In October 2017 BOE started to produce flexible OLED displays at its first flexible OLED line, the Chengdu B7 6-Gen fab. According to CLSA, BOE managed to increase its yields at the new fab which are now at over 60%.
The annual capacity of the B7 line, when complete and at 100% yields, will be 45,000 monthly 6-Gen substrates, or about 90 million smartphone OLEDs. According to an earlier CLSA report, BOE will ship 19 million smartphone OLEDs in 2018 and 41 million panels in 2019.
In addition to this fab in Chengdu, in October 2016 BOE announced another 6-Gen OLED fab, in Mianyang, with a similar capacity. In March 2018, BOE announced plans for a third 6-Gen OLED fab, this one in Chongqing.
