We do have a front facing camera, could use that for a cool mod sometime in the future... Oh well.
To be precise: We have
and we have not
Ambient Light Sensor.
Please take a look at:
From hardware perspective TMD 2672 can act like proximity sensor and ALS, but not at the same time. From software perspective it is proximity sensor. Ambient Light Sensor is much simpler to be made due fact, it does not need IR diode and Prox control/integration block.
ADC and Data block are the same for both of them.
I did not get reply from author of TAOS txx2x7x driver and I do not have skills to compile kernel for Ace2, but since we whave Kernel 3.x ... and when the sources appear, could you bagnz0r try to compile kernel with TAOS txx2x7x driver instead samsung one. It may work ... I hope. Sony ARC S have only proximity sensor from hardware point of view ... but it works like ALS also. I think its worth a try
