Elliptic Labs Ships AI Virtual Proximity Sensor on HONOR 200 Lite Smartphone

Elliptic Labs (OSE: ELABS), a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™ currently deployed in over 500 million devices, is shipping its AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY® on HONOR's 200 Lite smartphone, HONOR's latest entry level launch for the global market. Elliptic Labs' partner MediaTek will run the HONOR 200 Lite smartphone with the Dimensity 700 chipset. Elliptic Labs previously announced this contract in May 2023.

"Elliptic Labs' AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform has been chosen by HONOR to drive software-only innovation from their entry-level to flagship devices across 20 models," said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. "Through our industry-leading expertise in AI/ML, ultrasound technology, and sensor fusion, the largest global smartphone makers like HONOR have consistently made the AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform a key element to further push their smartphone designs. This is why the top smartphone manufacturers like HONOR depend on Elliptic Labs to deliver products that are greener, smarter, and more human-friendly."

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.

INNER BEAUTY is a registered trademark of Elliptic Labs.

AI Virtual Smart Sensor, AI Virtual Proximity Sensor, and AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform are trademarks of Elliptic Labs.
