In order to make the OLED a transparent TV, Xiaomi utilized transparent OLED technology (TOLED), which makes the images look like they’re floating.
Well, TOLED screens use transparent components all the way through the stack that makes up the screen, and with no need for backlighting, which is unlikely for other OLED screens that use a reflective cathode layer, which stops you from seeing through it.
However, it comes with support for Dolby Atmos, and AI Master for Audio that intelligently detects the type of content playing and chooses a fitting audio mode such as movies, music, newsfeed, sports, and more.
The 55-inch edge-to-edge transparent 4K OLED 10-bit panel comes with 1.07 billion color combinations, 120Hz refresh rate, 120Hz MEMC technology. It also supports Always-On display to customize display images and texts.
Of course, when the TV is switched off, you will get a better view of the transparent craftsmanship here, Xiaomi says “it looks like a mere glass display”
It is thick at a 5.7mm ultra-thin body, which carries around the base stand that is covered with a millimeter-grade finish for better immersive viewing experience and it fits into any surroundings.

It runs on custom-made MIUI for TV, which designed the Home Page, Settings, and My App specifically to provide a better demonstration of the visual features and strength of the transparent screen.
