Oslo, Norway — Elliptic Labs, leading the market in ultrasound virtual sensors, announced today that a top-five Asian smartphone manufacturer will include Elliptic Labs' INNER BEAUTY® AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ in four of its new smartphone models. Now in its fourth generation, INNER BEAUTY replaces the traditional infrared hardware proximity sensor with software, thus improving design alternatives and reducing cost.

"Securing yet another license contract with this large OEM demonstrates the value-add of our virtual sensors," said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. "As our OEM customers continue deploying our technology into more phone models and products, the benefits of replacing hardware with advanced software are increasingly evident, such as compelling cost, space savings and enhanced functionality."

INNER BEAUTY was introduced in 2016 and immediately revolutionized smartphone design by creating a new approach to proximity sensing, a necessary function that turns off the screen and disables the touch functionality when users hold the device up to their ear. INNER BEAUTY made possible full-screen phones without holes on the front, eliminating the need for the thick bezels that had been standard before Elliptic Labs' software-only solution was available to OEMs.
