It's extremely unlikely with a HDMI 1.4a input that it accepts anything more than 8-bit color.
This doesn't mean that it doesn't output 10-bit color, though that may be unlikely, yet it may offer variants in color output that do act as multipliers for color control that indeed can allow 'billions' of colors.
The concept of supporting 10-bit or 12-bit color is far more common these days than when the 1060 was released, and marketing speak should never be considered as 'real world'. To that end, Epson has recently been suing cheap imported models that claim 2,000+ lumens in brightness while only delivering 300 lumens.
Yes, advertising matters, but don't just read 'billions of colors' - read the line that says 10-bit input support (or 12-bit).
