In this same discussion thread Thom also mentions "I believe Nikon has one really big surprise coming, sensor-wise". 50mp does not really sound like a big surprise to me so he must be referring to something else.

Could the surprise be Nikon providing an RGBW sensor, or a sensor that operates under such a principle that allows for better or cleaner gain during image processing?

Anything is possible. But being possible doesn't mean likely. What evidence are you going by to suggest this might be possible? Anyone can guess or make stuff up.

The RGBW sensor technology has been around for some time, approx 10 years ago Kodak filed the original patent. Perhaps the White part at pixel level allows reduction of colour noise?
