San Francisco, Calif., and Beijing, China — Elliptic Labs, innovator in AI Virtual Ultrasound Sensors™, was honored with a first place, Gold award in "Innovation in Technology Development" as part of the prestigious 2018 Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards. Recognized as the world's premiere business award for discovering innovation in the workplace, the 5th annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards received more than 800 entries from 22 nations and territories.
Elliptic Labs was recognized for its Virtual Ultrasound Sensor™ solution INNER BEAUTY® which replaces the conventional hardware proximity sensor that requires unsightly holes on the front of the phone and limits screen real estate. Recently, Elliptic Labs' INNER BEAUTY technology was incorporated into the much-anticipated Nut 3 smartphone by Chinese phone manufacturer Smartisan. It was also the technology that allowed Xiaomi to create the first full-screen display and the thinnest bezel-less frame on the market for the Mi Mix and Mi Mix 2S phones. Elliptic Lab's technology is also running on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 Mobile Platform using the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine (NPE).
Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs, said Elliptic's intelligent technology provides unique experiences for users and cost-effective solutions for phone manufacturers that must compete in a highly saturated and competitive market. "To make a difference in the phone market, you must offer revolutionary products that dramatically enhance design, significantly improve user interaction and appeal to the manufacturer's costing model," Danielsen said.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 100 executives around the world. The awards will be presented to winners at a gala banquet at the Mira Hotel in Hong Kong on June 1, 2018.
"We are very pleased that entries to this program grew by more than 30% this year," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "This growth illustrates how vital innovation is to business growth, and how important being recognized for their innovation is to enterprises throughout the Asia-Pacific region. We extend our warmest congratulations to Elliptic Labs, and to all of this year's Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners."
