This agreement will target Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY® being utilized on the smartphone manufacturer’s upcoming foldable smartphone launch.
“Bringing on yet another new global top-5 smartphone manufacturer as a customer signals that our 100% software-only AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ is truly scalable,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “We’re pleased that we are experiencing that several large smartphone OEMs are using our AI Virtual Proximity Sensor for their future flagship foldable smartphones.”
AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY 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.
