In addition, all devices with Snapdragon 675, 710, and 855 support Netflix HD directly, joining the previous-generation Snapdragons and two Kirin chips on the support list. Fun trick.
