Modern smartphones are packed with a number of sensors that enable them to collect a variety of different kinds of data on who the user is, what the user is doing, and more. Most sensors are added to make smartphones more engaging, convenient, and increasingly useful for the user. Handset proximity sensors are commonly found in touchscreen smartphones and play the primary role of disabling accidental touch events.
Touch-enabled screens in smartphones often face the issue of touch events such as the cheek or ear coming in contact with the screen while on a call. To solve the issue, manufacturers have started placing proximity sensors close to the phone’s speaker, which detect any activity in the vicinity of the speaker. Typically, the phone assumes the touch events to be accidental and ignores them, avoiding any unwanted inputs or the activation of any other functions on the smartphone in the background.
Global Handset Proximity Sensors Market: Trends and Opportunities
A proximity sensor normally emits a beam of an electromagnetic radiation or an electromagnetic field and calculates the changes in the return signal. A variety of handset proximity sensors are available in the market, including electrical, optical, sonar, and magnetic. The segment of electrical handset proximity sensors includes varieties such as capacitive, photoelectric, and inductive sensors. The segment of optical handset proximity sensors includes varieties such as laser and infrared sensors.
