The high beam has several led sources that look like mini projectors. Maybe these focus onto different places to fill the road better?
Yep, firing the LED back into a properly define reflector make sense too....the key is to properly desing the LED lens/reflector to make the most of the quite different characteristics of LEDs vs the various incandescent light source.
