First of all, the question is what is this aspect ratio? Let me tell you that the aspect ratio is the width of any screen and Reveals the ratio of height. It is mainly given as W:H Where W stands for width i.e. width and H represent the ratio of the height in the height. If the screen has a screen aspect ratio of 16:9. This means that the width of the phone is 16 equal parts, while the height or picture is divided into 9 equal parts. The horizontal bar that is used to divide the screen into this ratio is called letterboxes.
Similarly, if the aspect ratio of the screen is 18:9, then the width of the width picture and the height 18 ratios are divided into 9 equal parts.
