hypertrophy?

Just a quick question....do I understand this right: hypertrophy is more about gaining muscle volume over gaining strength?

    Hypertrophy deals with increased number of myofilaments in muscle, which basically means to increase muscle size. Of course this should lead to increased strength. The reason that these are distinguished is because strength can be improved by methods independent of hypertrophy, such as skill/technique, neural imput, desensitization of the golgi tendon organ, etc.
