BOE Starts Flexible OLED Shipments to Huawei

The ETNews of Korea reports that BOE is starting to ship flexible OLEDs to Huawei, making it the first Chinese company to enter the market. The first shipment is due to be delivered at the end of this month from the BOE plant in Chengdu. The first products will be 5.5″, followed by 5.99″ and volumes are likely to be as low as 10,000 per month initially.

The report suggests that the display will be bent on the edges, like the Samsung Edge. It also suggests that Apple is in discussion with BOE (but then, it would be amazing if Apple wasn’t in discussion with anyone that could supply OLEDs! – Man. Ed.)
