This is dust. It happens. You are keeping your phone in tour pockets, on chairs everywhere. So there is and there will always be a chance that you end up with dust under the lens...
I still stand by my theory. Actually I've just discovered the new camera no longer does 16:9. The old camera did 2mpix widescreen (16:9) so I assumed that the 1.9 mpix was the same which would cut the right and left edges off the sensor like the video does. Obviously because it's using 4:3 unlike video, it didn't prove my point and looked to disprove it but actually it doesn't.

So, I'm not sure if this new finding supports your theory. But I went into the camera app info and was able to uninstall the update to bring back to the old camera. In the view finder the spot was gone but it still appeared in pictures. For the video though, it doesn't even appear when watching the recording. So I guess it cuts it off? Regardless I'm just going to factory reset and if its still there (which I think you're right and it will be) I'm calling back and asking for RMA.

Yeah, Snapchat takes photos in 16:9 to match the display aspect ratio. Video is recorded in 16:9. Photos in the camera app are taken in 4:3. This is probably the link here. Some of the other camera apps in the Play Store may allow you to take pictures in 16:9 resolutions still.
So, the new phone is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. Today the phone fell off my mount in the car. There was no damage or anything but I noticed later today that the spot was gone. Not sure if the dust got moved when the phone fell. I don't know what to do now though. If I just send back the old phone, when they go through the troubleshooting at Google they're not going to find the problem, so I think I should let them know that the problem was resolved. However, at the same time if the dust spot just got moved, while it's not visible now it can just as easily come back since it's still under the glass. Any ideas?
