Failing to be marketed in France, Xiaomi’s transparent Oled TV – the Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition – has set foot, and even two in Paris. It will be visible at Fnac des Ternes and also at the Xiaomi Sébastopol store.

To celebrate its tenth anniversary with great fanfare, Xiaomi for its part truly marketed its first transparent Oled TV last year in China. The Xiaomi Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition thus uses a Full HD Oled panel without a back plate in order to offer a transparency rate of around 38%. This is a transparent Oled panel manufactured by LG Display and sold by the professional division for advertising display (55EW5TF-A). The slab seems to be placed on the imposing circular foot which embeds all the connections as well as the 2 x 8 W audio system. Despite this low power, the audio system still left us a feeling of quality and seems good. better than other systems advertised as much more powerful. The only 5 mm thick panel and its transparent side really give the impression that the image is floating above the TV. For the rest, you still have to deal with a Full HD definition – necessary to leave enough room between the pixels to offer a certain transparency – quite low and an interest in broad daylight which remains very limited.

In broad daylight, interest remains much more limited.

This television set sold for 50,000 yuan in China, or a little over 6,100 €, is not marketed in France anyway, but the most curious will still be able to observe this originality at Fnac des Ternes (Paris, 17th) in the Xiaomi space or even at the Xiaomi Sébastopol store located at 39, boulevard de Sébastopol (Paris, 1er).
