Moto X phone to sport a so-called Clear Pixel camera with gesture controls
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 08, 2013, 4:41 AM
It turns out that the Moto X phone might "feature a Clear Pixel Camera with gesture controls," whatever that means. Google's Vic Gundotra was promising "insanely great" camera in the next Nexus phone, with Nikon branding, but for now it seems that Motorola and the Nexus line will be kept separated, though that camera might have been folded into the Moto X, too.
Last we heard, the shooter was supposed to be 10 MP, and the source also confirmed the specs that were tipped to us before - 720p HD screen, dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 Pro processor and 2 GB of RAM.
The thing he writes about the camera is that "dark, blurry pics and lack of details will be things of the past," and one comment reminds us of a technology Kodak had a while ago that incorporates panchromatic, or "clear" pixels, like the arrangement you see on the right, to achieve two to four times better light sensitivity. Whether the Moto X camera will use a similar technology, and will this result in better low-light pictures in reality, remains to be seen.
- Display 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 10 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Dual-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 16 GB
- Battery 2200 mAh

Wasn't clear pixel the technology developed by Sony and intended to debut in the 2013 Exmor sensors, which was later removed from specifications because it did not deliver the intended results? Maybe they've fixed it, now...

its almost impossible to beat a huge 41 megapixel 1/1.2 inch sensor when it comes to detail and lowlight performance..(with 3 Axis OIS and nokia software optimization it will a huge step for mobile photography) but this phone can beat others in android ecosystem.

I really think it will be a better camera if it uses different subpixel arrangement , right now all the camera phones are Bayer (2x2 - RG on top and GB on bottom).. bayer arrangement is a great choice for low iso detail.. but it isnt optimized for low chromatic noise in lowlight situations.. best example for new and innovative arrangement is Fuji X-trans sensor with more random arrangement(4x4) and better performance in high iso low light situations.. cant wait for more information about X Phone..

I think that ,no matter the new name, with 10MPX is better than the 4MPX experience from HTC.

The 4MP UltraPixel camera on the HTC One isn't as great as tech sites reported it to be. Pictures were pixelated and even in low light it barely performed better than my GS3.

Still, I give HTC credit for bucking the "more megapixelz!!" trend. But I think Nokia is on the right track with their 8.7 MP Lumia camera, which is a good middle ground between the UltraPixel and brute force Galaxy S camps.
