I found it after I wiped my kid's fingerprints off. Interesting!

It's called a joke. People are now joking about the camera threads because the question of "is there a camera?" has been asked 9034785907834589340589 times, and nobody bothers to read any of the responses. So now all the threads are full of jokes.

Yes, we know. There are 8 pages of this thread. Try reading some of them before responding to any more posts.

It is a light sensor. When I first turned my kindle on it kept on changing the brightness. But when I updated to 6.1it never worked again.

Well I noticed that in some light ( and when you get it in a certain position) and look at it there is something shiny in there!

how do I set up the auto wake on my fire hd when I have a cover with a magnetic strip

try asking your question in a new thread of its own instead of hopping onto this zombie with an un-related question.

I bought a case for my kindle fire and it had a little round cut out for the thing everybody is talking about in the upper left corner.

You guys think that little thing in the top left corner might be a camera and they just haven't updated the ware to support it yet?
Has anyone discussed this probability yet?

This thread was started 3 years ago. The very first Fire did not have a camera. The thing in the corner was a light sensor, which was disabled because the auto-brightness didn't work well.

The current Fire HD also has no camera.
