One HTC-made “Nexus” device, codenamed “Marlin” and perhaps to be brought to market as the “Pixel XL,” may use an entirely new mobile camera sensor from Sony.

@LlabTooFeR, the source of several previous leaks on HTC, has tweeted out some supposed camera information for the Pixel XL.

Sony has not put out any information about the IMX378, but we do know that the IMX179 is a 1/3.2-inch sensor with an effective resolution of 8 megapixels. Both of last year’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P got the IMX377 as their main sensors, so how much of an improvement we can pull above 1.55μm pixels and a maximum capability of 4K 60fps video is going to be a pressing question to answer.

Also a need-to-know bit: will the regular Pixel get the same camera setup?
