We already have HDR10, that is the main standard that the TV supports.
Perhaps you meant HDR10Plus? If so, it's looking very unlikely. But this isn't a problem since there is zero HDR10Plus content. There was one press release saying that Amazon had some HDR10Plus content, but so far not one person who owns the allegedly supported models (2017 and later) has found HDR10Plus labelled content on Amazon.
As far as we know, no-one has been able to demonstrate that ANY of the Amazon Prime Video streams are actually HDR10+ yet, anywhere in the world. Amazon themselves say this on the subject:
Prime Video Title Availability
HDR Prime Video titles are offered in two (sic - should be 3
- HDR (sic - should be "HDR10")*- HDR titles feature an "HDR" label as well as HDR purchase and viewing options in the video details.
- HDR10+*- Select UHD Samsung TVs (2017 and later models) can stream Prime Video content In the HDR10+ format. If your television is compatible, and the Prime Video title supports it, an "HDR10+" label appears instead of the normal "HDR" label in the video details.
- Dolby Vision*– Certain HDR titles feature Dolby Vision, which is the Dolby Labs HDR standard. For these titles, a "Dolby Vision" icon shows in the video details instead of an "HDR" label.
So, I'm still waiting for one
person to post one screenshot showing the HDR10+ logo proudly displayed in the Amazon Prime Video app for one HDR title. Until I see that, as far as I'm concerned all the people with Samsung 2017 TVs who think
they are getting HDR10+ are just seeing a placebo effect. After all, if the streams really were HDR10+, Amazon would be shouting it from the rooftops on Amazon wouldn't they? Since they are the first and only provider of this new format? They wouldn't be burying all knowledge of which streams were in which format, or mislabelling them all, that would be ludicrous...
TL;DR - even if you have a Samsung 2017 TV, if it's not displaying the HDR10+ logo on the page on Amazon where you press play and next to where it says "subtitles" and "5.1" etc - it's not going to be a HDR10+ stream.
