We already know quite a lot about the camera inside the Motorola Moto X. We've shown you the tech that is behind it and the quality of the photos it can produce. But having a little more detailed technical info won't hurt, would it? Meet the OV10820 by OmniVision – the camera module outfitted in Moto's latest handset. What's so special about it, you ask? Well, that it has a 10.5MP sensor with native 16:9 aspect ratio is...

Motorola Moto X can capture video beyond 1080p, that's great for a wonderful perfect phone.

the price is so wrong! how can you demand 700 $ for a moto x off contract? nokia lumia 1020 has the exact same price off contract lool. this shoud've been a variant of the nexus lineup.

actually the lumia 1020 is 600$ off contract (or so i have read), plus i also read that calculations lead to a 579$ price for the Moto X not 700$ which is nevertheless insane

Such a nice/feature filled video sensor, why not to complement with a 1080P screen??? Ah Moto???

1. your eyes cannot differentiate b/w 720p and 1080p
2. 1080p drains your battery faster

Well that explains the extra thickness. The iPhone 5 has a 1/3.2 inch sensor and the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has 1/3.6 inch sensor. I forget the size of the sensor on the HTC one but I think it is 1/3.2 inch (someone tell me please) but the HTC One is interesting. For it to be a 4 megapixel camera, it captures some impressive detail. I mean it is not going to help much with the resolve because the iPhone and SGS4 out perform it but if HTC goes with a sensor size of 1/2.6 inches and manages to keep the pixel size in between 1.7 to 2.2 microns, and adding resolve to about 8 megapixels, we will have a cellphone with a camera that has the best per pixel performance... The HTC One already isn't a bad performer, its just the resolution doesn't help.
Another issue is HTC's image processing...too much noise suppression combating the over sharpening. I don't think that grain levels are that bad to have such strong noise suppression. They also need to balance their sharpness levels as well as dynamic range.
