We haven’t heard any definitive internal details regarding the mysterious Moto X—a lot of focus has been on the customizations options teased by Motorola. But a new report on Monday claims to have one pretty significant piece of info about the device’s camera, something that sources say will change the quality of low-light mobile technology. Yes, even better than the HTC One and Nokia’s excellent Lumia line.
According to Taylor Wimberly, former owner of Android and Me, the upcoming handset will come equipped with “Clear Pixel” camera technology, which will supposedly produce unprecedented low-light images. Wimberly explains that images that used to be dark, blurry and lack details will be “things of the past.” Not much information is provided beyond that initial hype, but taking Wimberly’s comments with what Google said earlier this year about insanely great cameras, and expectations are certainly raised.
Like other advancing mobile shooters, Moto X’s alleged Clear Pixel sensor will be more sensitive to light, capturing more wavelengths of visible light. Wimberly’s report claims the technology can be controlled by gestures, but it’s unclear how that experience will vary from a traditional experience. In a recent report from ABC News, which shared details of Moto X’s customization options, sources said users might be able to activate the camera with a quick flick of the device.
We’re still not sure when we’ll hear full details of the Moto X. Plenty of case leaks and supposed details about Motorola’s design angle have hit the Internet, but we’re still waiting on the company to reveal the full picture. A lot of hype has been built for Motorola’s project over the past several months, and the pressure is on for the company to deliver. Hopefully we’ll find out soon if it was worth the wait.
