Canon's press release is here:
http://www.canon.com/news/2013/mar04e.html

... essentially it appears that they've manufactured a 2MP sensor using modern technology with amazing results:
"The newly developed CMOS sensor features pixels measuring 19 microns square in size, which is more than 7.5-times the surface area of the pixels on the CMOS sensor incorporated in Canon's top-of-the-line EOS-1DX"

Now if they can pull out something similar for 4K video... (8MP stills)...

it is super-senstive (at the per-pixel level) by the simple strategy of having few, big photosites with no color filters. Interesting for surveillance cameras and astronomical video, but I see no progress of relevance to "artistic still photography."
