Hi as the question says

Did anybody notice a small blinking circle (will be around 1mm size), around 1 cm to the right of the camera when you place a call on the note 10 +

or is it only me?

It appears to be the prox sensor (for turning the phone screen off when its up to your ear). That's what I've been seeing in comments of other people seeing the flashing during calls.

Hopefully a sensor and not a pixel issue. Happening to me

Yes, proximity sensor. S10+ 5G has it also.

It is the proximity sensor.

And by the way it doesn't work well at all on my S10 plus. When I am on the phone the screen would turn on and then my ear would start tapping on the screen turning things on and off.

Pretty annoying, so I had to learn to manually turn the screen off with the power button every time before I answer or make a call...

I sincerely hope they have somehow found a way to improve it with the Note

just now saw it whilst playing a whatsapp voice message. when i put my finger over it, the phones speaker will shut off which seems to confirms its proximity sensors.

i did notice after some seconds, maybe a minute, the blinking light stops on whatsapp if you are listening to a speaker call on whatsapp... i have the whatsapp on full screen mode so the green part of the phones GUI is up there...

I noticed this today also when I placed a call. I dont make calls much so I just noticed it after 2 days. Just had some free time now and quickly rushed to locate this thread I had seen yesterday I believe.

What a relief it's the proxi sensor.
