    I have seen a prototype smart phone with a small projector, giving the ability to show a picture or video on a blank wall in a darkened room, it was about the size of a 19" tv screen. Could this be the reason for the extra hole?

    It's a wormhole into another dimension.

    Just kidding.

    It's an x-ray camera that allows you to see through walls.

    I might have suggested a microphone but I don't see anything like it on my New iPad. Have you seen it on other people's iPads?

    NFC doesn't use a hole. It uses a loop antennae and a simple induction current for activation.
