Huawei Mate 20 Pro/P20 Pro Update: Added support for Netflix HD and HDR standards

According to foreign media phonearena report, recently Huawei quietly updated its two flagship mobile phone products, Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro, added support for Netflix HD and HDR standards.

With HD and HDR support, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro users will be able to view Netflix content at 720p or higher resolution instead of 540p.

While both phones have hardware that runs Netflix content in HD and HDR quality, they were originally only equipped with Widevine L3 support, which is the minimum standard for security. Widevine is a DRM standard that allows Google to authorize devices to deliver content at the highest quality.

The latest update brings higher security to the Widevine L1 support, and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro phones can better leverage Netflix’s HD and HDR content.

The update was launched in India earlier today, but it may expand to more regions in the next few days.
