Android Central Question

there is a red light aglow ever so slightly, but definitively present, in the centre of the camera lenz on the front (slefie) sideof my 2016 samsung A5. ive only noticed about ten mins ago so i dont knownhow long its been goin for, aside from the last ten mins of course. it wasnt there early this morning amd never before. its not a reflection or light variable of any kind as it is even more prominent in the dark. any ideas? thx

Welcome to Android Central! Are you sure it isn't the proximity sensor? The proximity sensor (which is located right near the front-facing camera) uses an infrared beam that should be invisible to the naked eye, but can actually be seen using a camera's viewfinder. If you can see it with just your own eyes, then maybe the beam's calibration is off, and it's actually leaking a bit into the visible light spectrum.
