In MWC 2016 (Feb 27 – Mar 2), Tianma, a Chinese AMOLED panel company, revealed 5.46 inch flexible AMOLED panel for the first time. This panel has HD resolution (720 x 1280) with the curvature radius of 20 mm. Additionally, Tinama also exhibited 5.5 inch and 5 inch FHD AMOLED panel, and 5 inch HD AMOLED panel.
Tianma added that the 5 inch HD AMOLED panel is expected to be actively mass produced in the first half of this year and it is being produced in smaller quantity and that additional investment will soon be carried out for Gen5.5.
Tianma is currently carrying out small volume of mass production using Ulvac Gen4.5 manufacturing equipment. Although Tianma continued presenting their products in display related exhibitions, it is their first time in a set exhibition such as MWC. This activity is analyzed to be a part of Tianma’s effort to further their client base before active AMOLED panel mass production.
