Elliptic Labs, a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™, is launching its AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ on Xiaomi’s upcoming Poco F4 GT gaming smartphone to the global market. Working with Elliptic Labs’ partner Qualcomm, the Poco F4 GT smartphone is driven by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. The contract for this launch was announced previously.
“Elliptic Labs continues to deliver powerful software-only AI Virtual Smart Sensors that empower global OEMs like Xiaomi to make devices smarter, greener, and more human friendly,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “We are proud that our AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ has enabled our partner Xiaomi to bring many smartphones to market that are delivering on their vision for innovation and growth.”
AI Virtual Proximity Sensor
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor turns off the smartphone’s display and disables the screen’s touch functionality when users hold the device up to their ear during a phone call. Without that capability to detect proximity, a user’s ear or cheek could accidentally trigger unwanted actions during a call, such as hanging up or dialing numbers while the call is ongoing. Turning off the screen automatically also helps conserve battery life. Proximity detection is a core capability that is used in all smartphones across today’s market. Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor 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.
