TV screens, computer monitors, tablets, and phone screens are labeled HD based off of how many total pixels there are on the screen itself, not the quantity of pixels per inch. This means that larger screens have larger pixels and it is necessary for one to sit farther away in order for the eye to not recognize them.
The eye can no longer recognize a pixel when the screen has a 300 pixel per inch ratio at a distance one foot away from the eye. In order to retain a clear image at a shorter distance, the pixel per inch ratio must increase. Conversely if the eye is further away from the screen, the pixel per inch ratio can decrease and maintain a sharp image.
4K (Ultra HD) is the newest form of high definition television. Each screen has 4096 x 2160 pixels.

720 (HDTV) is the oldest form of HD. A 720p screen has 1280 x 720 pixels.
