QVGA - Quarter Video Graphics Array
Short for Quarter Video Graphics Array, and more commonly abbreviated as Quarter VGA, QVGA is the term used to describe computer displays that use 320x240 resolution (320 pixels horizontally by 240 pixels vertically) or 240x320 resolution if the display is taller than wide. This display is commonly used in smartphones, digital cameras, PDAs and other handheld computing devices. LCDdisplays using the QVGA specification will have full-color viewing capabilities, and some QVGA displays may also offer touch screen compatibility.
