OSLO, Norway, October 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elliptic Labs (OSE: ELABS), a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™, has signed a new license agreement with Xiaomi, the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. The new contract will enable Xiaomi to continue to use Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY® as its proximity detection solution in multiple upcoming smartphone launches.
"Xiaomi’s decision to continue our collaboration demonstrates the innovative spirit of our long-shared history," said Elliptic Labs’ CEO Laila Danielsen. "Our AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ has been at the core of great and impactful smartphone designs from Xiaomi, and we’re looking forward to many more design wins in the future. Sharing similar visions of developing greener, safer, and more human friendly devices will continue to keep our partnership with Xiaomi strong."
AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY turns off a smartphone’s display and disables the screen’s touch functionality when a user holds the device up to their ear during a phone call. If that capability to detect proximity were missing, a user’s ear or cheek could accidentally trigger unwanted actions during a call, such as hanging up or dialing numbers. Turning off the screen automatically helps conserve battery life as well. Proximity detection is a core capability that is used in all smartphones across today’s market.
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY delivers robust proximity detection without the need for a dedicated hardware sensor. By replacing hardware sensors with our software, the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor reduces device cost and eliminates sourcing risk.
