There are several density buckets available for use in your apps.

Screen Density in Dev Studio AlphaApp Platform

See below the Screen Density predefined in Alphatech Technology app builder and what screen types they apply to.

  • Screen type - Description
  • None - Resources for all densities. These are density-independent resources. The system does not scale resources tagged with this qualifier, regardless of the current screen's density.
  • Low Density - Resources for low-density (ldpi) screens (~120dpi).
  • Medium Density - Resources for medium-density (mdpi) screens (~160dpi). (This is the baseline density.)
  • High Density - Resources for high-density (hdpi) screens (~240dpi).
  • Extra High Density - Resources for extra-high-density (xhdpi) screens (~320dpi).
  • Extra Extra High Density - Resources for extra-extra-high-density (xxhdpi) screens (~480dpi).
  • Extra Extra Extra High Density - Resources for extra-extra-extra-high-density (xxxhdpi) uses (~640dpi).

It's important to test your app on multiple devices with different pixel densities so you can ensure your UI scales correctly. Testing on a physical device is easy but you can also use an Emulator if you don't have access to physical devices for all the different pixel densities.
