Qeexo has officially debuted its EarSense software, made to eliminate the proximity sensor by performing its primary function on the software side. Where a traditional proximity sensor turns off a phone’s display if it detects that something is near it or it’s being covered, Qeexo’s EarSense software uses the device’s touch screen to detect a touch from a face or an ear, effectively mimicking the function of a proximity sensor. EarSense is now available for device manufacturers to license and use, meaning it could be making its way into consumer devices as early as this year, though nobody has thus far announced their intention to use the software.
