Yea I was having a problem like that once on my Note 10 it's the proximity sensor, it wouldn't go away after a call so I held the power button and restarted my phone. I haven't had it happen again

@usermKn03273J7 hey there! The blinking dot is indeed the proximity sensor and perfectly normal as @LongHiker said. It should only be visible when you're on a call and you remove the phone from your ear. If you're on speakerphone the dot shouldn't be visible.
