In recent years, smartphones can be said to reach the bottleneck of development, so everyone is trying to break the bottleneck. The first thing we think of is the mobile phone screen, when Samsung launched a curved screen cell phone, it is amazing four, so many manufacturers began to launch a curved screen phone, but by the process and other factors, curved surface cell phone seems to be not very popular, at this time, the full screen phone was born.
Full screen can be said that this year’s mobile phone ring the most fire of a word, the full screen of the sale of mobile phones to the panel suppliers to see the hope, so the global set off the AMOLED panel factory expansion Tide, to flexible AMOLED product line is the majority. According to IHS Markit, the 2018 Flex AMOLED panel is expected to be 44% more productive than the global area demand, and the demand for flexible AMOLED panels is growing slower than the supplier expects.
From the current situation, most of the full screen phones do not use flexible panels, because the production costs of flexible panels higher. In addition, due to the lack of demand, flexible panel suppliers of factory capacity utilization is also low. This seems to enter a dead circle, in fact, it is not, it is understood that there are already manufacturers to start the development of screen folding mobile phones, if this kind of mobile phones can be produced, and sales are good, the flexible panel will also be in short supply.
