Royole Corp., an industry leader in advanced flexible displays, flexible sensors, and smart devices, has showcased its fully flexible displays at the IFA 2018 consumer electronics show in Berlin. Royole is the only company in the world mass producing fully flexible displays. The company will exceed 50-million units per year at full capacity.
Royole’s patented flexible displays are thin, lightweight, and bendable, creating unique functionality and new applications. The thickness of the whole display is less than one fifth the diameter of the human hair (0.01 mm). When it bends, its radius can be less than 1 mm, which is even thinner than a pen refill.
Flexible displays provide greater freedom for product design compared to traditional flat panel displays, and they also greatly improve user-experience. At the same time, the application of novel processing technologies (printing or roll-to-roll) to fabricate the flexible display can largely reduce the cost of production. Royole’s flexible displays and flexible sensors are ideal for numerous applications in a variety of product categories including smartphones, electronics, smart home products, robotics, sports and fashion.
At the IFA 2018, Royole highlighted the virtually limitless possibilities for flexible technologies, including first-of-its-kind integration of flexible displays in a top hat and jacket.
Royole has amassed a wide range of intellectual property rights and key technical experiences in processing, materials, devices, circuits, electronic systems and module development.
The company manufactures its flexible displays at its massive 1.1-million-square-foot quasi-G6 mass-production campus in Shenzhen, China, with a total investment of around $1.7B.
“While curved displays have been the talk of the tech world this summer, Royole has developed and is now mass producing the next generation of fully flexible displays,” said Dr. Bill Liu, Founder and CEO of Royole. “Our patented fully flexible displays are thin, lightweight, rollable, and feature high-resolution and high-color saturation providing stunning image clarity and quality. Our engineers are currently working with over 220 partners worldwide to change the way people interact with technology in their personal environments.”
