Xiaomi debuted the world's first mass-produced transparent TV — the Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition — during its 10-year anniversary, according to a blog post on its webpage.

Tagged at roughly $7,200 (¥50,000 RMB), the new transparent TV is set to release on August 16.

The new product furthers the company's minimalist design and earlier releases. The colossal 55-inch ultra-thin display comes with edge-to-edge transparent and self-illuminating design. At only 5.7 mm thick, the TV feels like it suspends imagery in air, and appears like a nondescript panel of glass when turned off.

The new Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition contains all of its processing units within the base stand — reinventing the traditional TV design. The transparent OLED panel is set at a 150,000:1 static contrast ratio, in addition to an infinite dynamic contrast ratio — which means it supports rich blacks and unprecedented brightness.

Transparent TV with more colors than eyes can see

It uses DCI-P3 93% color spectrum support, and the 10-bit panel employs a 1.07-billion-color combination — much more than human eyes can even see. Moreover, with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, the 120 Hz MEMC technology guarantees a 1-ms response rate, which means low-latency, smooth and clear motion.

The new transparent TV uses Xiaomi's AI Master Smart Engine, along with a MediaTek 9650 custom-made TV chip, and comes with more than 20 optimization algorithms designed to optimize five major use scenarios and refine graphic resolutions intelligently, for the most vibrant pictures, reports HypeBeast.

Making use of Dolby Atmos support, the device detects which kind of content is on display, and decides which audio mode best fits the scene. The Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition even features a fully-customizable MIUI interface developed to provide meticulous control over visual features built into the TV.
