The Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition combines cutting-edge display technology and exquisite industrial design. This is the company’s major foray into the future of TV forms. When Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition is turned off, it looks like a mere glass display. The pictures it displays seem to be floating in the air, merging the virtual and the real to bring an unprecedented visual experience.

Unlike traditional TVs that come with a back panel, it creatively embeds all the processing units in its base stand, preserving the compact shape of the screen and in the meantime brings about countless technical challenges.

Having overcome all those difficulties, Xiaomi has become the world’s first mass producer of transparent OLED TVs, as well as China’s number one OLED Basic Module (OBM) manufacturer. That means Xiaomi is currently the only TV brand in China capable of individually handling the mass production process of a product as complex as Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition.

Not a TV, but an art piece, it adopts an aesthetic design that combines a 5.7mm ultra-thin body rectangular screen and a round base, creating an ultra-immersive viewing experience. The base stand is covered with a millimeter-grade finish that resembles compact discs blending perfectly into any surroundings. The TV is perfect not only for homes, but also for galleries, museums, shopping malls, and theaters.

It runs on custom-made MIUI for TV. The user interface – including the Home page, Settings, My App – is specifically designed to better demonstrate the visual features and strength of the transparent screen, creating a unique user experience.
