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 Transsion flagship Tecno Phantom V Fold smartphone, Elliptic Labs’ first foldable phone launch. The Tecno Phantom V Fold is being launched for the global market. Elliptic Labs’ partner MediaTek is driving the Tecno Phantom V Fold with its premium Dimensity 9000+ chipset. The contract for this launch was previously announced by Elliptic Labs.
“Elliptic Labs’s partnership with Transsion has thus far resulted in some of the most advanced smartphones produced under their higher-end Tecno brand,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “The Tecno Phantom V Fold is the first foldable phone to utilize our AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY. Much like the bezel-less designs before it, the foldable phone design trend is the latest smartphone industrial design that takes advantage of the AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™, which continues to empower 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.
