Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-values] clarify that most (all?) high-dpi devices anchor on pixel, rather than physical, unit

Taking just one OS as an example, does Android provide exact measurement in physical units of the screen as an API/value that can be queried by native apps? as far as I'm aware, a native app can query "Screen Size", but the return values from the OS are only "small, normal, large, and extra-large".

Assume now a browser gets downloaded from Google Play and installed (so it's not preinstalled by the manufacturer/OEM) . How can the browser know what the actual physical dimension of the screen of that particular device is?
