Question Front sensor?

Hey guys, I was reading about the phone in the Help app and I noticed one of these pictures:

1.png

The one pointing to the LED indicator isn't really the LED indicator, it should be more like this:

2.png

So my question is, what is the sensor that the LED indicator points to in the first picture? Are there 2 proximity/light sensors?

It's most probable the IR sensor that htey say is LED.

My phone looks exactly like the first picture. It seems to be completely correct as far as I can see.

[Edit]
Having looked again, I realise that I was wrong. The sensors have an obvious cut-out for them but the LED does not and my LED is indeed where the OP said it was.

It's the RGB light sensor. What they have marked as the light sensor is actually the proximity and gesture sensors.
