I believe we can get better image by having lower pixel density.

You got that backwards. Generally higher density gives a better image.

But as with everything, not just photography, it is the whole system that matters not just one factor. We are limited by the weakest link. There is no benefit to go to a higher resolution sensor if for example the lens is not up to the task.

Looking ahead there is. Deconvolution software is constantly improving, and so long as there are plenty of pixels to work with, it may well be possible to correct the lens aberrations in an image, in a few years' time.

Even without deconvolution, the statement was untrue anyway.
