Oslo, Norway Elliptic Labs (OSE: ELABS), a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™, has launched the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY® on the HONOR 80GT smartphone. The HONOR 80GT is being launched for the Chinese market. Elliptic Labs’ partner Qualcomm is driving the HONOR 80GT with its Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. The contract for this launch was previously announced by Elliptic Labs.

“Elliptic Labs and HONOR have had a solid collaboration resulting in commercially and critically successful smartphones featuring our innovative AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “The HONOR 80GT is HONOR’s latest device to take advantage of how our AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ enables smartphone makers to offer devices that are smarter, greener, and more human-friendly.”

Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor detects when a user holds their phone up to their ear during a call, allowing the smartphone to turn off its display and disable its screen’s touch functionality. This keeps the user’s ear or cheek from triggering unwanted actions during the call, such as hanging up or dialing numbers. Turning off the screen also helps conserve battery life.

Proximity detection is a core capability that is used in all smartphones, but Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor is a unique, software-only solution that 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.
