Resolutions of Monitors and TV are easy to understand. Monitor/tv that's above "1280 x 720" has the capability of 720p. A monitor/tv that's above "1920x1080" is classed as Full HD and capable of 1080p.

iPhone(4/4S) has a resolution of 960x640. Capable of up to 1080p video playback.

How does a resolution of 960x640 screen of an iPhone able to playback upto 1080p when said above, 1080p capability needs atleast 1920x1080 in resolution?
Could someone please help me with this question, i have been looking everywhere for an answer and i cant seem to find one.

Thanks in advance

"Capable of up to 1080p video playback" just means that the iPhone's processor is able to process and play the 1080p video file but, since the iPhone's screen resolution is lower than that of the video, the video will only be displayed at 960x640 resolution.
