During making call and using laudspeaker, proximity sensor should be disabled. Have a look how it works in N9

Does it happen when something is close to the top of the screen? (proximity sensor feature)

@simo no. it happened before i have made video, when camera was close.

Could you edit all the steps you took like 1. 2. 3. to your question? That might help a lot

@simo sorry - you're right. it's a proximity sensor bug.

This is a bug caused by changes in audio routing.

Instead of having just "ihf" audio sink, there is now also separate "ihfforcall" which is used during call.

The blanking policy engine does not recognize it and thus the proximity blanking stays enabled.

Filed internal ticket for this.
