Apple filing reveals front-facing camera for device

Apple has filed an application this week that takes on enhanced photo and video performance on a mobile device that clearly shows off a front-facing camera.

The official title of the application is "Apparatus and Method for Compensating for Variations in Digital Cameras", and details various ways that lens manufacturing could be improved, from acquiring "video images of colored light" to  employing a "signal processor" that would adjust the calibrated color intensities of images and videos.

Hardware enhancements are always great, but what interests us most is the image showing a forward-facing camera on the nondescript Apple device.  What could it be?
