Although Xiaomi is mainly known in this country for its smartphones, the Chinese manufacturer offers a whole range of products – including TVs. A very special television is now going into series production and enchants with its breathtaking appearance. However, potential buyers have to swallow the price.
Electronics trade fairs like CES or IFA not only offer manufacturers the opportunity to present new products under the spotlight. The exhibitions are also the ideal stage for concepts that look great but often never go into production in this form. It was similar in 2017 when Panasonic showed a completely transparent television at IFA. Xiaomi is now proving that there is another way.
Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition: Xiaomi introduces TVs to look through
The Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition also has a transparent OLED display, reports MobiFlip. When switched off, you can see through the screen as if through glass. The diagonal measures 55 inches, and 4K resolution and a high refresh rate of 120 Hz are also part of the game. This means that the Xiaomi television is even suitable for gaming. The Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition is only 5.7 mm thin.
Inside the TV is a quad-core processor from MediaTek, which is supported by 3 GB of RAM and is supposed to run the software smoothly. Here Xiaomi relies on its own MIUI for TV, which is based on Android TV. Interesting: The so-called “AI Master Smart Engine” is integrated in the chip. It should improve the sound with over 20 algorithms. Also on board are three HDMI connections (2.1), fast WiFi ac and support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. 32 GB of storage space is available for apps.
This is how we liked the transparent television from Panasonic at the time:
Transparent Xiaomi TV costs more than 6,000 euros
The noble Xiaomi television is not cheap. The equivalent of more than 6,000 euros should cost the good piece when the TV set in China on the market. In addition, there are already doubts about its suitability for everyday use. During the presentation, the room was clearly darkened, which, according to MobiFlip, raises the question of how good the picture is in normally lit rooms. The answer to this will probably only be provided by tests.
