On the occasion of its ten year anniversary, Xiaomi has unveiled the Mi TV LUX. It is a significant launch as it is the world’s first mass-produced transparent TV. Keep reading to know more about the new Mi TV LUX, including its specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
Mi TV LUX Overview
Xiaomi took the moment to announce that it is now China’s top OLED Basic Module (OBM) manufacturer. It is also the only company in the world capable of producing transparent OLED TVs on a commercial scale. Xiaomi has even boasted that no other company is capable of producing products like Mi TV LUX.
Talking about the specs, the Mi TV LUX features a 55-inch transparent OLED panel. Users can see through the screen. The TV sports a static contrast ratio of 150,000:1. The TV also covers 93% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and supports 10-bit color depth. Altogether, the TV is capable of producing 1.07 billion colors. The panel comes with support for the 120Hz refresh rate. When turned off, the panel looks like ordinary glass. However, when the device is turned on, images seem to float on the screen.
The 5.7mm thick transparent glass resides on top of a circular base. The base is bulky compared to other TVs as it has to accommodate everything that has to be included in it. As you have might have guessed, the Mi TV LUX cannot be wall-mounted.
The TV is powered by custom made MediaTek 9650 chipset. It is a quad-core processor with four Cortex-A73 cores. The graphics are handled by Mali G52 GPU. This TV comes with AI Master Engine and offers over 20 different algorithms for optimization. Thus, the TV can intelligently recognize and optimize five major scenarios. The TV can also adjust the audio settings according to the content thanks to the AI Master for Audio. The TV also supports Dolby Atmos.
Software and Ports
For a smoother and clearer transition, Xioami has also included MEMC technology. The TV has a response rate of 1ms, which will come handy if you are thinking of using it for gaming. It features a cable interface, audio port, three HDMI ports, two USB ports, and an interface for a set-top box. The TV runs on a customized version of MIUI TV. Xiaomi has included an Always-On display feature that displays images and text. Similarly, the Home page, Settings, and My App have also been customized for a transparent screen.
