Default [Q] Xperia M Screen

Okay, first off I don't have this device just yet. I'm getting it in a few weeks for Christmas. Anyway, back to the point. i was wondering what type of screen the device had, for example; MDPI or HDPI. I've never actually known how to identify them but I'm presuming it is something to do with the screen size. Could somebody please tell me which one it is?

But is it MDPI or HDPI? I've seen the specs loads online so I know the screen size.

Just do the maths.

The screen diagonally is approx. 4 inch, and is sqrt(854^2 + 480^2) pixels = approx. 980 px.
That means the screen is approx. 245 dpi.

So that is about 240 dpi => hdpi.
Current device: Xperia M (C1905) - MultiROM Xperia M

Past devices: Xperia Neo V, iPAQ 212

Thank you to the both of you.

@alvinhochun I have absolutely no clue where all the cut off points are for MDPI, HDPI etc just yet. I'm hoping to learn soon so that I can start trying to do a bit of development.
