Windows 10 Mobile Edition gets XGA & WSVGA resolution support with Creators Update

Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft has updated the “Minimum Hardware Requirements” Documentation with changes brought by Windows 10 Version 1703 aka Creators Update. There are not many changes to talk about when it comes to Mobile and Desktop. There is no mention yet of Snapdragon 835 support for either Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile.

Coming to Windows 10 Desktop edition, we see mention of “requirement adjustment” for display with . So, while Anniversary update brought 7-inch display support for Laptops, Tablets and 2-in-1s; with Creators update it seems that this 7-icnh display support has been made standard across all devices running Windows 10 Desktop. Here is the explanation provided in updated MSDN documentation.

Windows 10 for desktop editions supports a minimum display resolution of SVGA (800 x 600) with a depth of 32 bits on each output simultaneously, and a minimum diagonal display size of 7-inches or larger. Tablets, 2-in-1s, and laptops that run Windows 10 for desktop editions must include a display that meets the minimum requirements listed earlier. A display is optional for desktop PC’s that run Windows 10 for desktop editions.

Coming to Windows 10 Mobile Edition, Creators Update brings support for XGA and WSVGA display resolutions. The WXGA resolution has also been adjusted to support up to 9″ display in size. Both XGA and WSVGA resolutions support up to 9-inch displays too.
