Sure, Telegram desktop users with hdpi+ screens would appreciate it, but Telegram's main target, mobile users, would prefer less data consumption, with a focus on lightweight. In this image alone, the difference in bytes is around 49%. Therefore, using the "low" resolution image will allow us to show the page with 49% less data consumption and 49% less image loading time and energy consumption. Also, it's not like the selected image looks that much better in the "high" 650x433 resolution version (200 pixels wider and 133 pixels taller. That is just a 30% wider and a 30% taller).
