“A single picture element (a ‘pixel’) of an LCD screen is actually composed of three ‘sub-pixels’: one red, one green, and one blue (R-G-B). Taken together this sub-pixel triplet makes up what we’ve traditionally thought of as a single pixel… So: This means that if we were to treat the actual sub-pixels individually — ignoring their differing colors for the moment — we would have three times the horizontal resolution from our existing LCD display panels!”
