    what is the tiny LED beside the proximity sensor?

    i have always assumed that there is only the notification LED beside the proximity sensor. when i woke up this morning, there was a very faint red LED next to the bigger notification LED. i have never seen this before and i didn't know how it turned on or how to turn it off. when i rebooted the phone, it immediately shut off and didn't turn on again. when i looked at the phone closely, there is indeed 3 holes there: the notification LED, proximity sensor, and this LED i'm trying to identify.

    i get it now. this is for the face and then there's another hole for the light sensor to adjust screen brightness.

    okay that one could be for the auto light detection if you have your brightness set to auto adjust thats what the second lens does so

    1-LED notifaction
    2-proximity sensor
    3-Light detection
