Default G2 Front facing camera?

Ok so I was taking a really good look at my g2 using my nexus one led torch.
In the top left corner is a sensor and another odd looking thing.
To me and a few other people I have showed it to it looks like a camera.
I compared it to the sensors on my nexus one and it looks more like a camera than any type of sensor.
I know it doesn't mention anything about a camera in the specs
but just like my nexus one updates unlocked new features that were already there.
the hardware already existed.
I'm not saying I am right
I just want other people to take a good look at it and give your opinion.
If it is a camera then that would definitely make the g2 the phone for me

Now with sprint and hate the data T-Mobile was much Better. I just can't resist the Evo 3d I Love HTC

You have a proximity sensor as well as a light sensor.

Do you actually have a g2?

you are right the phone does obviously have both the proximity and light sensors
but like I mentioned so does my nexus and this looks nothing like either of those 2
if you are right then I believe the camera looking one would be the light sensor. And that would be one hell of a light sensor
But just a note the leds are nicely hidden under the speaker grill and another sensor could be as well.

I just don't want to rule it out just yet
unless you yourself have a g2 that you have examined please don't make comments

i would love to believe that T-mobile hid this surprise from us. Even as far as to not even include it in the specs for the phone anywhere but I really don't think they would. It would also make the phone to much competition for the upcoming myTouch HD which I believe is gonna be even more expensive than the G2 was.

i have to admit it does kinda look like a little camera but that is most definately just the 2 stated sensors. The whole is wayyy to small to be a camera and there was already a tear down of this phone with nothing stating it had a front facing camera. our hopes are crushed :'(

myTouch HD is the Desire HD? If so, they ruined its looks.

you guys DO know that desire HD has a 4.3" screen as MyTouch HD has a 3.8" screen.... completely different devices.

I'd say its a variant of HTC lexicon (verizon phone) without the keyboard.

It does look a little like a cam but its smaller than all the other FFCs I've seen on other phones so I'm pretty sure its just one of the sensors

The HTC website has specs up for the Desire HD. Its a different phone from the mytouch.

The 2 front facing holes were one of the first things I noticed.

The bottom hole looks like it could be a low res camera,
I would open it up to confirm, but im not sure im going to keep the phone so I dont want to void my warranty just yet.
