AU Optronics developed a new foldable AMOLED display that can endure very severe folding and environmental impact using symmetric panel stacking (SPS) with an innovative color filter structure design. The display also features a wide color gamut (95% BT.2020). This paper was awarded as a distinguished paper at SID and will be presented at DisplayWeek next month.
AUO demonstrated a 5" 1280x720 (295 PPI) AMOLED that was folded bidirectionally over 1.5 million times at a 4-mm bending radius - without any damage on the panel performance. AUO also developed a foldable 7.8-inch display that can be folded to a 5.5" display (bidirectionally as well). The resolution of the display in its open state is 1920x1440.
