According to OLEDNET, AUO is now focusing on flexible AMOLEDs, and the company will drive more resources towards developing flexible panels in 2015.

The 5" panel features a resolution of 720p (1280x720, 295 PPI) and uses a top-emission OLED architecture, side-by-side direct emission pixels and a plastic substrate. The panel is 0.35 mm thick, and can be bent around the edges of a cell phone (similar to Samsung's recently announced Note 4 Edge).
