Comparing the #Nexus5  leaked photos that show the camera to pics of the G2, there's something rather interesting going on: You know how log files leaked specs of possibly another only 8MP camera, right? Well, we all know that packing a bunch of pixels onto a small sensor only makes image quality worse. Even Apple has admitted that.

Anyhow, note where the arrows are pointing in the below image stitch (courtesy of Pixlr on this Chromebook I'm typing on). Of course, at first, the G2's camera eye looks rather large, but look closely and you'll find there's actually a glass covering over the lens itself, whereas in the Nexus 5 leak, the lens is on the surface. In both cases, it appears that the aperture (the main point of entry for light) is the same size, which in turn likely indicates identically-sized sensors.

This could only mean one thing: Google following in Apple's iPhone 5S footsteps by increasing individual pixel size... to possibly a one-upping level. Hopefully Google's announcement will tell us more...
