WVGA or Wide VGA or is a common display resolution seen in netbooks and even some smartphones.
The term comes from Video Graphics Array (VGA), which was a standard set by IBM long ago and specifies a 640 x 480 pixel display.
WVGA is, as the name implies, wider at 800 x 480 pixels, making for a letterbox format display. It can also refer to similar resolutions such as 848×480 or 854×480.
WVGA is much smaller than the resolutions seen on modern desktop or laptop systems, which are more likely to be 1280 x 1024, 1440 x 960 or 1600 x 1200.
