    DROID X2 Actually Has Front Facing Camera?!

    According to the Boy Genius Report it is there, but not activated. Take a look at the top right and it looks like something is there.

    Thoughts?

    Proximity light sensors? The Droid X looks like it has one as well, but its a proximity light sensor (what is used to turn the screen on/off when you are on call and you move the phone closer/further away from face, as well as used for auto screen brightness).

    I think its just speculation, I don't think they would have kept something like that away from us, the front facing camera a big marketing tool right now and Moto/VZW would not have missed that boat on purpose.

    I never looked at it, but there are 2 distinctive circular things there. In my opinion what would be gained by not having it activate off the get go, what it is remains to be seen.

    Proximity sensor. No question about it. It would be like offering a phone with a dual core butnot having it dual core.

    Putting a camera behind dark plastic wouldn't make much sense.

    The X has the proximity sensors on the left, I see what looks like a lens on the inner circle on the right side, but can't be specific about that. I guess we'll see when someone does a breakdown video, I'd be pleasantly surprised if it was.

    There's a led light, proximity sensor, and a light sensor. I highly doubt a camera was installed without any marketing or changing the weight. Just my $0.02
