A quick note today on Android screen sizes and screen densities. According to the Supporting Multiple Screens document on the Android website, Android screens are broken down into a set of four generalized sizes: small, normal, large, and xlarge. Their sizes in “dp” units are:
- xlarge screens are at least 960dp x 720dp
- large screens are at least 640dp x 480dp
- normal screens are at least 470dp x 320dp
- small screens are at least 426dp x 320dp
I’ll write more about Android screen sizes, dp units, resource file directory names, etc., in future tutorials, but I needed these dimensions today, so I thought I'd make this information a little easier to find. Again, see the Supporting Multiple Screens document for much more information.
