Xbox One X

When it comes to the two major HDR standards — the open-source HDR 10, and the licensed (and thus expensive) Dolby Vision — one thing is clear. The latter is better, and you want it.

And now it's coming to Xbox One S and Xbox One X as part of the System Update 1810 Preview.

From Xbox Wire (via Windows Central):

Xbox is committed to bringing rich entertainment options to our fans. Today we are excited to announce our latest entertainment option, Dolby Vision video streaming support across Xbox One S and Xbox One X! Dolby Vision enables select TVs to take HDR up a notch with scene-by-scene precision and accuracy versus standard HDR which uses one setting for the entire movie/show you are watching. If you have a TV that supports the latest version of Dolby Vision and a Premium Netflix subscription jump in and experience Dolby Vision for yourself in the coming weeks!

You'll of course need an Dolby Vision-ready TV to take advantage of the improved visuals, as well as HDMI 2.0 cables and enough bandwidth and then supported source material, but after all that HDR is as simple as flipping a switch. Hopefully.
