Which canvas can I use to design for 4K (Samsung Flip blackboard) at 1x?

Create an artboard that is 1920 x 1080

 

When exporting:

  • Set Export for to Web
  • Set Designed at to 1x

 

You'll get a 1x and 2x file. If you don't want the 1x file, simply discard it.

Yes. 4K resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixels.

1920 x 2 = 3840

1080 x 2 = 2160
