I'm live-chatting with Samsung support right now. They indicate that it is simply a protective lens cover to prevent scratching. (I'll post the whole transcript when I'm done.)

To be honest it's actually hard to see the cover at first -- it's not applied like removable shipping protectors are normally applied, where the protector is very clearly there and applied in such a way as to make removal obvious and easy. To remove the lens cover you need to get a fingernail right there at the outer edge of the silver bezel until you feel the rigid plastic square lift off.
