According to a Mi blogpost, when the television is turned off it looks like a glass display. The pictures displayed by it seem to be floating in the air, merging the virtual and the real to bring an unprecedented visual experience.
It has 55-inch transparent OLED panel that features a 1,50,000:1 static contrast ratio and a 10-bit panel displays 1.07 billion color combinations. The TV comes with a 120Hz refresh rate and 120Hz MEMC technology, giving viewers smoother and clearer motion representation.
The futuristic television is equipped with an AI Master Smart Engine and has MediaTek 9650 custom-made TV chip. The gadget has 93 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and 1-ms response time.
Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition also supports AI Master for Audio to detect the type of content being played and choose a fitting audio mode from a list ranging from movies, music, newsfeed, sports. The audio performance of the TV gets a notch higher with Dolby Atmos support.
Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition has an aesthetic design that includes a 5.7 mm ultra-thin body rectangular screen and a round base.
The base stand is covered with a millimeter-grade finish that looks like compact discs merging into any surroundings. All the processing units are creatively embedded on the TV's base stand, retaining the compact shape of the screen.
