Torch/Light turning on randomly after latest update

Over the past week or two, I've been experiencing the torch/camera light turning itself on for no apparent reason. This happened after the latest update.

One UI version 3.1
Android 11
Baseband version G988BXXU6DUB5
Kernel 4.19.87-20939239 #1 Fri Feb 5 17:54:48 KST 2021

At first, I thought I was just accidentally swiping down the quick panel and hitting the torch button. So I rearranged the Quick Panel layout so that the Torch button is on the 2nd screen (swiping right) reducing the likelihood of accidental swipe/tap. This did not help at all and I kept wondering maybe it was a hard button accidentally being programmed to turn on the torch. i.e. hold up volume, down volume or power key. None of these turn on the torch.

I did notice the torch would turn on its own while I had it on my hand. Could it be shaking the phone causes this behavior? I'm not sure.

While slipping on shoes one day and holding onto the phone while leaning onto a wall, I noticed it turn itself on again. No shakes. The phone was just within close proximity to the wall in my hand while I was leaning on the wall.

Is anyone else experiencing this or guess as to how it is turning itself on? This mystery has me stumped.

I wish they would reduce the sensitivity because I'm having this problem all the time now.

This was it thanks. I never noticed it before.

I am only touching it and it comes on. Super sensitive!

It is now gone.
