Chinese Smartphone Vendors want Full HD Panels

Sources in the Taiwan supply chain are expecting an increase in orders for FullHD panels from smartphone vendors in China, following the recent release of a 5.5″ FullHD equipped smartphone from Meizu costing $160. Display manufacturers elsewhere, including Japan Display, LG Display BOE Technology and Tianma Micro-electronics are already reported to have increased production capacities for Full HD LTPS panels in anticipation of a surge in demand for inexpensive FHD models in China.
