Xiaomi has unveiled the world’s first mass-produced transparent OLED TV – the Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition.
The launch comes as part of the company’s 10th anniversary celebrations, which also saw it launch several new smartphones.
The Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition features a 5.7mm-thin 55-inch OLED panel that mimics a plain piece of glass when switched off.
When turned on, the TV’s pictures appear to be floating in the air, Xiaomi claimed.
To accomplish this, the TV is equipped with Xiaomi’s AI Master Smart Engine, along with a MediaTek 9650 custom-made TV chip.
This combination provides 20 optimisation algorithms and dedicated optimisation for five major use scenarios, which enable the TV to intelligently adjust the image.
