Xiaomi showed the technology that formed the basis of the design of the transparent TV Mi TV Lux
Xiaomi recently introduced Mi TV Lux, a transparent OLED TV. Now the company has shared some details of its design.
So, the components that should have been on the missing back panel were moved to the round base of the TV, which also serves as a stand. It now houses the processor, audio equipment, and other electronic components.
This design required a new cooling system and a large radiator. The stand contains a large number of vents that help with convective cooling.
The company chose the OLED panel because it can work without illumination, unlike a transparent LCD TV that would require external light. However, OLEDs are inherently opaque, and Xiaomi has developed an RGBW matrix. With this method, only half of the panel is covered with pixels, and the other half remains transparent. Pixels are small enough that they are not visible at the viewing distance, and the same applies to the spaces between them. The 55-inch protection glass is glued to the OLED panel with UV-curable glue.
The TV also has a thin metal frame that holds the glass and gives it extra strength.
Xiaomi Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition went on sale in mid-August. Their cost is $7,100.
The TV hardware platform is based on the MediaTek 9650 SoC with a Quad-core CPU. The amount of RAM and built-in flash memory is 3 and 32 GB, respectively. There is support for Dolby Atmos and the proprietary voice assistant XiaoAI 3.0.
