Xiaomi today unveiled what it considers to be the third defining piece of technology for its 10th anniversary - the 55" Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition. As the name implies, and as Xiaomi will pridefully tell you, this is the world's first fully edge-to-edge transparent OLED display - the images are displayed on its transparent screen and thus appear to be "floating in the air" - taking a cue from most science fiction settings. Xiaomi has also taken this opportunity to announce that they've become the first China-based company in the world to produce transparent OLED TVs, as well as China's number one OLED Basic Module (OBM) manufacturer.
The 55" Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition features a 10-bit, 120 Hz OLED panel in 4K resolution, with a static contrast ratio of 150,000:1 (dynamically, Xiaomi says it's infinite, as do other OLED manufacturers regarding that particular technology. The panel supports 93% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum. The transparency has been achieved by moving all hardware to the base of the television, in a way never before seen in this consumer category. A MediaTek 9650 custom-made TV chip is in charge of image processing, and is paired with Dolby Atmos for an all-encompassing experience in the visual and audio fields. The TV features an always-on feature, allowing users to use the set as an art showcase. The TV will be available starting from 10 am August 16th for RMB 49,999 (over 6000 USD/EUR).
