So what really makes 4K so much more superior?
To better understand how 4K translates into a clearer picture, the matter of pixels needs a little bit of explanation. Essentially, an image being displayed is comprised of numerous, small squares called pixels. When an image has a low pixel resolution and is then displayed on a larger device, the image is stretched, which means that the missing spaces in-between the pixels are filled with like-colors to try to compensate. This results in a fuzzy, unclear image. So with that in mind, when it comes to viewing images, the larger number of pixels the better. When your display device has a resolution with a higher number of pixels that means you’re getting a clearer, more vibrant and much more realistic image being displayed. Well, 4K resolution refers to a display device that has 3840 pixels horizontally and 2160 pixels vertically. As you can see in the comparison chart provided below, that is nearly four times as high of definition as the commonly known HDTV (1080p).
