Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor Launches on 4 Xiaomi Smartphone

The virtual sensor eliminates the need for placing any physical hardware for proximity sensing in smartphones.

Artificial intelligence-powered virtual smart sensors developer Elliptic Labs’ AI virtual proximity sensor named Inner Beauty, will be featured in four Xiaomi Redmi smartphones. The virtual proximity sensor will be used in Xiaomi’s Note series smartphones, which will be launched globally soon. 

The phones in which the Inner Beauty AI Virtual Proximity sensor will be present are Redmi Note 11, Note 11S, Note 11 Pro, and Note 11 Pro 5G. When users bring the smartphone up to their ear during a phone call, Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor turns off the display. It disables the touchscreen’s touch functions, which to date required physical hardware to be present in smartphones. 

CEO of Elliptic Labs, Laila Danielsen, said,” Replacing hardware sensors with Elliptic Labs software-only AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ delivers cost-optimized innovation and human and eco-friendly solutions while eliminating continued supply chain risk. This makes Elliptic Labs the ideal partner for global smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi.”

She further added that Xiaomi is beginning this year by introducing their AI Virtual Proximity Sensor into four smartphone models, which they are pleased about. Since 2016, Xiaomi has put its trust in Elliptic Labs’ reliable technology.

Proximity sensors are a crucial component of smartphones as they drastically increase smartphones’ usability by minimizing the chances of unwanted touches while users are on phone calls and also help in providing better battery life by automatically switching off display units when required. 

The AI Virtual Proximity Sensor decreases device cost and removes sourcing requirements by replacing hardware with software sensors. Norway-based AI technology company Elliptic Labs was founded by Laila Danielsen in 2006. 

The company specializes in developing artificial intelligence-enabled virtual sensors for multiple industries, including smartphones, IoT, laptops, automotive, and many more. To date, it has raised over $20 million from investors like EASME – EU Executive Agency for SMEs, Anne Worsoe, and others.
