Here are BOE's latest 55" OLED panel prototypes

A few days ago we reported that BOE Display started to supply OLED TV panels to Skyworth. Today we have this photo you see below, showing the new 55" UHD (4K) panels. The new panels were produced at BOE's 8.5-Gen pilot line in Hefei.

Skyworth is currently using LGD WOLED panels for its OLED TVs, and in December 2015 the company launched its latest OLED and OLED HDR TVs . Skyworth hopes to sell 200,000 OLED TVs by the end of March 2017. Skyworth said its main problem with those OLEDs is that LG Display cannot supply them with enough panels, especially the 65" ones - so now it seems Skyworth found its answer with BOE Display.

BOE Display is also looking into building a $1 billion Gen-8 mass production OLED TV fab. The company received a $20 million grant from the local government towards that fab.

The BOE OLED panel showed in 2018 High Tech Fair, Shenzhen, China. I checked the detail, it should be pre-Mass production products, not prototypes. There is a wide vertical line in right sample, and have many bright dots  in left one, which have a Skyworth LOGO.
