There are reports that Chinese panel producers BOE Display and China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) are both gearing up AMOLED development.

BOE is apparently focusing on Oxide-TFT backplanes for AMOLED displays, and have produced a 4" WQVGA AMOLED prototype. Back in August 2011 there were reports that BOE Display are planning a $3.5 billion 5.5-Gen fab in Monogola, but we're not sure if this is for real.

CSOT (a subsidiary of TCL) has decided to enter the AMOLED market. The company is planning a 4.5-Gen LTPS line in Shenzhen. This line will be able to produce both LCD and AMOLED panels. They hope to begin production before the end of 2012.
