The new sensor has 19 + 5 + 5 MP; I think it would be a good guess to say that it would resolve less than a hypothetical 19 + 19 + 19 MP sensor, but how much less? Will it be equivalent, better, or worse than the current 15 + 15 + 15 sensor?

I think it will have the same luminance resolution as a 19+19+19 sensor.

But, the chrominance will be somewhere between 5 MP and 19 MP.

Which will vary throughout the image, dependent entirely on the value of the four top layer pixels. So some parts of the image could be as low as 5mp whereas other part could be as high as 19mp, color resolution of course.
