There's good evidence to show that fewer pixels is not necessarily better for low light. For instance, the Sony A7sii (12Mp) is no better than the A7rii (42Mp) when looking at the overall noise on images at the same magnification. The noise per pixel will be lower in the A7s, but the A7r's pixels will be downsized to generate an image of the same size which reduces the SNR overall.
