In 2016 China-based Everdisplay (EDO) started to construct a 6-Gen flexible AMOLED fab in Shanghai. In August 2017 EDO said that it finished the building's main steel frame roof, and yesterday EDO announced that it has finished constructing the building and the cleanrooms, and it has started to install the production equipment - a month earlier than it originally planned.

EDO's new fab will have a capacity of 30,000 monthly substrates (1500 x 1850 mm) and will be used to produce small and medium sized flexible AMOLEDs (1 to 15 inch). EDO aims to begin trial production in January 2019 and mass production in 2021.

EDO also announced its first flexible OLED panel - A 5.5" 1920x1080 (402 PPI) one, that can be curved with a bending radius of 6.5 mm. The brightness is 400 nits and the total thickness of the display including the cover glass is 1.5 mm. This panel is likely being produced at the company's 4.5-Gen production line in Shanghai.
