    Over on the Facebook Model X owners group, there is a picture and discussion of a new camera housing that new Model X seem to be getting. The housing supports two cameras, although so far people are still only getting one camera in the new housing.

    Interesting. I just got my X last week and it does not have that second cutout. Looks like there's definitely room in the housing though...

    Is there a camera in the cutout to the left?

    Either a camera or a laser.

    The two guys who got these (one with a replacement windshield) say there is as yet only one camera. So this is a new housing part, but no extra AP functional parts yet.

    Looks like I will be pushing my X order out unless a hardware announcement is made soon and the new hardware enters production models.

    The MX housing has always had room for 2 cameras as per @Cosmacelf's picture, but one of them is blanked off.

    Looks like they forgot to put the blanking plate back in when they replaced the windscreen (the FB post mentions a windscreen replacement).

    Be nice to be proven wrong, but I suspect there is nothing to see here...

    @J1mbo -- your comment is interesting-- have you seen pictures of the other X's with the extra blank in place? I tried searching but to no avail.

    Every (other) X has the blank in place which is why you can only see one camera.

    Check out this thread for some more background...

    False alarm, yeah, my Sig 22x Model X also has the dual camera housing, but with the driver side blanked out.
