Netflix offers 4K and HDR streaming on compatible devices for users subscribed to its top-tier plan, which is priced at Rs. 800 per month in India. Alongside, two posters of the Netflix show Sacred Games 2 were shot on the OnePlus 7 Pro, as was a behind-the-scenes video.

Netflix already supports HDR playback on a variety of devices, including the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, and Huawei Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro. The latest announcement confirms that the OnePlus 7 Pro will also be getting support for HDR. The OnePlus 7 Pro has already been confirmed to be coming with an HDR10+ certified display, along with an A+ rating from DisplayMate.
