OSLO, Norway–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Elliptic Labs, a leading global AI software company specializing in AI Virtual Smart Sensors, has announced the launch of its AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY on Xiaomi’s latest smartphone, the Redmi Note 12S. The Redmi Note 12S is targeted for the international market, and the partnership between Elliptic Labs and Xiaomi’s partner, MediaTek, has been previously confirmed.
The AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY developed by Elliptic Labs detects when a user brings their phone close to their ear during a call. This enables the smartphone to automatically turn off the display and disable touch functionality, preventing unintended actions such as hanging up or dialing numbers when the user’s ear or cheek comes into contact with the screen. Additionally, this feature helps conserve battery life.
While proximity detection is a common feature in smartphones, Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor stands out as a software-only solution, eliminating the need for dedicated hardware sensors. By leveraging software sensors instead of physical components, the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor reduces device costs and eliminates sourcing risks.
INNER BEAUTY is a registered trademark of Elliptic Labs, while AI Virtual Smart Sensor, AI Virtual Proximity Sensor, and AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform are trademarks of the company.
