Oslo, Norway — 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 HONOR’s newest smartphone: the HONOR X40 for the global market. The HONOR X40 smartphone will be driven by the Snapdragon 695 Mobile Platform from Elliptic Labs’ partner, Qualcomm. Elliptic Labs announced its contract for the HONOR X40 earlier this year.
“The HONOR X40 is just the latest example of the innovative and beautifully-designed smartphones that have come from Elliptic Labs’ collaboration with HONOR,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “We are the world leader in software-based AI Virtual Smart Sensors, and global smartphone OEMs like HONOR rely on the performance, scalability, and reliability of our AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform to make their devices 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. Still, 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.
