Xiaomi unveils a ridiculous see-through TV

The 55-inch display will cost 49,999 yuan (about $7,200).


As part of its 10th anniversary celebration, Xiaomi revealed a transparent TV, the Mi TV Lux OLED Transparent Edition. When it’s turned off, the display looks like a piece of glass. When it’s turned on, images appear to float in thin air, or so Xiaomi says.

The 55-inch transparent OLED panel is likely based on LG’s 55-inch transparent 55EW5TF-A display. It has the same 120Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color depth and 1ms response time.

The Mi TV Lux OLED will cost 49,999 yuan (about $7,200). It goes on sale in China on August 16th. It’s unlikely that we’ll see this for sale outside of Asia.
