Is it possible in Sentinel hub products to know the resolution of the product and whether the SAR was right or left looking at the scene?

I know that it's possible to know if the SAR was operating in a descending or ascending mode from the /annotation/*.xml files (from the `...' value), but I couldn't find the aforementioned parameters inside those files!

The look direction of the C-SAR instrument is right.

The resolution as well as the pixel spacing depends on the product and the acquisition mode. They can range from 1.7m x 4.3 for Level 1 SLC SM to 52m by 51m for Level 1 GRD WV. ESA provides a list of all resolutions and pixel spacings for Sentinel-1 products.
