Android Emulator Resolution Configuration Merged

Please include the ability to set different resolution sizes for Android emulator. Our tests expect more realistic screen resolutions. Saucelabs' Generic Android Emulator only has a 4" size with 480x800 resolution configuration, as can be seen here https://wiki.saucelabs.com/display/DOCS/Supported+Android+Emulators. Most real-world devices now have far larger screen sizes and resolutions. At minimum, if Saucelabs does not/will not support including the ability to configure resolution size for Android emulators, they should at least include another configuration with larger screen sizes (~5") and screen resolutions (~1080x1920).

    Our emulators are currently constrained to their resolutions due to not having GPU support on the servers they are hosted on. We are actively looking into ways to migrate our emulators to infrastructure that can support higher resolutions. I do not yet have a timeframe for you as we are investigating several approaches.
