OSLO, Norway–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AIVirtualProximitySensor–Elliptic Labs (OSE: ELABS), a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™, is announcing the next HONOR smartphones, the HONOR 80 Series, to use its AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY®. All three phones are being released for the China market and will be driven by both Elliptic Labs’ partners MediaTek and Qualcomm. The HONOR 80 SE is driven by MediaTek’s Dimensity 1080 chipset, Honor 80 Pro with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 782G chipset, and Honor 80 Pro with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. The contract for this launch was previously announced by Elliptic Labs.
“HONOR smartphones represent the innovative spirit our AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ has brought to the smartphone market,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “Our industry-leading software-only solution makes devices smarter, greener, and more human-friendly. Partnering with global manufacturers like HONOR continues to validate our platform’s power, scalability, and value.”
AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor detects when a user holds their phone up to their ear during a call, allowing the smartphone to turn off its display and disable its screen’s touch functionality. This keeps the user’s ear or cheek from triggering unwanted actions during the call, such as hanging up or dialing numbers. Turning off the screen also helps conserve battery life.
Proximity detection is a core capability that is used in all smartphones, but Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor is a unique, software-only solution that delivers robust proximity detection without the need for a dedicated hardware sensor. By replacing hardware sensors with software sensors, the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor reduces device cost and eliminates sourcing risk.
