Xiaomi has announced the Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition, the world's first fully transparent TV to be mass-produced for the consumer market.
Transparent screens are not new. Over the past decade, Samsung and LG have featured transparent TVs in various exhibitions, both transparent OLED panels and LCDs.
LG showed another transparent TV last year and promised to release a serial model in the future. And it looks like Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition is built on LG Signage.
Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition uses a 5.7mm thick transparent OLED panel that supports 120Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color, and 93% coverage of DCI-P3. Support for MEMC technology and an impressive 1ms pixel response time is also announced. With this stunning transparent display, it seems like pictures are floating.
The entire element base is placed in a non-removable round base, which also serves as a stand. The hardware base is a custom-made MediaTek 9650 SoC with AI Master Smart Engine, which offers more than 20 optimization algorithms and a special adaptive mode for five major use scenarios.
The Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition also has a feature called AI Master for Audio, which detects the type of content being played and automatically selects an audio mode. Also, it has support for Dolby Atmos.
The rest of the novelty’s characteristics will be presented by Xiaomi closer to August 16, when the TV goes on sale in the Chinese market. It can be purchased for RMB 49,999 ($7,200).
