OSLO, Norway–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AIVirtualProximitySensor—Elliptic Labs (OSE: ELABS), a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™, has launched its AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY® on the Xiaomi 12S Ultra and Xiaomi 12 Pro — the latest flagship smartphones from Xiaomi, the world’s third-largest smartphone OEM. Both phones are targeted for the China market. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is powered by Elliptic Labs’ partner Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Meanwhile, Elliptic Labs’ partner MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000+ chipset drives the Xiaomi 12 Pro. The contract for this Xiaomi launch was announced earlier by Elliptic Labs.
“Xiaomi’s continued selection of our AI Virtual Proximity Sensor for its leading smartphones, and our companies’ collective success, highlights just why the AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ is a solid solution for smartphone proximity sensing,” said Elliptic Labs’ CEO Laila Danielsen. “The AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform is a 100% software-only solution that makes devices smarter, greener, and more human-friendly, enabling the best and most innovative smartphone designs.”
AI Virtual Proximity Sensor
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor turns off a smartphone’s display and disables the screen’s touch functionality when users hold the device up to their ear during a phone call. If that capability to detect proximity was missing, a user’s ear or cheek could accidentally trigger unwanted actions during a call, such as hanging up or dialing numbers. Turning off the screen automatically helps conserve battery life as well. Proximity detection is a core capability that is used in all smartphones across today’s market. Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor delivers robust proximity detection without the need for a dedicated hardware sensor. By replacing hardware sensors with software sensors, the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor reduces device cost and eliminates sourcing risk.
