New Moto X camera sample suggests widescreen ratio for full-res shots
We just got to check out a new picture of what could be the upcoming Motorola Moto X, and while it sure seemed to resemble previous images reported to depict the handset, it didn’t arrive alongside much in the way of confirmation about the phone’s hardware. We’ve already heard a number of specs rumors, including that the phone could arrive with a ten-megapixel camera. Today some evidence shows up in support of that idea, in the form of a few camera samples.
Now, this isn’t the first time that an image has been attributed to the X phone or Moto X, but this looks like our first run-in with a full-resolution shot. An image surfaced a week ago that was about eight megapixels, but this new one measures in at 4320 x 2432 – or 10.5 megapixels.
The neat bit is the aspect ratio here: the Moto X appears that it will take full-resolution photos in 16:9, rather than the squarer ratios employed by many other smartphone cameras. Whether or not that’s a benefit will depend on your personal preferences, but we imagine that a lot of you are going to see this as a plus.
