According to industry news on August 8, BOE recently invested in an ultra-small size Micro OLED production line in Kunming, Yunnan Province. Following Samsung's display, BOE began producing Micro OLED panels for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).
In August last year, BOE announced the announcement of its investment in the production line of OLED microdisplay devices. According to the announcement, BOE intends to cooperate with Yunnan North Aodede Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd., Gaoping Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., Yunnan Yuzhong Industry Development Group Co., Ltd. The responsible company cooperated and invested 1.15 billion yuan to build the first large-scale OLED microdisplay device production line project in Kunming, Yunnan Province, engaged in the production, sales and R&D of OLED microdisplay devices.
It is understood that the total investment of the project is 1.15 billion yuan. The project company is Kunming BOE Display Technology Co., Ltd. The construction site is located in the Linkong Economic and Technological Development Zone of Yuzhong New District, Kunming. The main products are: 0.5 inch 800×600, 0.41 inch 800× 480, 0.80 inch 1920 × 1200, 0.5 inch 1920 × 1080 OLED microdisplay device, with a total capacity of 1 million pieces / year.
Ored is the only company in China that has the key core technology of OLED microdisplay devices and has the ability to mass produce multi-spec OLED microdisplay devices. Gaoping Technology is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kopin Corporation, Inc. of the United States. Kopin is a reality. A provider of voice enhancement and wearable electronic terminal product solutions.
The industry is concerned about how much Micro OLEDs BOE can actually supply to the market. Just like smart phones use OLEDs, it is also remarkable that BOE can quickly pursue after Samsung's display. As the VR experience hall in China's arcade game market gradually attracts more popularity, there are also many startup companies in this field. BOE's promotion of Micro OLED production will also accumulate more experience in technology development and mass production.
