The best TVs offer such a good view, it is like looking through a window at another world. But – and stay with me – what if your next TV was like a window, so whatever is behind your TV? This is what promises $ 7,000 new Xiaomi transparent OLED. Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition is a new product announced as part of the celebration of Xiaomi’s 10th anniversary which, according to press images, is about displaying solitary objects floating in space.
This TV is able to be transparent in part due to the fact that Xiaomi placed all the intestines at its circular base rather than behind the screen. But the most magical part of how she actually made a first OLED display through the use of transparent OLED (TOLED) technology. As mentioned on the Universal Display Corporation page that breaks down all specifications, TOLED screens use transparent components during the stack created by the screen, and without the need for backlighting (each diode emits its own light, hence the acronym), images can look like they are pontoon. Most other OLED screens use a reflective cathode layer, which prevents you from seeing through it, even if your back is removed.
The result is a translucent 55-inch TV that “looks like a plain glass screen” when turned off. Powered on it, it has a refresh rate of 120Hz, 1ms response time, 150,000: 1 contrast ratio, and it has 93 percent DCI-P3 color profile. In terms of the screen, it looks good, but I have some concerns that Xiaomi press release does not really respond.
For example, apparently me can watch or play anything on this TV, but what kind of content will work best on it? The press fortune shows animals simply cold in the void. Xiaomi talks about its smart AI Master Engine and custom-made MediaTek 9650 chip to be able to intelligently choose how the photo is displayed, but does not mention how it is able to isolate objects from a background as the images show – if that’s even something he can do. Maybe, it ‘s just showing some very high resolution .png files, and for everything else, I can expect it to have a slightly transparent quality to it, which I can not say is something I have ever wanted. And even if you are viewing content that is optimized for this screen, it is possible that the dormant parts of the screen may not be as clear as you might expect them to be. LG showed something similar in 2019 that was built for Signage purposes, and the frame has a darker hue to it. Xiaomi press images actually reflect that the panel may be a little darker, so this may be true for the way it looks personally.
This TV is set to go out in China for only 49,999 RMB (about $ 7,200), and will be available to order on August 16th. Honestly, I would love to see him in action. All we have in the West are these boring OLEDs that I can not Look through.
