Everdisplay planning a $4.1 billion 6-Gen AMOLED fab by 2019

According to Digitimes, China-based AMOLED producer Everdisplay is planning to invest $4.1 billion USD to build a 6-Gen AMOLED factory. The upcoming factory will have a monthly capacity of 30,000 substrates and will start trial production in 2018.

Mass production in the new fab is expected by early 2019 - and will include panels from 1 to 13 inches. It is not mentioned in the report whether these are regular glass-based AMOLEDs or flexible ones.

Everdisplay started mass producing 5" 720p AMOLED displays towards the end of 2014 in a 4.5-Gen line with a monthly capacity of 20,000 substrates. Since then the company added more displays - wearable panels and larger 5.5" ones. Everdisplay is also developing flexible panels, transparent panels and high-density AMOLEDs for VR applications.
