At its 10th anniversary event, Xiaomi introduced Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent edition.
Do note that, the 55-inch edge-to-edge transparent television is not a prototype or a concept, rather it’s an actual device that will go on sale in China starting 16th August. As a matter of fact, Mi TV LUX is the world’s first mass-produced transparent TV.
In addition to being transparent and having a futuristic design, the OLED TV is equipped with flagship-grade hardware that ensures unmatched visuals and astonishing audio output.
Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition: Specifications
The entire construction of Mi TV LUX consists of a 5.7mm ultra-thin body rectangular screen and a round base. Clearly, the television looks futuristic, and rather than a consumer electronic it seems to be an art piece.

Furthermore, the 10-bit panel displays 1.07 billion color combinations. Human eyes can’t perceive the extra-wide color spectrum offered by this TV. The 120Hz refresh rate coupled with the super-fast response time makes this OLED panel ideal for gaming as well.
