    Take this with a grain of salt, but Rumor spreading that the X2 has a Front Facing Camera, but it is disabled.. This coming from a post from another forum.. Something about looking at the upper gith (my guess is next to the ear speaker).. I dunno.. Thoughts?

    It's a proximity sensor...

    No question about it.

    I also read it on BGR's X2 review. They said, "... though you can see a front-facing camera above the display on the right side, it’s not activated for video calls or self-portrait images just yet."

    If they are blowing smoke or they know something.

    I was looking at my x2 today and noticed two different "circles" to the right of the speaker. I figured one was for proximity sensor but didn't know what the other one was for.

    serious question.... why can't these sensors be one sensor? I can't imagine Moto not advertising a FFC and all of a sudden one pops up, but why can't a light and proximity sensor come from the same "circle"

    If you look carefully(with a flashlight), you'll notice not one circle but two inverse D-shaped "iris'". Behind that housing are up to four sensors that operate independently of each other. The proximity sensor basically is a LED emitter with a detector while the other sensor component is an ambient-light sensor with a different spectral response.
