use Automattic\Jetpack\Device_Detection;

$is_dumbphone = Device_Detection::is_phone() && ! Device_Detection::is_smartphone();

Detect a tablet.

use Automattic\Jetpack\Device_Detection;

$is_tablet = Device_Detection::is_tablet();

Detect a desktop device.

use Automattic\Jetpack\Device_Detection;

$is_desktop = Device_Detection::is_desktop();

Detect any handheld device.
