density independent pixel – Maximum dp/dip on android devices

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

Since dip stands for “device independent pixels”, is there a standard number of dip for every android device out there?

Example: if a hdpi device has X dp/width and Y dp/height, does a ldpi device have the same values? Namely X and Y?

If so, can anyone tell me the exact numbers?

Thanks in advance.

How to&Answers:

No, but this is how you roughly maps actual sizes and densities to generalized sizes and densities.

  • 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

No. Device manufacturers are welcome to build what they want.
