According to the OLED Association, BOE Technology's first 6-Gen OLED fab in Chengdu, which BOE started constructing in May 2015, is on track to begin production in the 2nd half of 2017 (later than first estimates, but earlier than the revised ones). Production capacity will be 45,000 glass substrates.

BOE will invest a total of $3 billion USD in this new fab, but part of that is funded by Chengdu's High-Tech Industrial Development Zone. The new fab follow BOE's current 4.5-Gen pilot line that is already producing AMOLED displays.

In October 2016 BOE also announce a third OLED fab, in Mianyang. This will be another 6-Gen AMOLED fab, but it will produce flexible OLEDs on plastic substrates. According to BOE's plans, this fab will produce 45,000 sheets per month and will enter production in 2019. Total investment in this fab is estimated at 46.5 billion yuan ($6.87 billion USD).

In May 2016 BOE Display demonstrated several new AMOLED prototypes - including a 4.35" bendable and foldable OLED displays. The bendable panels offer a resolution of 1120x480 (HWVGA, 280 PPI) and a bending radius of 15 mm. The brightness is 350 nits. The color gamut is 100% NTSC. The foldable panels are the same - except the bending radius is much smaller at 5 mm.
