Smartphones that are listed as YouTube Signature Devices can provide users with the best-in-class YouTube experience, thanks to their combination of video performance, reliability, and next-gen technologies. To qualify as a "Signature Device", a phone must have support for high dynamic range, 360° video, high frame rates, 4K decoding, reliable DRM performance, and hardware VP9 profile 2 decoding. YouTube had launched the Signature Devices program in 2018, and it now has a total of 48 certified devices. Samsung's latest Galaxy S20 series phones, however, have not been added to the list yet.
Weirdly, the Find X2, which uses the same QHD+ 120Hz AMOLED panel as the Find X2 Pro, has also not been added to the YouTube Signature Device list. Both the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro are slated to be launched in the UK and several other markets across the globe in the coming months. The Find X2 will be available in the EU for €999, while the Find X2 Pro will retail at €1,199 in the old continent.
