I've got an urgent question. I've developed my Android UI for a 1080*1920 xxhdpi Google Pixel. (since we perceived the user base won't be using old phones) I've used the "Sharing for Developers" feature to share the prototype. Selected the "dp" unit option for the developer. Incidentally, the font size of the "Heading" i.e. "72 pt" is exactly the same in display pixel units, i.e. "72 dp".

Now, we urgently need to develop a mpdi version too. Would we need to scale the "72 pts" down to "24 pt" to achieve the "24 dp" on a 360*640 artboard? Would "24 pt" be same as "24 dp" in XD and for Android Studio? I've heard the Adobe XD uses a: " a virtual pixel for most of its measurements (including font size), which should be the same unit of measure as a CSS pixel, or most measurements in iOS."

I can develop the XD Android Default 360*640 UI Kit too, just need to clarify my concepts to avoid this issue in the future. Thanks in advance!
