AUO develops a 1.4" circular AMOLED display

Taiwan's AU Optronics developed a new 1.4" circular AMOLED display, aimed for smart watches. AUO did not disclose the resolution of this display. AUO will be the second circular OLED maker - LG Display is currently producing 1.3" (320x320) circular plastic based AMOLED displays, used in their G Watch R smartphone.

AUO has been struggling with AMOLED production for years, but finally in August 2014 the company started mass production. The company currently offers four panels. Please contact us if you want to find a supplier for these OLEDs:

  • 1.63" 320x320 (square) panel for wearable devices (smart watches)
  • 4.3" 480x272
  • 4.97" 1280x720
  • 5.46" Full-HD

AU Optronics is producing those new panels at their AFPD Gen-4.5 LTPS fab in Singapore that has been converted to AMOLED production. The company's production capacity is quite limited.
