Motorola will almost certainly introduce a new Moto X this year, though it may be a bit on the early side to start thinking about what, exactly, they’ll look to do. Some early information could have given us a hint as to Motorola’s plans for its camera, though.

According to information received by STJS, the 3rd generation Moto X will be equipped with a 16 megapixel camera, and that we’ll see the return of Motorola’s ClearPixel technology which uses an RGBC Pixel filter to make for a sensor that performs better in low light. The camera will also supposedly come with optical image stabilization, a feature which the 2014 Moto X can’t boast.

Other features include the ability to record at a resolution of 4K (though you’re limited to 30 frames per second) and 120 frames per second (which limits you to 1080p). There’s also the option of recording at 240 frames per second if you can stand to keep your video resolution at a mere 720p. All of that sounds like the makings of a great camera and we’re hoping Motorola can make it more of a standout feature of this year’s flagship instead of the afterthought that it was in years prior.
