Mobile phone technology is constantly evolving. What qualified as a smartphone 4 years ago may look like a museum piece now. Our customers rely on WURFL device detection to curate and define the categories of devices. For this reason, we regularly update our definition of what qualifies as a smartphone.
Smartphone Definition Update – 2023
In the upcoming version of the WURFL API (version 22.214.171.124), we have updated our definition for a smartphone
The key parameters that are changing are:
- Minimum OS version requirements will increase to iOS 12, Android 8.0
- Minimum Horizontal Resolution requirement remains 540 pixels
These changes impact less than 3% of smartphones that we identified and analyzed during the first quarter of 2023.
