Unlike traditional TVs that come with a back panel, Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition has none, it creatively embeds all the processing units in its circular base stand, preserving the compact shape of the screen by housing the electronics and speakers.
The base stand is covered with a millimeter-grade finish that resembles compact discs blending perfectly into any surroundings.

Similarly, this panel leverage on its its 93% coverage of DCI-P3 color spectrum support, hence, Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition is capable of restoring the awe-inspiring colors that bring images to life.

Xiaomi Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition is equipped with an AI Master Smart Engine, along with the MediaTek 9650 custom-made TV chip, with over 20 optimization algorithms and dedicated optimization for 5 major use scenarios, a combination which intelligently refines the graphic resolution to create vibrant pictures.
The quad-core Cortex-A73 CPU is backed up by a powerful Mali-G52 MC1 GPU with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage.
For User friendly experience, Mi TV LUX Transparent Edition runs on a custom-designed version of MIUI for TV. The UI has been tweaked to take advantage of the transparent display.
