  • YouTube HDR Playback Support is Rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xperia XZ Premium

Until now. Several Redditors have now discovered that YouTube is slowly rolling out support for HDR video via its mobile app.

HDR videos look brigher and more colourful thanks to the higher range of information embedded in videos shot in HDR. With YouTube being one of the world's biggest content providers, it has also updated its mobile app to improve its users' viewing experience.

Russian and Japanese leaders "decisively condemn" N.Korean tests
In China, Putin spoke out strongly against the US plan to increase sanctions on North Korea, following its sixth nuclear test. President Donald Trump has spoken with the leaders of Britain and Australia about North Korea's latest nuclear test.

Some reports say YouTube extended HDR support to smartphones Friday, Sept. 8. This results in brighter, vivid, and more realistic images that are not available on smartphones without HDR support.

The Android smartphones for which the rollout has made for the Xperia XZ Premium, Google Pixel, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and the LG V30. More devices will join this list soon, enabling the display feature, but we don't think any budget phones have the ability to playback such visual overhead. However, in order to enjoy the YouTube HDR playback in the mobile devices and TVs, they should be HDR capable while the speed of your internet connection and the quality of the screen too should be good enough. However, they will expand support in more devices in the near future. Once more people adapt to HDR to the point where it becomes a mainstream standard, the number of content stands to increase.

Coming South Park game is harder for black characters
Originally announced in early 2014, Ubisoft's South Park: The Fractured but Whole is finally approaching its release in October. Characters become dark-skinned on the hardest end of the spectrum, a cosmetic effect meant as a bit of social satire.

The HDR Playback supports not only low-resolutions but also very high 2K (1440p) resolution at full 60FPS. Some latest smartphones have already incorporated the support for it.

HDR video is an interesting new type of media that has slowly started to creep its way into the smartphone industry.
