The idea of a transparent TV has been circulating between manufacturers for a number of years, but the Chinese company Xiaomi now wants to bring the first mass-market model onto the market – albeit for a steep price.
A television to look at or see through: The Xiaomi Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition is the first model of a transparent OLED TV that was developed for the masses. The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has now presented its innovation along with a few smartphones – for a proud price of around 6,113 euros. From August 16, the glass technology plant can already be purchased in China, the start for the rest of the world is still pending.
The 5.7 mm thin Xiaomi Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition has a 55 inch OLED display that you can see through. With a 4K resolution and 120 Hz, the model is well equipped to support a full 93 percent of the DCI-P3’s color spectrum. With a static contrast ratio of 150,000: 1 and a limitless dynamic contrast ratio, the transparent TV can display particularly rich black tones and strong brightness. A MediaTek MT9650 quad-core processor together with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space is built into the base. This combination is the prerequisite for the pre-installed MIUI for TV, software based on Android TV. Equipped with artificial intelligence in the AI Master Smart Engine integrated in the processor, over 20 algorithms are supposed to optimize the sound. As it should be for a Smart TV, the Xiaomi Mi TV LUX should have fast WiFi according to the ac standard, as well as three HDMI 2.1 ports and support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
With the transparent OLED TV, Xiaomi wants to change the TV industry. According to the manufacturer, the Xiaomi Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition is not only a television for private use, but can also be used in galleries, museums, department stores and theaters. At the current price, this TV innovation is not necessarily suitable for the masses, nor can it be said whether a transparent television makes so much sense.
