The Moto X is said to come with 1.4-micron pixels. That number refers to the size of the pixel. It is larger than most of today’s smartphones like the 1.1-micron cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and other flagships. A larger pixel collects more light and generally contributes to better low-light performance.
Most interestingly, though, rumors say the Moto X will use a camera technology similar to the oversampling done on Nokia PureView cameraphones. There, Nokia combines 7 pixels into one superpixel with most accurate color information.
Altogether, this should result in one of the greatest smartphone cameras and we couldn’t be more excited. Will the first Motorola handset made under Google deliver? Stay tuned as we’ll be covering the official announcement tomorrow at around 3pm ET | 12pm PT.
