Cracked screen - why does product photo show two camera holes?

My daughter cracked the screen on her iPod 4G (white). I understand the LCD and digitizer are fuzed and I need to get them as a unit. However, as I've looked around for the part, I see on the product photo what looks like TWO camera holes on the top front: iPod Touch (4th Gen) Display Assembly. The iPod 4G only has one hole in the center top -- the product pic (when you click on the white option) clearly shows two holes, or at least two black circles that I take for camera holes. Regardless what that is, the white iPod 4G I'm holding in my hand only has one circle there, not two...

So my question is: what is the correct part to repair the damage? iPod Touch (4th Gen) Display Assembly seems like the right one, and I've seen that on other sites as well, but the photo doesn't appear to actually match the device, so I'm very confused. Thanks in advance!

Carnix -

I have same EXACT problem. Shattered screen. Works perfect. I guess I need whole assembly but look at this ?

Search ebay for this item# 270883946933

Our Ipod Touch g4 does NOT have the second "ambient sensor" hole. Period dot.

Google image search and you will see the 2 different versions.

So will this work ? Same question.

The other hole (right of centre) is for the ambient light sensor - this is normal and you should see it on your iPod of you look closely. I just checked mine and it is easily visible if illuminated with a torch. I suspect the image is overemphasising the second hole in the white cover.

The part you have linked is correct
