It really just is an ambient light sensor

Search for: " Front and Back Dual Ambient Light Sensors for Improved Automatic Brightness Settings" in the article.


In that case, what should I do to observe its function? I thought I tested for that.

On my sony i can go into service menu, where i can check the readout from each sensor, including the RGBC-ir sensor, laser autofocus distance readout etc, so just try to find out if you can go into the service menu on your samsung.

I don't think in normal operation you could test it in any meaningful way, because if their algoritms are good enough, they will consider the possibility that in normal use your finger could cover that sensor, and in that case only use the front ambient light sensor.
