Virtually all the TV manufacturers generally have bigger size of screen or improved display resolution in their mind for production. Some are already selling 8K resolution TVs while others are trying to push out innovative solutions like a rollableÂ or transparent display. Xiaomi joins the ranks of the innovative TV makers with the launch of the Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition in China today.
Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition: Specifications and Features
Xiaomi launched theÂ 65-inch Mi TV LuxÂ in June earlier this year. The Transparent Edition keeps most of the specs the same but reduces the panel size and adds a jaw-dropping see-through display. Yeah, you read that right. This smart TV includes anÂ edge-to-edge transparent OLED displayÂ that looks like a simple slab of glass when the TV is turned off.
Though when you turn on this transparent Mi TV, Xiaomi says that you will feel like the picture is simply floating in the air. It will seem likeÂ â€œthe virtual and the realâ€Â are merging and everyoneâ€™s going to wave their hands behind this TV only to be amazed that itâ€™s visible on the front. Xiaomi co-founder Lei Jun demoed Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition on stage at the companyâ€™s 10th Anniversary event in the same fashion.
Talking about the specifications, you have a huge 55-inch transparent OLED panel with 93% DCI-P3 wide color gamut, 150000:1 static contrast ratio, and 10-bit HDR support. Whatâ€™s more, this transparent panel boasts a 120Hz refresh rate. All of the content can be upscaled to 120Hz using MEMC technology onboard, which is great.
The transparent OLED display is only 5.7mm in thickness and supports 120Hz refresh rate, which is astonishing.
The Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition is powered by a custom-made MediaTek 9650Â processor. Itâ€™s coupled with support for an AI Master Smart Engine, Dolby Atmos, and MIUI for TV. The software (especially the Home page, Settings, and My App sections) has also been customized for the transparent panel. ItÂ â€œis specifically designed to better demonstrate the visual features and strength of the transparent screen,â€Â says theÂ official blog post.
Price and Availability
The Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition has been priced at CNY 49,999 (around Rs. 5,37,399) in China. It will go on sale starting from August 16, alongside theÂ Mi 10 UltraÂ that also made its debut alongside this innovative TV.
