Xiaomi Introduces Transparent OLED TV
Chinese consumer electronics brand Xiaomi is celebrating its tenth anniversary and has released several new products to mark the occasion. Of interest, is the fully transparent 55-inch OLED Mi TV LUX OLED TV.
It looks like a mostly transparent sheet of glass on a massive base, giving the appearance of a clear window when off, but when turned on, makes the images appear as if they are floating.
According to the spec sheet, it claims a static contrast ratio of 150,000:1, 10-bit colour, and 93% coverage of DCI-P3. The panel is capable of refreshing at 120Hz and also offers 120Hz MEMC motion interpolation. There's also an impressive 1ms pixel response time, but the resolution is only stated as 1920 x 1080 pixels, so no 4K here.
Featuring the MediaTek 9650 chipset with Xiaomi's AI Master Smart Engine image processing, it offers over 20 optimization algorithms and dedicated optimization for five major use scenarios. There's also a feature called AI Master for Audio, which is said to detect the type of content being played and automatically select the appropriate audio mode - there's also support for Dolby Atmos.
According to Xiaomi this TV cannot be wall-mounted and is designed exclusively to be placed on its circular base - but would you want to anyway? The Xiaomi transparent OLED isn't aimed at those chasing the ultimate in picture quality, but its transparent glass screen sure is cool.
Australian availability or pricing have not been confirmed as yet, but it goes on sale overseas this month for USD $7,200.
