On the P52, I currently have:
[ +0.000009] max: (3045,1731) drivers/input/mouse/elan_i2c_core.c:428
[ +0.000003] traces: (24,14) drivers/input/mouse/elan_i2c_core.c:429

-> with the computation done in the kernel:
width_ratio: 126
height_ratio: 123

For my average finger, the reported traces are between 4 and 6:
With the ETP_FWIDTH_REDUCE:
Major between 144 to 216
Minor between 132 to 198

Without:
Major between 504 to 756
Minor between 492 to 738

So a rough augmentation of 350%

For the Synaptics devices (over SMBus), they send the raw value of the
traces, so you will get a major/minor between 2 to 5. Max on these
axes is 15, so we should get the same percentage of value comparing to
the range.
Which is why libinput has a database of which device reports which
pressure/major/minor ranges as otherwise the values are just
impossible to understand.

Cheers,
Benjamin

And given that we might have 2 different resolutions, we would need to do some computation in the kernel to ensure the data is correct with respect to the resolution.
