More pixels are better, and we will need them for ultra high resolution displays of the future. Displaying 24 MP images on 132 MP display (16K) will be kind of strange.

Huh? I see low resolution images on high resolution screens all of the time.

Maybe I should have written "want", instead of "need".

I'm sure many people view low resolution images and video on 4K or greater resolution displays, but they don't look as good as higher resolution images. People always want better, and more, so it's only natural the companies will deliver it.

Agreed, the industry will push forward... but we are always dealing with legacy technology and photos will be the same.
