Taiwan-based Innolux has started to produce flexible AMOLED displays, starting with a round 1.39-inch 400x400 (287 PPI) panel. The new AMOLED is aimed towards wearable (smart-watch) applications and is now in mass production.
It is great to see another display producer entering the OLED market. This is also the first flexible AMOLED on the market besides those made by Samsung and LG Display. Innolux is willing to sell these panels to low-volume customers, contact us for more details. You can also view the full technical specifications of the new AMOLED here.
Innolux, a subsidiary of Foxconn, has been demonstrating OLEDs for a long time, and the company demonstrated its first flexible AMOLED prototypes in 2016, saying that it plans to start mass producing small-sized flexible OLEDs in 2017.
In 2016, Innolux's CEO was skeptical on the competitiveness of OLEDs, so it is not clear what are Innolux's plans going forward. Following Foxconn's Sharp acquisition it was reported that Foxconn may aim to integrate the OLED units of Innolux and Sharp.
