G2X has a smaller sensor?

Looking at the latest photo of the G2X I can't see how they've managed to keep the same sized sensor in it. A 24-120mm F2.8-3.9 lens with the same sized sensor surely wouldn't fit in a camera that size, my money is on a smaller sensor, maybe 1 inch like the RX100. If that is the case I'll probably stick with the G1X. Even a true m4/3's sized sensor would not be able to take a lens with that range that small, that's why the F2.8 zooms in m4/3's have such a limited range. If Canon have managed it I'll be amazed.
