Google Senior Vice President of Engineering Vic Gundotra released some juicy tidbits today over on Google+ regarding what to expect in future Nexus devices in terms of camera technology.

His comments came about in a thread where he was discussing with others whether he would need to take along his DSLR on an upcoming trip. One commenter asked Gundotra whether there would ever be a day when users could get the same quality of photo-taking with a Nexus device, to which Gudontra replied,

We are committed to making Nexus phones insanely great cameras. Just wait and see.

It is true that with previous updates to Android, Google has looked very closely at improving the software side of things of taking pictures. Clearly, Gudontra is referring to something bigger than just software, raising speculation that Google has plans for significantly upping the scale on the hardware side. One can only wonder whether or not he is referring to the upcoming X phone.

Last week, Tim reported that a senior executive over at Australian carrier, Telstra called the Motorola X Phone a “a real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple.” To add more fuel to the fire, a source over at Motorola offered further insight into why we should be getting really excited,

Google has been working on this device for a long time. It has software features and capabilities that are not available on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Apple iPhone. The software is really powerful and it pulls together Google services like no other manufacturer has done in the past.

So, as you can see, I’m just speculating here, but one can only wonder whether Gudontra’s comments are related to the news we heard last week. In any case, Google is doing a darn good job keeping me interested in what’s to come in the near future.
