What Are the Resolutions of 4:3 Aspect Ratio?

Any resolutions higher than 4:3 (1.3:1) are widescreen resolutions, like 16:9 (1.78:1). True, 16:9 plays the leading role nowadays for movie watching. And 4:3 is just a traditional TV display standard. But does that mean 4:3 is totally out of date? Not actually. Both GoPro Hero7 and DJI Osmo Action provide you with 2.7K 4:3 mode and 4K 4:3 mode. So what are the 4:3 resolutions?
