The question is by whom. Apple? The sensor manufacturer? Nokia 7650?
Some 3rd party?
See here: http://www.infosyncworld.com/reviews/n/2088.html
"On the upper part of the front, there's a proximity sensor for
switching the loudspeaker function off when the 7650 is lifted to the
ear, and a light sensor if the phone is set to automatically adjust
the backlight corresponding to the lighting conditions." The article
is from 2002 - oops - and I thought the iPhone is 5 years ahead?
