We are beta testing high resolution (440 - 575 ppi) phones and tablets from Samsung and Google. These new emulators allow users to test Responsive Layouts on multiple screen resolutions and sizes. Extra-extra-high-density devices account for 22% of all Android devices.

To test on one of the above emulators, please set the deviceName Desired Capability to the appropriate value. For better performance, it is recommended to also set the automationName Desired Capability to "uiautomator2". Below is an example in Python to test on a Samsung Galaxy S8 emulator. Please refer to the Platform Configurator for Device Names of all the emulators.

 

caps['deviceName'] = "Samsung Galaxy S8 GoogleAPI Emulator"
caps['automationName'] = "uiautomator2"

We would appreciate your observations, as these emulators are in beta testing. Please reach out to me at cy@saucelabs.com with any feedback or questions.
