Japan Display announced that they decided to build a pilot OLED display manufacturing line in its Ishikawa Plant. The company will start to setup the manufacturing equipment towards the end of 2013, and small-scale mass production will begin in the spring of 2014.

This new pilot line will be a 4.5-Gen fab (730x920 mm) with a capacity of 4,000 substrates a month. While this is good news to hear JDI commit to an OLED line, it means that we shouldn't expect real AMOLED mass production from them till at least 2015.

Last month JDI unveiled a new 5.2" Full-HD (423 ppi) OLED panel, using an WRGB structure and an LTPS backplane, just four months after JDI announced a 4.5" 1280x720 (326 ppi) panel. JDI is showing the new panel at SID 2013.
