YouTube begins certifying 'Signature Devices' with the best YouTube viewing experience

"2019 Signature Devices are built with hardware VP9 profile 2 decoding, an advanced video codec technology". YouTube's new program was silently launched around the same time as the flagship Note 9 was announced.

HDR: With support for High Dynamic Range (HDR), you'll see videos that are richer in detail, with true-to-life colors.

The YouTube team claims that every device goes under extensive testing and it's working closely with the OEMs to provide the best possible performance and quality when streaming YouTube videos.

So if your phone is on the list, this means your handset supports HDR, fast video load times, and "immersive 360-degree videos". These phones are said to deliver the best experience and are termed as Signature Devices.

Earlier today, Samsung stated that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is a YouTube Signature Device at the Unpacked event. However, there is no model of the iPhone part of the list, not even the iPhone X which features one of the best displays on a smartphone. In fact, unlike numerous other devices recommended by YouTube, the iPhone X also features a stereo speaker setup.

Just in case you were wondering, these are the phones that have the honor of being designated a Signature Device. Due to this reason the device is not capable of playing 4K videos in Safari.

Next generation video codecs: Watch high resolution videos on YouTube while using up to 30% less bandwidth. This is all for now, folks. Let us know in the comments section below.
