Korean media TheElec reported on Thursday that Chinese language show maker BOE is negotiating with Chinese language smartphone logo Honor to fabricate a two-stack tandem OLED panel to use to a smartphone deliberate for later this 12 months.
The OLED panel has two emission layers, which objectives to scale back energy intake by means of roughly 30%. This implies the smartphone can pack a smaller battery which can permit the telephone to be thinner in design.
Honor sought after the two-stack tandem OLED panel to have a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistor (TFT) era, however BOE rejected the appliance, opting as a substitute to have the panel use the low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) TFT it already mass produces. The verdict is most likely because of the era best contributing to round 5% to ten% relief in energy intake, when a two-stack tandem could be already be decreasing energy intake by means of 30% by means of BOE’s estimation.
BOE is making plans to make use of the 3rd section line at its B7 manufacturing facility line in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, to fabricate the two-stack tandem OLED panel. B7 were used to fabricate OLED panels for iPhones previously, however this responsibility has shifted extra to the B11 line.
At the present, the B7 has a capability of 16,000 Gen 6 substrates per 30 days. Since it’s designed for unmarried stack OLED panels, the ones with just one emission layer, the appliance of two-stack tandem OLED panels will most likely lower this capability by means of part.

TheElec identified that BOE’s final intention with its collaboration with Honor is prone to protected revel in to fabricate two-stack tandem OLED panels geared toward iPads. It additionally is still noticed whether or not BOE will achieve commercially launching a two-tack tandem OLED panel geared toward smartphones with Honor.
