    Hello,

    I saw the iPhone 7 plus has 2 sensors above the front speaker on the top of the screen. It's both a circle. 1 is visible and is for turning off screen when you make phonecalls. The other one is on the right and is barely visible. Where does this sensor stand for?

    No. Ambient Light sensor/control.

    Sound like one is a proximity sensor and another one is an ambient light sensor.

    No, the one that shuts the display off is a proximity sensor. Ambient light controls display brightness.
