Dimensity 1200, Unisoc also made on the list

Netflix has a demanding rule for qualifying to play in HD, HDR, and supported chipsets. The chips from HiSilicon, MediaTek, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Unisoc made it on the list, but surprisingly, Netflix announced official support for Exynos 2200.

Exynos 2200 is the new AMD GPU-powered SoC that will most likely find its way to the Samsung Galaxy S22 phones in Europe. The chipset has been officially revealed, but it didn’t launch in phones.

There was a glimpse of hope that Samsung would start using Qualcomm Snapdragon in Europe, but this dream was shattered by the recent leaks. We have to give Exynos 2200 the benefit of the doubt as the AMD Raytracing supported GPU might do well if they manage to tame the power of the modern GPU.

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked has been scheduled for February 9, 16.00 CET (15.00 BST, 7 AM PST). The phones shipped in Europe are expected to use Exynos 2200, while the international version that will hit most Asia and the US will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powered chips.

Many of our colleagues missed a surprising thing: Snapdragon 888, 888+ and the most recent Snapdragon 8 Gen1 are absent from the officially supported list. It comes as a surprise as obviously someone at Netflix didn’t do his / hers job well. It is hard to believe that Netflix doesn’t officially support these chips as we ended up using them and offer HDR and HD.   

MediaTek Dimensity 1200 made it on the list among numerous previous chips from the house of Taiwan manufacturer. A new game in town mainstream level Unisoc also officially listed. Unisoc T606  comes with two Cortex A75 at 1.6GHz and six Cortex A55 at 1.6GHz, while Unisoc T618, the highest spec SoC on the list, uses two Cortex A75 at 2GHz and six Cortex A55 at 2GHz.

Three other Unisoc SoCs, T610, 612, and 616, also a pack of two Cortex A75 and six A55 at lower clocks than 2 GHz, made it to an officially supported chipset. The common theme for the Unisoc T6xx series named above is the A75 + A55 combination and obviously a similar Mali GPU. All except T606 share the ARM Mali G57 GPU that lets it quality for official support by Netflix.
