LG Display is ramping up its flexible OLED production capacity, starting with the E5 line in Gumi. This production line was already supposed to start producing a few months ago, but LGD still faces production issues (which reportedly caused LGD to lose a 3 million OLED supply deal with Xiaomi).

It is likely that LGD will begin mass production at the beginning of 2018, and Business Korea now reports that the four largest smartphone makers in China (Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi) have all confirmed plans to adopt LG's flexible OLEDs in 2018. According to the report, LGD will commit 20%-30% of its flexible OLED capacity in 2018 (or about 10-15 million panels) to Chinese phone makers.

It is a bit surprising that these companies will commit now to LGD if earlier reports were accurate, but Business Korea said that these agreements are confirmed. It is estimated that LGD will overcome its production issues by early next year.

Dear Oled-Info, could you please stop using this weird stretched picture?

Hello, it looks fine on our end... can you send us a screenshot, maybe there's some issue we are not aware of?

It is vertically stretched on both my PC and smartphone. Here is a screenshot: https://imgur.com/ZbxSgKg 

This is how this image should look like... it's actually okay but if you find it annoying and I am sure others think the same - I should not use it indeed. I replaced it with a different phone... Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
