The updated Sony PS5 console received support for 4K120 HDR in conjunction with Samsung TVs

The coveted 4K120 HDR mode has become available to owners of compatible Samsung TVs after installing a fresh update from Sony PS5. Until now, such a TV connected to a PS5 console required a choice of 4K120 SDR or 4K60 HDR. And this was all the more frustrating, since no such problems were observed with the same Xbox X series console.

Note that it was the mode of operation with Sony PS5 with 4K resolution at 120 Hz with HDR that was initially a stumbling block for many products. Corresponding compatibility updates had to be issued for LG TVs and even for Sony’s own models.

4K120 HDR now works on Samsung too, with enthusiasts and experts alike having tested it in real-world games. So far, there are not so many games in 4K120 HDR, the most famous among them are Borderlands 3, Call Of Duty: Cold War, Dirt 5, Fortnite and Devil May Cry V. Otherwise, the Sony PS5 will provide internal upscaling up to 4K120 with HDR – again however, this would require full compliance with HDMI 2.1 on the TV.
