Dolby Laboratories and LG Electronics (LG), have announced that the LG G6 smartphone will be the first mobile phone to support Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) technology. Additionally, Netflix and Amazon will be the first streaming services to deliver content in Dolby Vision to mobile devices around the world.
Dolby Vision sets a new standard for the mobile viewing experience and it is already transforming the viewing experience in both cinemas and on TVs. The LG G6 brings that experience to smartphones.
Combined with the LG G6’s expansive 5.7-inch FullVision display, Dolby Vision offers more life-like images with brighter highlights and the smartphone also comes with Dolby Audio.
“Through our expanded collaboration with LG, Amazon, and Netflix, consumers can watch exciting content on their smartphone that looks and sounds spectacular,” said Giles Baker, SVP, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories.
“In partnership with Dolby Laboratories, we have incorporated the best HDR technologies in the business into a smartphone,” said Hong-joo Kim, Vice President and Head of product planning at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
Amazon Prime Video already supports Dolby Vision on TVs, and with this collaboration, this technology will be coming to the mobile platform.
