Briefly on The Xiaomi Mi Transparent TV History
For those who are wondering if this is the first transparent television in the history of humanity, then you’re wrong. It’s more like the world’s first mass-produced transparent television. Back in 2019, Panasonic introduced its own iteration of transparent television at IFA. As expected, it was more of a prototype and that too not the perfect one – but it was indeed fascinating.
Going back even further straight to 2017, LG introduced its transparent concept television as well at CES. Lastly, Samsung brought its own version as well in the year 2016. With that said, tech companies are working on these transparent OLED panels for a long time. While their version remained a mere concept or prototype, Xiaomi ended up launching its own mass-produced one. We’ll have to wait and see whether this new Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition makes it way globally or not.
