Ahhaaa, I get it!

They done a 20MP sensor for the blue layer(a little bit more than the Merrill sensor) and 5MP sensors for the green and red layer. I believe they have done this because the signal gets significantly weaker deeper in the substrate. The bigger sensor-sites for green and red layers should allow the sensor to receive a significant amount of photons to have a clear signal even at high ISO settings.

However, that means that the camera will have to interpolate the green and red colors over the above corresponding 4 blue pixels. With the interpolation shenanigans, I hope the photographs will still be as good as they are on the Merrills and that there is still no need for an AA-filter.
