According to a few users of the LG G3, the YouTube app now shows the option to stream content in 1440p, which is the native display resolution on the smartphone. Although Google is yet to confirm this, it is possible that the app has received support to stream 2K content whenever the device supports it.
As of now, users were only able to stream YouTube content in up to 1080p using their smartphones or tablets, but it’s good to see that support for 2K videos is being added as well. We could have plenty of 2K display smartphones launching in the coming months, so this is a logical move from Google. The desktop version of YouTube already has the option to stream content in 2K as well as 4K resolutions, but this is the first time Google is adding support for 2K video streaming on mobile devices as well.
