If the video does not support 18:9, the player cannot do much about that.

And what about HDR? It is unfortunate that being one of the most advance players it doesnt support HDR yet. Does anyone know if it will be support it soon in any future release?

HDR is device dependant. Based on some other reports, looks like s8 automatically adjust the dynamic range when HW decoder is used with a HDR video.

Upcoming version 1.9.0 will support the more wide aspect ratios. Kindly be patient till we finalize 1.9.0.

I have some HDR 10 videos and if I play them using samsung video player you can see that HDR is applied (you can see HDR legend) and the colors look wonderful but if I play them using MX player it doesnt matter what option on decoder I pick it doesnt apply HDR and the colors are all wash and not vivid when compare when running samsung video. So i guess MX player is still no compatible with HDR or with S8 either way I hope this will be added in a future release.

Was this ever solved? HDR for HDR capable devices?

This is due to the HDR implementation on the device itself. When you use HW decoder, It just uses media player API implementation on the android itself. If the media player on the device is implemented to handle HDR, you should get HDR effects on HW decoder. It looks like Samsung has implemented the HDR support in their app instead of media player level. Otherwise, both HW & Stock video player effects should be similar.

Our team will further investigate this for the future improvements on the HDR Playback. Thanks for your patience.
