Plug for front cam behind front grill?

I was washing my 2018 Hybrid yesterday, and i noticed a plug hanging behind the front grill, around the center area. Could this possibly be for the front camera? My car has only the reverse camera, if i purchase one for the front, i suppose i would have to replace the entune HU as well, and get one of those aftermarket android HU. But then, i should find 2 yellow video jacks behind the HU? I'd probably have to use a signal injector in order to find out where the other end goes. Any way, if anyone has any information about this plug, that would be cool, thanks.

Attached a picture of the plug.

It is just waiting to be plugged to something. Couldn't be the temperature sensor otherwise it would flash an error code and it will not show up on the middle display. A radar for the brake assist, why not? I found a used front camera on ebay, looks like this plug could fit in the terminals. Now the camera is not cheap enough to get one to try it out and see if it comes out on the HU screen. Anyone with bird's view option can confirm or not this plug is for the camera, or if anyone's rav4 equipped with brake assist or collision assist.

Simply plugging the front camera may not help. You will need a control module like Birth View or similar.
Subaru has similar "camera-ready" wiring.

That seems to ba a nice hack of the reverse camera function. Gotta find a DPDT switch that can fit one of the empty slot.

After thorough check, this can't be a camera plug, there's only 2 wires connecting the plug.
Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.
