It depends; if it is the framebuffer/GPU that limits the resolution to 720 lines, then perhaps. If it is the acceleration functions and general grunt of the CPU that limits it to 720 lines, then no.

Decoding 1080p at 25fps requires not only unspeakably enormous amounts of data processing, it also requires unspeakably enormous amounts of memory bandwidth.
