Towards the end of 2014 China's Everdisplay (EDO) started producing AMOLED displays with an initial capacity of 600,000 5" panels per month, and the company already claims at least one Chinese smartphone maker as a customer. Today Digitimes reports that the company (which they refer to as Hehui Optoelectronics, which is Everdisplay's Chinese name) has signed up HTC and Huawei a customer, with several new AMOLED phones expected later in 2015.

Everdisplay's first AMOLED display is a 5" 720p (293 PPI) panel - and it's likely that this will be the panel adopted by HTC and Huawei. On the other hand, EDO is also developing 5.5" and 6" AMOLEDs for mobile phones, so these may end up on the new phones too.

EDO is currently increasing the production capacity of its 4.5-Gen LTPS fab in Shanghai as the fab is not producing at full capacity yet - which will be 15,000 monthly substrates, or about a million 5" panels. The company is also developing a circular 1.4" panel for smart watches and a larger 8" AMOLED panel later in 2015. In July 2014 we published an interview with EverDisplay's marketing team.
