The Galaxy S21 series was unveiled a couple of weeks ago during the Galaxy Unpacked 2021 virtual event, and the new phones are going on sale worldwide starting today. Now, Samsung is making sure that the phones are fully ready out of the box for its customers.

Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones—Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra—have now received HDR certification from Netflix. This means users can enjoy watching their favorite movies and TV shows in HD resolution and HDR10 profile for an immersive experience. However, users need to be subscribed to Netflix’s Premium plan, which costs $18 per month, to watch HDR videos.

The Galaxy S21 has a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display, while the Galaxy S21+ sports a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display. Both phones feature Full HD+ resolution, HDR10+ certification, up to 1,300 nits peak brightness, and up to 120Hz variable refresh rate. The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a 6.8-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with QHD+ resolution, HDR10+, up to 1,500 nits peak brightness, and up to 120Hz variable refresh rate.
