Redmi K30 models to come Elliptic Labs' AI Virtual Proximity Sensor

Elliptic Laboratories AS, a company developing next-gen technologies for mobile devices and IoT appliances, has recently revealed that its AI Virtual Proximity Sensor, dubbed INNER BEAUTY®, would be used in Chinese consumer electronics giant Xiaomi's latest Redmi K30 smartphone models. Reportedly, this is the first time Xiaomi is using Elliptic Labs' technology in its smartphones.
According to reliable sources, INNER BEAUTY's advanced capabilities would allow OEMs to build simple, full-screen phones. It would substitute the conventional infrared proximity sensor with a virtual smart sensor that is powered by AI. The technology would effectively allow manufacturers to integrate larger screens and implement a cleaner design, given to the space made available from replacing larger integrated components.
Reports claim that, in 2016, Xiaomi and Elliptic Labs had first joined hands when the Chinese giant was about to launch its trend-setting Mi MIX phone. The partnership seems to be further building up with the adoption of INNER BEAUTY in almost eleven Xiaomi smartphones, including its latest flagship device Redmi K30 5G.
Speaking on the move, Laila Danielsen, CEO, Elliptic Labs, said that nowadays smartphone users are demanding for phone models with clean & stylish design and larger displays as well as sophisticated features that operate superior functionality.
INNER BEAUTY's accuracy and precision has inspired Xiaomi to choose it as a significant component in its latest lineup of flagship devices. The firms next-gen virtual sensor comes as a new piece of offering in this highly competitive market. Additionally, INNER BEAUTY offers OEMs abilities which are both lower in cost and better performing, making it an obvious choice over traditional hardware sensors, said Danielsen.
For the uninitiated, smartphones require proximity detection for disabling its touch functions, to switch off the screen while the user attends a call or while the phone is held near their ear during a call.
