Redmi Note 11 series will probably also appear with a known proximity sensor problem

Redmi Note 11 Pro

The proximity sensor is small, but its value is great for devices. But Xiaomi has always had its problems with accuracy. And this problem has been accompanying the company's devices for more than a year. Xiaomi announced last year that it was determined to get rid of the problem. However, as it stands, Redmi Note 11 series will also continue to suffer from the incorrect operation of the proximity sensor in the global market.

It turned out that Xiaomi has once again installed proximity sensors from the Norwegian company Elliptic Labs in smartphones from the Redmi Note 11 series. Experts blamed these sensors for the malfunctioning of the proximity sensors. Xiaomi announced last year that it would be replacing the Elliptic Labs solution in favor of proximity sensors from Minghao Sensing.

But at a time of chip shortages and the need to optimize costs, Xiaomi has reintroduced a problematic sensor into the Redmi Note 11 series smartphones. And they did so quite consciously in order to save money and not increase the price of the devices. In this situation, consumers can only hope that Elliptic Labs virtual AI proximity sensor will finally do its job correctly.

"Xiaomi has been using and trusting Elliptic Labs reliable technology since 2016. Xiaomi starts rolling out our AI-based virtual proximity sensor in four smartphone models (Redmi Note 11, Note 11S, Note 11 Pro and Note 11 Pro 5G) this year. Replacing hardware sensors with the AI ​​Virtual Smart Sensor Platform ™ by Elliptic Labs enables cost-optimized innovations as well as human and environmentally friendly solutions while eliminating the risks of the ongoing supply chain. This makes Elliptic Labs an ideal partner for global smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi."


"Elliptic Labs virtual proximity sensor turns off the smartphone display and disables touch functionality on the screen when the user holds the device to their ear during a call. Without this ability to detect proximity, a user's ear or cheek could inadvertently trigger undesirable actions during a call, such as B. hanging up or dialing numbers while the call is still in progress. Automatically turning off the screen also saves battery power. Proximity detection is a core feature used in all smartphones on the market today. Elliptic Labs Virtual Proximity Sensor provides reliable proximity detection without the need for a dedicated hardware sensor. By replacing hardware sensors with software sensors, the AI ​​Virtual Proximity Sensor reduces device costs and eliminates procurement risk."
